Resources for Faculty and Staff


The VSPA is committed to collaborating with faculty and staff to appoint postdocs, visiting scholars, and visiting student researchers and providing resources that compliment their research activities. We value your efforts and strive to strengthen our partnership so that the VSPA community gets the most out of their time at our great university. On this page you will find guidance on how to compliantly and efficiently appoint postdocs and visiting researchers, as well as our recommendations on how to utilize VSPA and campus resources to enhance their experience and support their success.


Faculty supervisors/sponsors are the linchpins of the postdoc and visiting researcher experience, and vital to the success of their program. We want to make it as easy as possible to get the information you need to help your visitors and postdocs succeed. This page serves as your roadmap.


Staff provide invaluable expertise, service, and connections to the communities we all serve. As the link between VSPA and our community, staff are essential to the success of our scholars' arrival and beyond. Here we provide guidance on appointments, processing times, fees, and payment.
