new program of the Newfoundland and Labrador Centre for Applied
Health Research (NLCAHR) will bring established scholars to
the province who are actively involved in research linked
to the centre’s priority themes.
Dr. Stephen Bornstein, director of the NLCAHR, said the scholar-in-residence
program will build linkages and facilitate collaboration of
local researchers with external researchers and research organizations.
“We want to provide input into our ongoing research
activities and research plans as well as to the work of graduate
students at Memorial,” he said.
The program will accept its first visiting scholar in September
2005 to take up residence at NLCAHR’s offices at Memorial
“During his or her tenure, the scholar-in-residence
will collaborate with NLCAHR-affiliated researchers and give
at least one lecture per term on a research topic of mutual
interest to the scholar and NLCAHR’s affiliated researchers,”
said Dr. Bornstein. “As well, the visiting scholar will
participate in seminars and meetings and in other activities
of the research community and be available for consultation
with graduate students.”
The scholar-in residence will be appointed for a period of
one or two terms, with no more than one scholar appointed
at any time. The scholar will receive a stipend of $15,000
(in salary or research grant) for a full academic year’s
residence or $7,500 for a single semester to be provided on
terms approved by Memorial’s Office of Research. Office
facilities and services will be provided by NLCAHR. Up to
$2,000 per scholar will be provided in reimbursement for travel
and/or relocation expenses on submission of appropriate receipts.
Memorial researchers and research teams that feel they would
benefit from the involvement of a visiting scholar are encouraged
to disseminate this information and recruit applicants. For
