NOAO encourages, and in some cases can provide support for, Ph.D. scientists and engineers in OIR astronomy and related fields to visit any of its sites to interact with Observatory staff and carry out research programs, e,g. during sabbatical or summer leave from their home institutions.
The terms of such visits are negotiable, and their length may range from a few weeks to several months. Support can range from providing office space and computing resources to paying for travel related costs, to providing summer or sabbatical salary supplements, according to need and available funds.
