After a successful pilot year of our newly expanded postdoctoral fellowship track, we are embarking on our second year of bringing 24 outstanding postdoctoral candidates across Europe and Canada to Israel.
Along with funding, our program offers unique opportunities for interdisciplinary and cross-cultural exchange, leadership training, community engagement, professional mentorship and a welcoming staff dedicated to the wellbeing of all Fellows. Furthermore, Fellows on our postdoctoral track join a growing network of outstanding early career scientists and scholars.
Deadline for proposals

Ideal candidates will have an excellent academic track record and the potential to perform groundbreaking research, alongside an intellectual curiosity that transcends their field of study. They will possess a character that facilitates scientific and societal leadership, promoting change.
