New post-doctoral scholarships

Starting October of 2018 Tel Aviv University will award post-doctoral scholarships to young researchers.

22 January 2018

Tel Aviv University offers Post-Doctoral scholarships for one year from October 2018 for new Post-Docs who are at the beginning of their academic career.


The amount of the scholarship per year is about NIS 68,000. Half of the scholarship will be financed by the advisor and half by the university or by the Pikovsky Valazzi Fund.


The scholarship will be granted for one year.


University Scholarships:

The university will grant 20 scholarships on the basis of matching for new Post-Docs. Ten out of the 20 scholarships will be granted to Post-Docs from leading universities abroad.


Pikovsky Valazzi Scholarship:

The Pikovsky Valazzi fund will grant one scholarship on the basis of matching for new Post-Docs.

The scholarship will be offered for research in the fields of applied electronics, biotechnology, and applied physics, which should be suitable for application and use in science based industries.


The research will be conducted during a period of one year, under the supervision of a senior lecturer of TAU's academic staff. The fellow will not be considered a university employee, and will leave the research group at the end of the fellowship (an extention of the fellowship for an additional period will be possible only if funded by the supervisor).
