The Mortimer B. Zuckerman Postdoctoral Scholars Program attracts high-achieving postdoctoral scholars from premier U.S. universities to do research at one of four Israeli universities. These Scholars are expected to accept faculty positions at top universities in North America upon the completion of their research. The program fosters a network of academic collaboration and goodwill that benefits U.S.-Israeli scientific cooperation.
Five postdoctoral scholarships will be given out for each participating university. Candidates are assessed based on their academic and research achievements in addition to personal merit and leadership qualities.
