HSE’s round of International Recruitment
HSE has embarked on a new and ambitious round of recruitment from the international job market. The university aims to attract world-class scholars with PhDs from recognized international research universities who will produce original research as contributions to their respective disciplines, provide some limited teaching, and serve as an example to other academic staff and students of the highest standards of academic excellence.
Within the past seven years, HSE has been systematically and increasingly recruiting fulltime, tenure-track academic staff from the international market, starting in economics. It then starting recruiting academics under international contracts in management and in sociology, and then expended to political science, and last year to history, international relations, media communications, philosophy, psychology, and statistics. In all, by the beginning of this 2013/14 academic year, HSE has 45 tenure-track staff under international contracts.
These contracts, in contrast to faculty hired locally with foreign PhDs or Russian degrees, not only conform to international norms but emphasize the pursuit of world-class research since teaching loads are kept purposefully low. Since tenure-track staff are on a standard “publish or perish” type of contract, HSE offers its internationally-recruited staff generous research support including travel to help overcome the relative isolation of working from Moscow.
For the next 2014/15 academic year, HSE is now actively recruiting in twelve different disciplines as evidenced by the vacancy notices posted on this website.
In addition, HSE began an effort to attract post-doctoral researchers two years ago with three fellows in sociology. For the current academic year, HSE has hired 9 post-doctoral fellows attached to 6 different research laboratories and centers under 10-month contracts. Vacancies for post-doctoral fellowships available in the 2014/15 academic year will be posted once the tenure-track deadlines are over in most disciplines by about mid-December 2013.
