Humanities (IASH)
, the PBC Fellowship Program, the Zuckerman Postdoctoral Scholars
, and other external sources. Positions are initially for two years with an option for
renewal, subject to funding availability.

Bar-Ilan University is located in a suburb of Tel Aviv in central Israel. Tel Aviv University, the
Weizmann Institute of Science, and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem are all within easy
reach, creating a large and active local mathematical community. It is common for
mathematicians from Israel's many universities to organize joint seminars, conferences, and
reading groups.

Applications can be submitted online and should include:

  • Cover letter
  • Name(s) of prospective host(s)
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Research statement
  • 3 letters of recommendation

Review of applications will begin December 15, 2020 and continue until positions are filled.
