The regulations and conditions of your acceptance and work at the university will depend on the length, purpose and sources of financing of the stay. But if you are an academic and/or researcher, a doctoral student or post-doctoral researcher this page is for you.

If your aim is a permanent position at Vilnius university you are requested to take part in selection for new employees announced by VU HR department, apply as a post-doctoral researcher or get invited by the faculty. You are considered permanent VU staff when you have a paid position with Vilnius University. More information on this status is available here.

If you would like to come as a visiting staff the main point of contact regarding your individual work program will be the Faculty which makes the decision on accepting their visiting staff members. You are considered a visiting staff when you are a PhD candidate, guest lecturer or guest researcher employed by another university and:

  • Your stay is financed by a 3rd party/project/programme
  • You take an unpaid position at Vilnius University (Adjunct Agreement)
  • You are offered a Vilnius University grant

Finding the right contact

Please note, that all the decisions on any staff position are made by the faculty, department authorities and/or individual researches. Therefore, you are encouraged to contact the responsible person at the respective faculty to find out about available short-stay positions. In case of doubt of the right contact at the Faculty, do not hesitate to use general address (e-mail: ) and your enquiry will be forwarded to the right addressee. If you agree with the department about the goals of your stay the invitation letter will be sent to you.
