A visiting scientist is defined as anyone who will be working, training, or observing in a Marywood University laboratory and/or facility, and who is not subject to or covered as a Marywood University employee or student. A visiting scientist is someone who will have on-going, hands-on access to Marywood University facilities and resources that are not otherwise available to the public and whose work might be subject to IRB approval.
All visiting scientists are precluded from commencing any work at Marywood University until a fully-executed Visiting Scientist Agreement is obtained. Marywood University faculty members must require that a potential visiting scientist complete and submit a Visiting Scientist Agreement Form. The Visiting Scientist Agreement Form must be duly executed by all parties prior to arrival of the visiting scientist at Marywood University. If the visiting scientist will be representing an academic institution, company, or organization, or if his/her activities as a visiting scientist will be subject to employment or contractual requirements at his/her academic institution, company, or organization, the Visiting Scientist Agreement must be co-signed by the appropriate individual who is authorized to execute agreements on behalf of and bind the outside academic institution, company, or organization.
Prior to beginning research, the Visiting Scientist must complete mandatory Responsible Conduct of Research on-line training. When creating an account, individuals must associate with Marywood University in order that the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs may verify the training completion. This training may be completed on one of the following websites: www.citiprogram.org or www.responsibleresearch.org.
The Marywood University faculty member who will host the visiting scientist is responsible for having the Visiting Scientist Agreement Form signed prior to the visit. The Marywood University faculty member will complete the Visiting Scientist Agreement Questionnaire and forward the signed Visiting Scientist Agreement Form and the Visiting Scientist Agreement Questionnaire to the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs for review.
The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs reserves the right to request additional information or clarification of the information provided in order to complete the review. If changes to the agreement are requested by the visiting scientist or the visiting scientist’s academic institution, company, or organization, or if changes are deemed necessary by the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs will negotiate the changes with the visiting scientist (for agreements with individuals) or with the outside entity (for visiting scientists representing an academic institution, company, or organization).
The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs will provide a fully executed Visiting Scientist Agreement to the Marywood University faculty member.
