Post-doctoral position in Jerusalem/Israel

The Jerusalem Brain Community (JBC) builds upon Hebrew University‘s record of excellence and innovation in its
multidisciplinary approach to brain sciences. The JBC sees great importance in enabling international post-doctoral
researchers to be part of its flourishing research environment and community. JBC post-doctoral Fellowships are
intended to enable the Fellows to devote themselves exclusively to their research with the purpose of reaching
scientific and professional independence which will be required later in their career.

Postdoctoral fellows will receive a competitive stipend for a period of one year, with a possibility of a one year extension.

The stipend will be $22,000 per year and will only be granted if a matching sum will be provided by the fellow's supervisor.

Fellowships will be awarded after a rigorous academic review process by the JBC Academic Committee.

The candidate must be (or has been) a student in an accredited institution of higher education and whose PhD training and post-doctoral projects are in the field of Brain Sciences and will be conducted under the supervision of a JBC member.

The candidate has been granted a PhD no more than 3 years before applying for the Fellowship or has already submitted his doctoral thesis when applying (and will have received approval of the PhD, during the first academic year of post doctoral studies).

Guidelines for applying can be found on the JBC website:
