​Call for a proposal – hosting a WASP distinguished guest professor

​WASP is announcing funding for guest professors for a period of two years, expecting to stay at the host university approximately six months per year. The areas are: autonomous systems, software, AI/MLX and AI/math.​

Deadline: Jan 15, 2022

In total, two positions will be founded, and the WASP university partners can apply. The funding is valid for all WASP areas (autonomous systems, software, AI/MLX and AI/math).
The main ranking criterium is the applicant's excellence, the probability of the realization, and finally, the program/aim of the visit. WASP also welcomes a combination with other initiatives or/and involvement of Swedish industry. 
Financial conditions are flexible and will match the levels of top-level researchers.  
WASP is expecting to get the proposals during Q4 2021. Internal Chalmers deadline is Dec 20. A university can propose several candidates. 
During Q1 or Q2 2022, WASP will approve in total two proposals. A strict policy of gender balance (50/50) will be followed. 
The expected start of the visit is Q3/Q4 2022, or Q1 2023.
