Cotutelle with Macquarie University (MU), Sydney, Australia

HUJ students are eligible to apply to participate in a Cotutelle with Macquarie University (MU), in Sydney, Australia.

Under this arrangement, HUJ students would spend a minimum of one year, and up to a maximum of 1.5 years, at MU.  The student receives an annual stipend of $27,000 in Australian dollars (http://www.xe.com/currencyconverter/<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/tBHUCXLW6DiOBBpNt6fqTE?domain=xe.com>), with the possibility of additional funding through teaching.

The student would need to be post-preliminary examination, and in the final years of research, as the degree must be granted within three years of beginning the cotutelle. The student would conduct research with a professor at MU while reporting to their HUJ advisor.

The student would submit the dissertation at both universities. The dissertation would have a three member review at MU and also an oral defense at HUJ with the usual committee requirements.  The MU advisor would be part of the UIC committee.  The student would receive two PhD degrees, one from UIC and one from MU, and the degrees may be named differently.

It is important that the HUJ and MU advisors have discussed and agreed to the research to be conducted.  Advisors do not need to directly collaborate but should communicate during the cotutelle and through the final dissertation defense. The MU professor does not need to be in the same department as the advisor at HUJ, and, in fact, it may be that the PhD received at MU is in a different department then the PhD received from HUJ.

Joint PhD with the University of Melbourne (UoM), Australia

 

The Hebrew University partnership with University of Melbourne is based on collaborative research. The partnership was initiated in 2008 with the signature of a Memorandum of Understanding and then renewed in 2018, for the fostering of student exchange and research collaborations.  In 2012 a Joint Research Workshop Grants Program was launched, to enable faculty members from both institutions to hold joint workshops with the goal to foster mutual research and grant submissions.

The partnership was expanded in 2019 with the launch of the Jerusalem-Melbourne Joint PhD Program, open to all academic fields. The new program involves doctoral students working together in a research group that is supervised by both Australian and Israeli faculty. Every year, the two universities jointly publish a call for applications for joint research projects, whereby pairs of researchers representing both the University of Melbourne and the Hebrew University together propose research projects for PhD clusters from both institutions. PhD students in the program are enrolled in both institutions and are eligible to receive a PhD recognized by both universities. They must spend at least one year at the University of Melbourne and one year at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

The classes are open to students and researchers anywhere in the world who are interested in acquiring or improving their understanding of Biblical Hebrew, Biblical Aramaic, and Yiddish. Among the program’s offerings are accredited courses for which participants can earn academic credits. All of our online language courses have been developed by top university researchers, linguists, and instructors. These online courses are not designated for regular Hebrew University students.
