4.7.2 Visiting Fellows
This research takes place under the terms of an external researcher agreement, with the sponsorship of an OIST faculty member. Agreements are valid for up to one calendar year, extensions beyond the initial agreement term require a repeat of the approval process prior to the expiry of the original agreement. Note that fellows employed under formal awards from foundations made with OIST (i.e. where OIST is the host institution), are classified as “Fellows” and are managed separately. Definitions for Visiting Fellows are described in “Guidelines for Title and Job Class”.
