Visiting Professorships provide NIS 10,000 (per month), or NIS 9,000 for an Associate Professor.
Visiting Professorships may take place during the academic year of October 1st, 2018 to September 30th, 2019.
Visiting Professorships are 2 to 4 months in length.
You must be a Full or an Associate professor.
Visiting Professorships are only awarded to candidates who apply from Universities outside of Israel.
Visiting Professors who have been awarded a Fellowship for 2016-17 may reapply for another providing at least 3 academic years have elapsed between applications. In other words, a Visiting Professor, who has been awarded a Fellowship for 2016-17, may apply again for the year 2020-21.
An academic sponsor does not simply agree to passively supervise your research from time to time while you are at the Hebrew University. This program expects your sponsor to actively support your research proposal because it is of a nature that is closely connected to and compliments his/her own particular expertise, and opens up new areas of study which he/she would be interested to pursue. Therefore, the enthusiasm he/she can show in the letter of support to actively collaborate with you on your proposed research will indicate to the Academic Committee the importance he/she attaches to your proposed visit.
A sponsor must have the rank of Lecturer (or above) and he/she must be on the Regular Academic Track at the Hebrew University. An Emeritus Professor may be a co-sponsor but not the main sponsor.
You may have more than one sponsor who is willing to support your application from the same Faculty/Department. If your area of research is inter-disciplinary, you must have at least one sponsor from each Faculty/Department. However, in any case, you may only submit ONE application and you will have to decide which Faculty/Department is your "Major" and channel your application through that Faculty/Department.
Each sponsor is allowed only one candidate for each of the two different Fellowship levels. In other words the same sponsor may support one Visiting Professor and one Post-Doctoral Researcher in any one academic year. Please check that your sponsor is not supporting any other candidate at your level. However if a candidate has been awarded an extension of an extra year to his Fellowship, that same sponsor may support a new candidate in the year of the extension.
Sponsors in the Faculties of Science, Medicine, Dentistry and Agriculture will be expected to cover 20% of the total cost of the Fellowship for Visiting Professors.
Prospective candidates must establish contact with the relevant Faculty or Department at the Hebrew University, and ensure that there is a Faculty member willing to sponsor the application. An application will not be processed without a sponsor.
The deadline to apply for the upcoming academic year is November 30th, 2017.
