Postdoctoral Fellows


International Postdoctoral Fellows are entitled to a maximum of 12 months staying in housing belonging to in the Weizmann Institute.  Please note that if you stayed in WIS housing as a student, this will impact your eligibility for housing as a Postdoctoral Fellow.

At the moment, demand is much greater than available apartments, therefore you should request that your department place a request for housing at the earliest opportunity.

Apartments are allocated based on availability and we operate a waiting list.  Couples where both partners are Postdoctoral Fellows at the Institute will receive priority.  Postdoctoral Fellows cannot choose the complex they would like to live in.

Apartments are self-catering, and furnished.  We do not provide personal kitchen equipment or bedding supplies - we do however, offer kits for both, for sale, at cost price.  As most fellows are in Israel for longer than 12 months, you will most likely need to purchase these items when renting off campus.

We also have peer Residence Advisors who assist with community building events located in 2 locations and covering all of our housing.
