Excellence Fellowship Program for International Postdoctoral Researchers

The Reception for International Postdoctoral Researchers in the Academy’s Science Garden, June 2022 
 
 
The Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities established a prestigious program in 2018 to bring outstanding post-docs from around the world to Israel's research universities. The Israel Young Academy led by Prof. Yonina Eldar, suggested this as a solution to the need to strengthen research in Israel.
 
The program's purpose is to attract young outstanding scholars from around the world to come to Israel and integrate into and strengthen research and make personal and professional contacts with Israeli researchers, ultimately leading to future research collaboration.
 
The awarding committee, headed by Academy Member Prof. Moti Segev, was appointed to accomplish this objective. The committee is comprised of Academy Members and faculty from a wide range of disciplines of the sciences and humanities from a variety of Israeli universities, and includes a prominent scientist from abroad. The awardees are chosen solely based on their excellence in research.
 
This year the program was expanded due to a new partnership between the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities and the Council for Higher Education (CHE). It was decided to grant fellowships in all fields of knowledge including the humanities and social sciences.
 
The fellowships are for a period of two years for the amount of 160,000 NIS (~$50,000) a year.
 
This fellowship program is no longer open for applications.
