Post Doctoral Fellowships for Candidates from India and China

With the support of the planning and Budgeting Committee of the Council for Higher Education, the Hebrew University is offering postdoctoral fellowships to outstanding candidates who are citizens of India and China for the coming academic year 2015/16. The grant will begin October 1, 2015.  Citizens of India and China who completed their PhD at a leading institution outside India and China are also eligible to apply.

The amount of the grant is 100,000 NIS per year and can be awarded for up to three years. 2/3rds of the grant will be funded by the Council for Higher Education, and the remaining 1/3rd will be funded by the faculty member/department/Faculty.

Candidates must be holders of a PhD degree or postdoctoral certificate for whom on the date of publishing of the offer (October 8, 2014) no more than one year has passed since their last academic position (PhD student or postdoctoral fellow).

Candidates who have not yet completed their PhD can also apply. They should provide a letter from their institution stating that they will be able to complete and submit their PhD during the first year of the fellowship. In any event, a candidate who has not been awarded the PhD by the end of the first year of the fellowship will not be allowed to continue his postdoctoral position.
