Faculty Development Program


One-Year Visiting Appointments at MIT

Due to the immediate need to ramp up teaching capacity at Skoltech, we do not anticipate new arrivals at MIT for the Faculty Development Program until further notice.

Newly-hired Skoltech faculty have a posting at MIT of approximately one year under the auspices of the Initiative's Faculty Development Program (FDP). As part of the FDP, Skoltech faculty will be:

  • Appointed as a visiting faculty or research scientist
  • Resident full-time at MIT

Faculty will be immersed in the MIT community and enjoy opportunities to:

  • Conduct joint research with one or more MIT faculty mentors/hosts
  • Participate in FDP activities and programming while developing skills related to entrepreneurship and innovation (E&I), teaching and learning, research, leadership, and other relevant competencies contributing to their long-term success as Skoltech faculty

MIT faculty play a critical role in supporting the program as principal investigators and mentors.
