Internal Sabbaticals

Just as with an external sabbatical, the main aim of an internal sabbatical is to give a staff member an undisturbed chance to think, write or generate new ideas in a new and inspiring environment that is separated from the normal pressures and obligations of their regular surroundings.

From one unit to another

An internal sabbatical, available for all PhD students and other academic staff, is a short-term exchange (1-2 weeks) from one unit within the department to another. Even though most us know many staff members in other units, few of us have experienced them within research constellations. Nor do we normally have much clue of the main questions they are currently working on or of the intellectual ideas that drive them. Thus, another goal of the internal sabbatical is to promote interactions between researchers that would rarely normally meet, interactions that invariably lead to exciting new ideas – and new collaborations – at the boundaries of different fields. Whether the outcome is the production of a manuscript you never seem to have the time to write, or the creation of an exciting and unexpected research collaboration, a short internal sabbatical can be an incredibly inspiring and personally fulfilling experience.

Be the sabbatee of the month

Our goal is that at least one internal sabbatical occurs somewhere in the department each month. The person (or persons) on sabbatical will then become that month’s sabbatee(s) (e.g. “April’s Sabbatee(s)”), and at the conclusion of the sabbatical Inger Ekström or Jan Olsson will interview the sabbatee(s) for the Biologibloggen to record their experiences.
