The policies in this group apply to HHMI Investigators or Freeman Hrabowski Scholars only. The scientists at the Janelia Research Campus are not subject to these policies.

 

Administrative Service, Leadership Role, and Salary Supplementation

This policy describes the types of administrative service, including management and other leadership roles, that HHMI Investigators and Freeman Hrabowski Scholars may hold or perform and explains circumstances under which an HHMI Investigator or Freeman Hrabowski Scholar may receive a salary supplement from their host institution for administrative services provided to the host institution.

Laboratory Head Transfers

This policy describes the circumstances under which HHMI Investigators and Freeman Hrabowski Scholars are eligible to request to transfer from their HHMI host institution to another institution. The policy applies to a transfer from the HHMI host institution at which the HHMI Investigator or Freeman Hrabowski Scholar is initially appointed as well as to all subsequent transfers.

Research at Institutions Other Than the Host Institution

HHMI believes that an HHMI Investigator’s and Freeman Hrabowski Scholar’s scientific program is generally aided by concentration of the HHMI Investigator’s and Freeman Hrabowski Scholar’s research activities in a single location, where these activities can be better managed and are, as a consequence, more effective. Similarly, concentration in a single location benefits an HHMI Investigator’s and Freeman Hrabowski Scholar’s non-research activities, including mentoring students and postdoctoral fellows as well as fulfilling responsibilities to the host institution. Accordingly, HHMI generally prefers that HHMI Investigators and Freeman Hrabowski Scholars conduct their research program at a single host institution.

Sabbatical Leave for HHMI Lab Heads at Host-Based Sites

This policy applies to HHMI Investigators and Freeman Hrabowski Scholars who would like to take sabbatical leave from their host institution. 

Investigator Phase-out and Gift Options

This policy describes support provided to HHMI Investigators at host-based sites during a non-renewable phase-out period. In addition, it sets forth options for HHMI Investigators to receive a gift of research funding to their host institution at the end of an HHMI appointment.

Lab Closure Policy After an HHMI Laboratory Head’s Death, Permanent Incapacitation, or Involuntary Separation

This policy describes support HHMI provides the laboratories of HHMI Investigators or Freeman Hrabowski Scholars after an HHMI Laboratory Head’s death, permanent incapacitation, or involuntary separation from HHMI and the host institution with less than 30 days' notice. 

HHMI Support After an HHMI Laboratory Head’s Resignation

This policy describes support HHMI provides the laboratories of HHMI Investigators or Freeman Hrabowski Scholars after the Investigator or Scholar resigns from HHMI.
