The Zuckerman Faculty Scholars program funds leading researchers, and supports the purchase and construction of laboratories and specialized equipment. The program thus provides vital resources to Israeli universities, allowing them to compete with top North American institutions for the most promising candidates.
The program attracts Israeli researchers who have completed postdoctoral STEM studies in the US and Canada to accept faculty positions at research universities in Israel.
Since establishing the Zuckerman Faculty Scholars Program in 2016, the Zuckerman Institute has supported the return of 37 scientists to Israel and funded new state-of-the-art labs at seven Israeli universities: Bar-Ilan University, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Haifa University, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, Tel Aviv University, and the Weizmann Institute of Science. Ariel University will be joining the program in 2023.
Zuckerman Faculty Scholars demonstrate leadership in their respective fields with innovative research, groundbreaking scientific papers and outstanding achievements. Read the individual interviews of each of our faculty discussing their research.
