The Hebrew University of Jerusalem – The Lady Davis Fellowship Trust
Fellowships to USA, Canada, and International university professors to conduct research, teach courses, lead seminars, and establish academic connections with faculty members at a university in Israel. The exact breakdown of activities funded by the fellowship will be mutually agreed upon by the professor and the academic sponsor.
The Lady Davis Fellowship Trust was established 46 years ago in 1973 to provide an opportunity for Visiting Professors, Post-Doctoral Researchers and Doctoral Students from abroad, regardless of nationality, gender or field of scholarship to teach, study and participate in research in Israel at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and at the Technion Institute of Technology in Haifa. It is one of the most distinguished and sought after fellowship programs in the world. In addition, the Lady Davis Fellowship Trust has greatly enriched the Hebrew University and the Technion by constantly introducing exceptional talent into their academic environment and by linking these two institutions, through human bridges, with the world network of science and scholarship.
Visiting Professors are typically expected to teach. The Academic Committee will favorably view an application that includes an intention to teach courses or participate in or lead seminars. Visiting Professors also engage in research with their hosts or interact with other Faculty members. The precise mix of activities will be mutually decided upon by the Visitor and his/her academic sponsor.
The Fellowships are intended not only to promote an exchange of ideas and information but also to cement personal relationships that will provide the basis for an ongoing academic liaison in the future.
