Guest Chairs/Professors

Although, academic collaborations build connection of academics with different departments, sometimes it is more helpful to have guest chairs for a better official linkage. In addition, the guest chair/professors can be alternatively treated as adjunct professors for providing a better support for the department.

The purpose of guest chairs/professors is to enhance institutional linkage, and no financial interest is involved.


Jimma University is ready to offer a limited number of guest chair position to outstanding international professors in various academic disciplines. The process is straightforward with minimized bureaucracy.
