Educational Mission Statement

The faculty of physics offers Ph.D. and M. Sc. degrees in all major areas of research in Physics. Our students, postdocs, and visitors enjoy a genuine international atmosphere, with all our lectures, research seminars, and colloquia conducted in English. We aspire to educate the next generation of leading scientists and innovators in Physics, both in academia and in high-tech. We believe in achieving this goal by setting high standards to our students, while at the same time providing them with the top-notch learning and research environment needed to reach these standards, and to allow each student to reach her or his full personal potential.

We make a special effort to assure that the students and the postdocs are an essential part of the faculty. Their offices are mixed with the offices of the senior faculty members, who are readily available for scientific discussions and research in an environment with minimal bureaucracy. Once accepted, students are provided with a stipend and help in housing, which facilitate total concentration on studies and research.

For any further questions, please write to or contact the head of the Physics Board of Studies,
Professor Gilad Perez
or at 08-934-2561
Further information as well as application forms can be found at the Feinberg graduate school website.

Information for Post-doctoral fellows

The faculty of Physics at the Weizmann Institute of Science hosts a few dozens of post-doctoral fellows  in all major fields of Physics. Most of our post-doctoral fellows are non-Israelis, coming to the Weizmann Institute for add period of two to three years. Many of them then proceed to positions in academia in other countries.

A small number of 5 year positions is also available, as are the funding opportunities from the European unions such as Marie Curie fellowships.

Ph.D. graduates, or current post-doctoral fellows elsewhere, who are interested in a post-doctor- al fellowship at the Weizmann Institute are requested to contact the scientist(s) with whom they would like to work. Details on Fellowships and other conditions can be found at the Feinberg school website.
