Collège de France Professors
Through our partnership with the Collège de France (CdF) in Paris, the PWIAS encourages UBC faculty to nominate CdF Professors for UBC visits lasting 1 – 3 weeks, or longer. Nominations can be sent directly to the PWIAS Director, outlining the potential synergy between the visiting CdF Professor and on-going UBC research activities. Joint nominations among collaborating UBC faculty members are encouraged. A list of CdF Professors is available at https://www.college-de-france.fr/site/en-chairs-and-professors/professors.htm.
