Long-Term Travel Grants for Staff Scientists

Posted: 30.12.2021

From the Research Grants & Projects Office:

Please notice the new funding opportunity that will be available from now on for long-term travel grants for staff scientists at the institute.

Please find the link to the RGP webpage for the call: 

This funding grant comes from the belief that staff scientists - either in research groups or in the core facilities – are essential for the advancement of science and for the cutting-edge research done at the Weizmann Institute of Science. To maintain your expertise and leading role it is highly important that you have opportunities to visit international labs. This is important not only for your career development but also for your home labs/units and for the Weizmann Institute as a whole. 

This grant is created to enable you to travel abroad for more extensive periods of time (up to 3 months) to explore collaborations and acquire expertise in cutting edge technologies.

Thanks to the Research Grants and Projects Office, we now have a list of grants that allow staff scientists to be included as a co-PI. This list is available here and on the "Can a Staff Scientist submit a grant proposal?" FAQ page.

Researchers who are listed as PI or co-PIs on a research grant is entitled to a supplement to their salary. Note that Staff Scientists, per Weizmann regulations, may only be listed as co-PIs on the grant, and that not all grants permit more than one PI.

  • Research Supplement A (תוספת מחקר א) is an addition to one’s salary paid from a research grant that allows for such, up to 50% of the scientist’s salary.
  • Research Supplement B (תוספת מחקר ב) is an addition paid by the Weizmann Institute to a PI or co-PI on a grant that does not allow for a Research Supplement A. The supplement may not exceed 25% of the scientist’s salary and the amount, which is based on the value of the grant, is divided amongst all the PIs and co-PIs listed on the grant; two or more such grants allows the scientist to an addition 5% supplement.
  • The total supplement allowed (A+B) shall not exceed 55% of the salary.
  • It should be noted that with regards to ISF grants, assistant staff scientists can only be listed as team members while the three higher ranks can only be co-PIs (i.e., not budgeted as a team member).
