To facilitate major contributions to EMSL's user program by external researchers, EMSL announces the establishment of the Wiley Visiting Scientist Program. The purpose is to recognize, reward, and encourage distinguished scientists to come to EMSL for extended periods of time and make significant contributions to the EMSL user program by providing input to and recommendations on the path forward for EMSL. Two types of visits will be considered under this program: (1) Short term - for visits up to 3 months, with a minimum stay of 1 month, and (2) long term - for visits up to 1 year, with a minimum stay of 6 weeks.

In 2012, EMSL selected Hideaki Koike as Wiley Visiting Scientist. Koike works for the Molecular Systems Bioengineering Research Group at Japan’s National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology.

Expectations: Wiley Visiting Scientists are expected to actively contribute to the success of EMSL as a user facility including support of EMSL and the user program beyond their own specific research projects. Examples include participation on partner proposals for development of new capabilities, mentoring EMSL staff, and assisting in long-term facility planning. Visiting scientists are also expected to interact with the EMSL scientific leadership team and attend and provide input, whenever possible, at meetings with the team.

Benefits: The Wiley Visiting Scientist program provides a mechanism to formally recognize the partnerships between EMSL and investigators making significant contributions to support the EMSL mission. These partnerships will be acknowledged whenever possible including in EMSL annual reports and on the EMSL website. In recognition of their efforts, visiting scientists will receive the formal title of Wiley Visiting Scientist, will be looked to for advice concerning the future of the EMSL facility, and can request special time allocations on high demand instrumentation that is normally reserved for EMSL staff. In addition, travel funding and per diem expenses are available.

Qualifications: The Wiley Visiting Scientist program is open to scientists worldwide who are working in the area of environmental molecular sciences and who are at least 5 years post doctorate. In addition to conducting their own research, applicants must be willing to participate in activities to enhance the EMSL user program.
