Research centers for young scholars, or Labs, are structural units within HSE, research institutes, and departments. They include research faculty, lecturers and young researchers (undergraduate and PhD students), all of whom work in a specific field. The first center of this kind was created at HSE in 2005. Today, there are 24 such centers. They work in a wide circle of disciplines: economics, finance, law, IT, psychology, sociology, political science, etc.
WHAT LABS ARE CREATED FOR:
To provide opportunities for talented academia- oriented youth to get involved into research at university level at the earliest age.
To integrate research results into educational process.
Young researchers gain experience with largescale research projects; PhD and undergraduate students get more freedom and real responsibility at the same time. Working at a Lab helps them write a serious thesis, term paper, or dissertation. Lab employees not just do their research but teach students too: they work at the university’s departments, prepare educational materials,and teach and give advice to their young colleagues too. This way, the colleagues manage to develop and apply their professional skills both as students and as researchers.
ACADEMIC GROWTH POINTS IN LABS LABS OFFER VARIOUS TYPES OF WORK DURING THE YEAR:
- Research seminars that are now considered to be a kind of a «trademark» of HSE Labs. That’s what most of their work is about. Lab members share preliminary results of their work, present final results, discuss future publications, organize discussions. The seminars arranged jointly by several Labs have become very popular.
- Meeting invited experts – both practitioners and fellow researchers from other universities and organizations. Lab members get a chance to share the results of their research and to learn more about applied areas.
- Scientific publications are one of the main criteria for evaluating Lab efficiency. Lab members work a lot to prepare and write scientific papers presenting the results of their research. This is how a high level of academic activity is maintained and how researchers get more chances to receive academic premiums (additional motivating bonuses). Anyone can take part in the events organized by research centers for young scholars, and attending such seminars and meetings often becomes the first step to working there. LABS MISSION Research centers for young scholars open new development opportunities both for their employees and the university.
BY OPENING RESEARCH CENTERS FOR YOUNG SCHOLARS:
- the conditions to encourage lecturers and employees to carry out their research,
- the specialized areas of research (through departmental Labs), as well as fundamental and interdisciplinary research (through universitylevel Labs);
- the academic career institution.
LECTURERS AND LAB RESEARCHERS CAN:
- skip the gap between teaching and research,
- move to a new professional level in research: from the personal to the structural level,
- share their experiences with their younger colleagues and form promising research groups in their spheres of interest.
UNDERGRADUATE AND PHD STUDENTS WHO AFFILIATE WITH LABS:
- acquire research competences,
- get an opportunity to engage into full-scale research at an early stage,
- work under the supervision of the university’s leading researchers.
