The Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics supports visiting researchers in theoretical physics who are faculty at teaching intensive U.S. colleges. Applicants need to be from non-Ph.D.-granting institutions and from institutions with greater emphasis on teaching (as measured, for example, by teaching load). Ongoing research activity is also a criterion.
Each award funds a total of three round trips and up to six weeks of local expenses, to be used over a period of up to three years, usually 2 weeks per year. Approximately 6-8 scholars are chosen each year.
Scientists interested in this program should apply via the web page link below and upload a vita together with a statement describing their research interests and teaching requirements before November 1, 2018. Each applicant must arrange for at least one letter of recommendation to be submitted by this date. Awards will be announced by December 15, 2018.

About Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics
The Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP) hosts more than 1000 long-term scientific visitors every year, who interact with one another as well as the faculty, postdoctoral scholars and graduate fellows that constitute the KITP’s intellectual core. These unique interactions reveal unexpected synergies, promote the interchange of new ideas, and create powerful networks that move science forward.
The American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) is a partner in the AIP Career Network, a collection of online job sites for scientists, engineers, and computing
professionals. Other partners include Physics Today, the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM), American Physical Society (APS Physics), AVS Science and Technology,
IEEE Computer Society, and the Society of Physics Students (SPS) and Sigma Pi Sigma.
