The Hebrew University has created a culture that values the involvement of dynamic, creative, and dedicated researchers from the international academic community.
There are various funding mechanisms for inviting scholars including Erasmus+
Responsibilities of the Host Department and Faculty
Step One: Official Invitation Letter
Prospective visiting scholars need an official letter of invitation from the Dean of your faculty/school. The letter should detail the nature of the research or teaching that the scholar will conduct, who will supervise or advise the scholar, the dates of the visit and specifically what the department will offer the scholar. It may explain if the department will be able to provide office space, staff assistance, departmental facilities, salary and/ or stipend, the agreed length of stay and dates the scholar will be on campus.
Step Two: Practical Matters
Visitors from India, China, Africa, and various other places will need assistance with obtaining a visa for their visit. If your visitor will be receiving a salary (as opposed to a fellowship or honorarium), you must obtain a work permit and work visa for him/her before his arrival in Israel.
Please see here for more information.
The university has a limited number of apartments available for visiting scholars and professors.
Please check with the International Office for availability
Important: If you are considering inviting a professor or research scholar to the university, please contact the International Office at least 2-6 months in advance.
More Information and Assistance
Faculty members and visiting researchers are encouraged to contact Mr. Yehuda Hersch, the International Researchers Coordinator, for any administrative assistance, non-academic issues and day life matters. Email: email@example.com
Hosting Academic Staff within the framework of the Erasmus+ program:
Academic staff visits in the frameworks of Erasmus+ are normally short-term visits (5-10 days) and guests coming form European countries that do not require special visa arrangements.
Faculty members from Erasmus+ partner institutions may contact HUJI academic staff if they are interested in an Erasmus Teaching Visit at HUJI.
As these partner agreements are an essential aspect of the university’s internationalization efforts, we very much encourage you to support visit requests. These visits are usually very fruitful in terms of the development of a significant teaching and research collaboration.
Important to note:
- Staff members are required to teach 8 hours weekly, which can take various formats (seminars, public lectures, mini-courses, one-on-one supervision, etc).
- These visits are all funded by the Erasmus+ Program.
