Combined Weizmann – Abroad Postdoctoral Program for Advancing Women in Science

The Feinberg Graduate School of the Weizmann Institute of Science (WIS) is pleased to announce a new call for this postdoctoral fellowships program, combining research in a Weizmann Institute laboratory with a leading laboratory in another country. The program is designed to encourage progress towards an academic career in Israel, by offering opportunities for international research experience to excellent female PhD graduates who are unable to relocate for a conventional postdoc abroad. Please note that the program now offers full fellowships to the awardees, together with an enhanced travel budget. The hosting supervisors are expected to provide mentorship in projects that are initiated by the candidates, and aimed at their development as independent scientists.

The program will allow maximal flexibility in the division of the candidate’s time between the two host laboratories, and successful fellows will be free to modify their research plans and time commitments to each of the host laboratories according to the evolving needs of the project. Fellowships will be awarded on a competitive basis, and academic excellence will be the overriding consideration in choice of awardees.
