THE ISRAEL INSTITUTE FOR ADVANCED STUDIES at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem (IIAS) invites scholars from Israel and abroad to submit proposals for an individual fellowship at the IIAS for the 2023-2024 academic year. Topics may cover any research area from any discipline and must seek to be innovative, with the potential to impact research in the field. Two or three scholars who will collaborate on the same project should apply individually and state clearly that they wish to work together.
Fellows spend their residency at the IIAS, located at the Edmond J. Safra Givat Ram campus of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The IIAS provides fellows with a nurturing and stimulating academic environment, as well as administrative support. Fellows from abroad receive a generous fellowship and subsidised accommodation.
Our expectation is that the fellow’s residency will result in creative and original research that can be shared with the international research community.
Scholars may be from Israel or abroad and must have a tenured position with an academic research institution. Former fellows may apply for an individual fellowship once 10 years have elapsed from the end of their previous term by the beginning of the academic year of their fellowship. This fellowship is not open to postdoctoral researchers.
Period of Residence
The IIAS academic year runs from September 1 to June 30. Residencies are open for 10 months and 5 months and the proposal should contain the requested period of residency according to the following options:
A 10-month residency beginning September 1
A 5-month residency beginning September 1 or February 7.
Application Deadline and Notification
Applications will open online from September 1 - December 1, 2021 (midnight). In the online form, the applicant is asked to enter the following details:
