At the present time Russian higher school enters highly active phase of transformations defined as structural transition from soviet mono-level model of higher education with strict administrative management methods to entirely different so-called “western model”, the main evaluation criterion of which is the results. As it follows from the logic of higher school transformation for more than recent 20 years, the transformations have covered primarily conceptual and technological components of education, then organization-and-administrative, organization-and-financial ones and at last - the components of social structure. In modern Russia the matter of special importance in the recent years is the problem of reproduction of highly-qualified personnel (candidates and doctors of sciences). Additionally, the capability of Russia even to draw near the developed countries of the world on a technological level, in the foreseeable future, depends to a large extent on the intellectual potential, the reproduction of which is performed by higher school and scientific institutions.

Its authors distinguish definite clusters of teachers according to social and professional capital and social comfort. The paper also reveals interdependence between distinguished groups and their orientation in professional terms, appraises social expectations and satisfaction with professional activity of scientific-pedagogical personnel of the research university.
