The University of Washington-University of Bergen Faculty Exchange Program Visiting Professor appointments at the University of Bergen, Norway, is available for a minimum term of one quarter. Appointments can also be arranged at NTNU (the Norwegian University of Science and Technology) in Trondheim. UW faculty receive travel expenses and continue to receive their salary.

The 80 University of Bergen faculty visiting the UW have spanned a similar range of disciplines.
