Research Team Project Competition

From September 5 through October 2, 2018, applications will be received for the Research Team Project Competition.

The Research Team Project Competition (formerly known as Teacher-Student Team Research Project Competition) is a competition of Research and Study Groups (RSG), which are research teams that includes undergraduate, Master’s, and doctoral students, young lecturers and/or research fellows who are supervised by an experienced scholar.

An RSG can be supervised by an HSE lecturer and/or research fellow who holds a Doctor of Science, Candidate of Science, or PhD and has some research experience, including publications, in the area close to the topic of the suggested research project. The supervisor should also have some experience in academic supervision over undergraduate/Master’s/doctoral students at HSE, as well as experience conducting research seminars, specialized courses, or workshops.

An RSG may include:

  • full-time and part-time instructors and researchers at HSE and its regional campuses who hold a Doctor of Science degree, Candidate’s degree or a PhD;
  • full-time employees of HSE and its branches who have a Doctor of Science degree, Candidate’s degree or a PhD and at the same time are employed part-time as either an instructor or a researcher for 0.5 of full-time pay;
  • young full-time instructors and researchers at HSE and its branches;
  • full-time and part-time doctoral students at HSE and its branches;
  • undergraduate and graduate students at HSE and its branches;
  • other people who are instrumental to the project and whose participation in the project has been approved by the Academic Fund Council or the Council Board of the Academic Fund.

An RSG must include HSE undergraduate, Master’s or doctoral students. In addition to the supervisor, the RSG may include no more than three ‘adult’ members who are lecturers/research fellows. The RSG must include at least five students.
