Research

Sabbatical Leave

A short-term sabbatical is a paid leave for the pursuit of scientific research. During a sabbatical leave, HSE faculty members can work on their research projects in other research and educational institutions.

Who is eligible for a short-term sabbatical?

A short-term sabbatical is granted to employees whose primary place of employment is HSE and who were hired through international recruiting or have a third level academic merit pay.

How long can a short-term sabbatical be?

A short-term sabbatical should not exceed 28 days per calendar year. It can be submitted once or several times annually for periods when the applicant does not have lessons or other classroom-based events. At the discretion of the International Recruitment Committee, a short-term sabbatical may be prolonged to 56 days per calendar year.

How do I apply for a short-term sabbatical?

Two weeks before the planned beginning of a short-term sabbatical leave, please do the following:

  • Fill out an application form and send it to the head of your structural subdivision, who is either the dean of your faculty or the head of your lab. If you have two contracts, then your sabbatical must be approved by both.

  • Upon sending the form, please coordinate the form for reporting research results with the head of your structural subdivision. This is very important moment, as a copy of the report will be required by the accounting department.

How do I report about the results of my short-term sabbatical?

Upon returning from a short-term sabbatical, the results (in the form agreed before the leave) are to be sent to the head of the structural subdivision within two weeks.

How is the short-term sabbatical paid?

The sabbatical is granted with standard salary maintenance and within the timeframes of HSE’s internal regulations. However, in the case the 28-day period has not been used up, the remaining time cannot be transferred to the next calendar year. In addition, remaining time cannot be compensated, preceded by or followed by the basic annual leave.
For more details see Regulations on Granting Short-Term Sabbatical Leaves.
