Fulbright Israel Post-Doctoral Fellowships

Fulbright Israel Post-Doctoral Fellowships for
American Researchers in All Academic Disciplines
2015/2016 – 2016/2017

The United States-Israel Educational Foundation (USIEF), the Fulbright commission for Israel, plans to offer 8 fellowships to American post-doctoral researchers in support of work to be carried out at Israeli universities during the course of the 2015/2016-2016/2017 academic years.

The US Post-Doctoral Fellowship Program is open to candidates in all academic disciplines.

Holders of tenure track positions are not eligible to apply. Individuals who have already begun research activities in Israel prior to the application date are not eligible.

Program grants total $40,000, $20,000 per academic year.

Program Fellows must be accepted as post-doctoral researchers by Israeli host institutions, which agree to provide them with a standard post-doctoral grant, which they will receive in addition to their Fulbright Fellowship. Thus, the total financial support received by Program Fellows is likely to be in the range of at least $35,000-$40,000 per year.

Applications for 2015/2016-2016/2017 Fulbright Post-Doctoral Fellowships must be submitted to the Council for International Exchange of Scholars by August 1, 2014.

The full Program announcement is available at http://fulbright.org.il/uspostdoc.

Potential candidates may contact Ms. Judy Stavsky, Deputy Director, USIEF (jstavsky@fulbright.org.il; +972-3-517-2392) for advice and assistance.
