WeizmannVoices talks to Prof. Lia Addadi, the President’s Advisor for Advancing Women in Science at the Weizmann Institute. She offers an inside look at an extraordinary program that is catapulting women scientists' careers to a new level. But it's much more than that: by making sure that half of Israeli brainpower in the sciences is not lost, the initiative is ensuring the future excellence of Israeli science.
This is a call for nominations to the Weizmann Women & Science Award 2019. This is a biennial award established in 1994 to honor an outstanding woman scientist who has made significant contributions to the scientific community. The objective of the award, which includes a $25,000 to the recipient, is to promote women in science, and to provide a strong role model to motivate and encourage the next generation of young women scientists. The Award is awarded by the Weizmann Institute and the award ceremony takes place at the Weizmann Institute.
We are happy to announce the Women Bridge position for 2018/2019.
This is a one year position, offered by the Weizmann Institute of Science to qualified Israeli women scientists who have to return to Israel prematurely, prior to completing their postdoctoral training abroad. The purpose of the position is to enable the recipient to complete unfinished scientific work, and prepare for successful application to an academic position in Israel. One to two such positions will be given in the academic year 2018/2019.
