Tuesday, February 07, 2017 9:50:00 AM

American Friends of Tel Aviv University has announced a call for applications for the Zuckerman Postdoctoral Scholars Program, an initiative designed to support future generations of leaders in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in the US and Israel and foster greater research collaboration between the two countries.

The program enables the highest achieving postdoctoral researchers from the US to collaborate with leading scientists at Israel's top research institutions: Tel Aviv University, Hebrew University, Technion and the Weizmann Institute.

"Tel Aviv University looks forward to welcoming the next cohort of post-doctoral students," said Prof. Joseph Klafter, President of TAU. "It is an honor to partner in this collaborative effort as we cultivate the next generation of STEM leaders. The students that participate in the program are exposed to some of the best resources and scientific leaders, and we look forward to seeing the groundbreaking work that comes from this year's scholars."

Upon completion of their research, Zuckerman postdocs have the opportunity to accept faculty positions at top American universities, weaving a network of academic collaboration and goodwill that will greatly benefit US-Israeli scientific cooperation.

Candidates for the Zuckerman STEM Leadership Program are selected based on their academic and research achievements, as well as personal merit and leadership qualities. Four postdoctoral scholarships will be awarded per participating university for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Submissions are due by March 1, 2017. For guidelines and application information, click here.

The first cohort of 14 Zuckerman Scholars began with the 2016–2017 academic year. By exposing American post-doctoral researchers to Israel's cutting-edge research culture, the program is expected to raise a generation of academic, scientific and industry leaders infused with a unique spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation.
