CCC Virtual Visiting PhD Student Program

We are delighted to announce the kick off of the CCC Virtual Visiting PhD student program for 2020. A list of host faculty members is posted here.

Overview: The goal of the program is provide late-stage PhD students with opportunities to interact with scholars at other institutions. 

Eligible students: PhD students participating in this year’s job market or who would normally be participating in the market but are facing delays and uncertainties due to recruitment limits this year. Eligibility includes but is not limited to students who participated in this year’s CCC conference. We will consider applications from PhD students at earlier stages and from post-docs, though will give preference as noted above.

Program terms

  • Length: Varies, depending on host scholar
  • Type of engagement: Varies, depending on host; may include mix of virtual seminars, workshops, classes, and discussions with PhD students and scholars at host institution
  • Relationship with host institution: May be formal or informal, depending on context
  • Compensation: None
  • Note: Depending on the progress of the program, we may be able to initiate a second round of matches in the fall, though this is not guaranteed at this point.

Application procedure: If you are interested in participating as a student, here is the procedure.

  1. Options: Review the list and see what opportunities would be interesting to you.
