ISSI Call for Proposals for 2017:
Johannes Geiss Fellowship
The JGF is established to attract to ISSI - for limited duration visits - international scientists of stature, who can make demonstrable contributions to the ISSI mission and increase ISSI's stature by their presence and by doing so will honour Johannes Geiss for his founding of ISSI and his contributions to ISSI, and for his many contributions to a broad range of space science disciplines.
JGF would offer a stipend, paying travel expenses and living expenses for a stay at ISSI of 1-6 months, possibly in several separate intervals, to coincide with time availability on university academic calendars. In return for the stipend, the JGF recipient would be expected to participate actively in the work of ISSI, be available to collaborate with academic and research institutes in Switzerland and neighbouring countries, and possibly give public lectures. This can be done in close collaboration with the Pro ISSI Association. ISSI might also consider involving its branch in China, ISSI-Beijing, in these activities. The JGF can also provide additional funding and support to scientists in sabbatical period.
