Faculty Research Leave - Sabbatical Leave

About the Program

College and university faculty members may spend their sabbatical leave at Argonne. Appointments are normally for an academic or calendar year.

The Faculty Research Leave Appointment (FRLA) Program is intended to provide mutual benefits to faculty members and the Laboratory. In addition to bringing about fruitful research activity, it provides Argonne scientists, engineers and visiting faculty opportunities to develop a strengthened rapport and to catalyze the formation of continuing research partnerships and collaborations.

Interactions of faculty with students in the research programs is strongly encouraged. This can take the form of research collaboration, as well as more conventional interactions such as seminars and teaching. Also, when funding is available, faculty can involve qualified students from their home campus in their Argonne research program.

Eligibility

To be eligible for an appointment, a faculty member must be in receipt of a sabbatical-leave award (or other appropriate award) from his/her university, have the approval of the appropriate university administrator to accept the Argonne appointment, and have demonstrated accomplishment in an area of research and development relevant to research at Argonne. Applicants must be full-time faculty members of an accredited college or university.

Financial Assistance

During the FRLA, the faculty member remains on the payroll and under the benefits program of the university. Typically, Argonne reimburses the university for 50 percent of salary and fringe benefits for the academic year.
