Fellowships to USA, Canada, and International scholars and scientists in all fields of study to work as faculty at an Israeli IHE. Fellowships will offer top researchers the chance to be employed during the 2020/21 academic year and will enable the universities to offer them their first full-time academic appointments as Lecturers, Senior Lecturers, Associate Professors, or other equivalent ranks. Funding is intended to cover salary and research-related expenses over a three-year period.

Applications must be submitted by one of the following academic institutions:

  • Bar-Ilan University
  • Ben-Gurion University
  • The Hebrew University of Jerusalem
  • Technion-Israel Institute of Technology
  • Tel Aviv University
  • University of Haifa
  • Weizmann Institute of Science

In addition to salary, the Azrieli Faculty Fellow will receive a research grant. The research grant may be used for equipment and general research needs. The Azrieli research grant is not meant to replace start-up funds which are provided by the university for newly-appointed faculty positions. The university is expected to provide all the necessary conditions for carrying out research.

Candidates are assessed on their potential to make cutting-edge contributions to their respective fields. Aspects of personal merit and leadership abilities are also taken into consideration.

2. Candidates may be submitted for consideration no later than seven years after receipt of their PhD diploma. Interruptions or leaves of absence during this period, such as parental leave, medical leave, or military service, will be taken into consideration.

The faculty appointment of the candidate may start as early as June 2020 and no later than the beginning of the second semester of the academic year 2020–2021.

If the Fellow starts late or is on an unpaid vacation period, or sabbatical for a portion of the fellowship period, s/he will not be eligible for the fellowship during this period.
