Faculty Mini-Sabbatical Program


Call for Summer 2024 call is now open
Deadline: January 15, 2024


Our Faculty Mini-Sabbatical Program is designed to bring top academic talent from colleges and universities across the U.S. to the Laboratory for one- to three-month visits to exchange knowledge and build partnerships. Faculty will be able to experience Laboratory resources and capabilities, exchange knowledge and advance their skills. LLNL staff scientists get the opportunity to learn from leading scientists from around the country on their research programs. There are two application periods throughout the year; one for summer and one for fall through spring. The Summer call opens in mid-November and the Fall/Spring opens in late-April.

Funded by the Academic Engagement Office, faculty will be hired full-time for 1 to 3 months and will receive travel costs and a salary of $14,500/month. The faculty member is expected to be onsite during their sabbatical.

You must be a faculty member at a university to apply to the Faculty Mini-Sabbatical Program. Here’s how to apply:
