Minority Outreach Programs Overview | Summer Internships | Faculty Sabbaticals

Faculty Sabbaticals

Sabbatical positions are available for faculty from undergraduate teaching institutions enrolling significant numbers of economically disadvantaged or underrepresented minority students. The sabbaticals will typically last three months and have a flexible start date. Financial support is available to cover faculty salary, research expenses and travel costs.

The goals of the Faculty Sabbatical program are to introduce faculty from community colleges and academic institutions with economically disadvantaged students and underrepresented minorities to the emerging field of systems biology, by:

  • facilitating the introduction of new course materials at their home institutions; and
  • developing research collaborations between visiting faculty and MIT investigators that could lead to independent research programs at their home institutions.

Due to Federal funding requirements, sabbaticals may only be offered to faculty with US Citizenship or proof of permanent residency.
