UW units can now propose researchers from abroad as candidates for visiting lecturers and submit their applications by 5th May. By 12th June, the ranking list of selected candidates will be announced. 

Applications of candidates should be submitted by UW host departments (following the consent of a candidate).

The UW units are requested to send applications in a pdf file on visiting(at)uw.edu.pl by 5th May 2021.


The application needs to consist of: 

  • Visiting Lecturer Application Form (in English or Polish), signed by the candidate,
  • Motivation Statement (prepared in Polish by the host department, signed by its head and its liaison officer),
  • The candidate’s professional Curriculum Vitae, along with the list of publications.

The commission appointed by the UW Rector will evaluate applications based on candidates’ scientific achievements, teaching experience and justification prepared by the host department.


So far, 20 academic teachers have come to the University of Warsaw. The number of places depends on the length of stay declared by scientists. The commission decides on the allocation of places. Visiting lecturers will work from Warsaw, in the same mode as other faculty employees ─ online and hybrid. They will be employed under the Integrated Development Programme of the University of Warsaw. Their employment contract can last from two to five months.


The ranking list of candidates and the reserve list will be published at www.zip.uw.edu.pl by 12th June 2021.


The employment procedure will be coordinated by the University of Warsaw Welcome Point.
