Tel Aviv University regularly hosts Post-Doctoral fellows. The Faculty of Exact Sciences invites outstanding post-doctoral researchers from around the world to apply to the TAU Faculty's Post-Doctoral Fellowship Programs.

The aim of the fellowship is to advance the fellow and to train him/her as a researcher either in or out of academia.

 

To start the Post-Doc application process, please consult the Faculty Member pages in the School of Mathematical Sciences, the School of Computer Science, the School of Physics & Astronomy, the School of Chemistry & the Departmet of Geosciences. These lists share the topics and interests of each faculty member and their contact information. 

 

Detailed information, regulations, guidelines and registration to the programs, can be found in the Tel Aviv University's Post Doctoral web site.
