The Joint Berlin-Jerusalem Post-Doctoral Fellowship Program aims to promote research cooperation as a career track to leverage synergies between Freie Universität Berlin and The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The two universities establish a joint Post-Doctoral Fellowship scheme with competitively awarded grants to foster the career development of young researchers. The goal of this initiative is to pool resources and attract highly promising postdoctoral researchers to the combined strengths of two renowned research universities working in partnership. The Joint Post-Doctoral Fellowship aims to empower PostDocs for their next career step at a leading international research university.
Each fellowship is to be awarded for 24 months, starting on October 1, 2019, and consists of two phases:
Phase 1: 12 months of research at Freie Universität Berlin;
Phase 2: 12 months of research at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem
(or vice versa).
A monthly stipend of € 2,000 and a one-time relocation allowance (€ 2,000). The Post-Doctoral Fellows will further be eligible to apply for travel funding.
The Fellowship is open to highly qualified researchers of all nationalities who received their Ph.D. no more than three years prior to the deadline of this call.
The suggested fellowship proposal may involve all disciplines, thematic or subject areas that exist at both universities or are complementary.
Explicit endorsement by potential host supervisors at Freie Universität Berlin and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
