Interview on Post-Doctoral program w/Professor Martin Gilman: Moscow – an Unlikely but Advantageous place to work
HSE’s current round of International Recruitment
HSE is nearing the completion of an ambitious round of recruitment from the international job market. The university aims to attract top-level scholars with PhDs from recognized international research universities who will produce world-class research, provide some limited teaching, and serve as an example to other academic staff and students of the highest standards of excellence.
Within the past five years, HSE has been systematically recruiting fulltime, tenure-track academic staff from the international market, starting in economics. A little over two years ago, the first academics under international contracts began in management and in sociology, and last year in political science. In all, by the beginning of this 2012/13 academic year, HSE has 34 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. HSE also offers its internationally-recruited staff generous research support including travel to help overcome the relative isolation of working from Moscow.
For the 2013/14 academic year, HSE has been actively recruiting in twelve different disciplines as evidenced by the vacancy notices posted on this website. In management and economics, the final flyouts and interviews have been completed and offers made. For sociology, political science, international relations, history, philosophy, psychology, statistics, applied mathematics and information science, and in media and communications, the respective academic screening committees have completed their work, and final flyouts and interviews should soon be completed. We hope to be in contact with the applicants shortly thereafter.
In addition, HSE began an effort to attract post-doctoral researchers last year with three fellows in sociology. A new round of ads for 10-month for post-doctoral fellowships has been expanded to include 21 research centers and laboratories in 7 different faculties of the university (all of these are posted on this website). The second round will be completed in mid-April and we hope to inform the applicants before the end of April.
