Each year ILR welcomes scholars from around the world to further their research and/or create new collaborative research partnerships in industrial and labor relations.
Positions are unpaid and offer no administrative support but do provide access to all of Cornell University's libraries. Visiting fellows are also invited to participate in ILR seminars and to present their research.
Graduate students currently enrolled at other institutions are not eligible for the Visiting Fellows Program. A PhD is one of the requirements. Cornell University cannot accommodate graduate students from other institutions who want to come to the ILR School for research or internships.
Becoming a Fellow
Becoming a Visiting Fellow in the ILR School is through nomination by an ILR faculty member. Visiting Fellow candidates must have pre-established, current academic and professional connections with faculty and research partners. We have a limited number of Visiting Fellow slots each year so appointments are selective.
Visiting Fellows are expected to contribute to the intellectual life of the school. This contribution may take the form of presentations of your research in faculty seminars within the school and the Cornell community. In keeping with U.S. visa eligibility rules, visitors must remain in residence at ILR for the term of the appointment.
Please email International Programs office for more details and questions.
