Dear H-Grad colleagues,

We are writing to share information about an exciting Postdoctoral Fellowship opportunity in Israel. As home to many prestigious universities and more Nobel Laureates than any other nation in the Middle East, Israel is a top destination for postdoctoral scholars.  Eight awards are available to postdoctoral scholars who seek to pursue research at Israeli universities. The grants, which will commence during the 2018-19 academic year, are open to researchers in all academic disciplines and support programs of work in Israel for up to 20 months.

Eligibility requirements:

  • Candidates must have received their Ph.D. degrees no earlier than April 2015 & no later than June 2018.
  • Holders of tenure track positions are not eligible to apply.
  • Individuals who have already begun postdoctoral research activities in Israel prior to the application date are also not eligible.
  • Applicants must be U.S. citizens

While a letter of invitation from an accredited Israeli institution of higher education is required, we are able to accept letters of invitation after the application deadline. If applicants need assistance identifying suitable host institutions or institutional contacts, they may contact Imri Grinberg at USIEF at Our staff are also happy to answer any questions regarding any of the opportunities listed above or the Fulbright Scholar Program in general. You can schedule a 1-on-1 phone consultation here.

For detailed application guidelines and review criteria, please visit our website. Applicants may also wish to join My Fulbright, a resource center for applicants interested in the program.  The current competition will close on August 1, 2017. Start an application today!
