Report on the Fulfilment of the Unified Contract’s Term
HSE University’s faculty members are expected to be engaged in the three following types of work: teaching, research (or any substitutes thereof) and organizational/administrative work, each of which forms an integral part of their academic activities.
Teaching includes in-class and out-of-class interactions with students, as well as the teaching and learning support activities.
Research shall be performed by faculty members depending on their chosen professional trajectory and will be reflected in outcomes, which can be differentiated depending on said trajectory. Thus, the research work of faculty members engaged in an academic professional trajectory includes basic and applied research with outcomes provided in the form of scientific publications. The research work of faculty members engaged in a teaching and methodological trajectory, in turn, can be replaced with the teaching and methodological pursuits with outcomes which, among other things, may include recorded online courses and online lectures on educational platforms, publications of textbooks and teaching aids, proprietary teaching materials used beyond the scope of their own discipline, control and measurement materials, casebooks, exercises, and tests used beyond the scope of their own discipline, development, methodological and technical support for successful online courses and online programmes.
Research activities carried out by faculty members pursuing the practice-oriented professional trajectory can be replaced with practice-oriented work with outcomes, which, among other things, may include registered patents and intellectual property rights (bearing in mind the patents for inventions, patents (certificates) for useful models, patents for industrial designs, selection patents, certificates for software programs, databases, and/or topologies of integrated circuits, registered in the prescribed manner), any consulting agreements with external non-academic organizations or individuals, confirmed regular participation in HSE University’s applied projects that are funded by external sources, with non-academic organizations, and/or other project activities confirmed by documentary evidence.
Organizational/administrative work is comprised of participating in the work of HSE University’s collegiate governing bodies and fulfilling organizational duties related to the University’s ongoing activities, improving the conditions for such activities, maintaining and boosting the University’s reputation, as well as other useful activities carried out in the interests of HSE University. In addition to the work directly related to HSE University’s operations, organizational work may include participation in external collegiate bodies related to the University’s institutional representation and carried out on behalf of its administration and subdivision heads, expert, analytical and educational activities carried out in the University’s interests, as well as other useful activities in the University’s interests completed on a free-of-charge basis.
In addition to the respective package of competition documents, all HSE University’s faculty members involved in the competitive selection process (with the exception of faculty members hired less than three months before the competitive selection announcement; researchers from among professors and associate professors, as well as specialists hired via international recruitment procedures; faculty members on maternity leave, parental or childcare leave, or those who returned from their maternity leave less than three months prior; faculty members of the Military Training Center) shall submit an electronic report on the execution of the terms of their unified contracts for the 2020-2021 academic year after an assessment is made by their subdivision head.
