Tenure Track Recruitment 2022

Event ended

National Research University Higher School of Economics (HSE University) is ready to announce the open call for tenure track positions starting in 2022/2023 academic year!

The Higher School of Economics is a young, dynamic and fast-growing Russian research university. Over the past twenty years, HSE University has become a leader in Russian education and has been recognized internationally.

HSE University was the first state-run university in Russia to begin recruiting on the international academic market. We proceed from the understanding that the university, which responsibly approaches the training of new professionals, should select as teachers people who have real experience, as well as basic and applied knowledge.  Committed to high-quality research, HSE University now has more than 100 research institutes and centres, and more than 30 international research laboratories collaborating with eminent professors from all over the world.

The general requirements for the tenure track positions are the following:

  • Candidates must hold a recent PhD degree that is awarded within the previous 5 years or received before starting work at HSE University in one of the relevant disciplines by an international research university and have been assessed by external reviewers as having  a potential to pursue research that is publishable in the top peer-reviewed journals;
  • Teaching experience at leading foreign universities is desirable;
  • Knowledge of Russian is not required as research and teaching are both conducted in English. Therefore, fluent English is an obligatory requirement.

The hosting departments might have additional criteria.



Tenure-track positions are only available on a full-time, residential basis.

Generally appointments are made for an initial three-year period, and upon successful completion of an interim review, contracts are normally extended for a further three years until the tenure review. The purpose of the review is to provide a tenure-track international hire an opportunity to evaluate his or her activities throughout the previous period and suggest areas for improvement to ensure a possibility of a successful tenure review. All individual employment conditions will be reflected in the offer letter.

HSE University provides excellent opportunities for international faculty. The university offers a competitive salary, health insurance, travel support, research assistance and other benefits. Since the heavy emphasis is placed on the high quality research, the teaching load of newly hired faculty is low. You can learn more about international specialists' life on the International Faculty Support page.



The application process is been done online.

The open tenure track positions in HSE University are posted on the website. Within the timeframe indicated in the employment advertisement, the applicant should provide a CV, a statement of research interest and a recent research paper through an open call  via online application form.
