OBJECTIVES: The Lady Davis Trust offers professorships for teaching and research on the professorial level, to be conducted at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Professors are typically expected to teach courses, participate in or lead seminars, 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 Hebrew University of Jerusalem lists the following departments as possible sponsors: Faculty of Humanities; Faculty of Social Sciences; School of Social Work; School of Business Administration; Faculty of Law; Faculty of Sciences; Faculty of Medicine; Faculty of Dentistry; School of Pharmacy; Faculty of Agriculture; and School of Veterinary Science.
Eligible applicants must be a full or an associate professor. As a general rule, Visiting Professorships are awarded to candidates who apply from Universities outside of Israel. Visiting Professors who have been awarded a Fellowship may reapply for another providing at least 3 academic years have elapsed between applications.
Appointments are for two to four months. Monthly stipends are
US$2,650 for a full professor, and US$2,250 for an associate professor. The Trust will pay for a roundtrip flight from the fellow’s country of origin to Israel and back again. Half of the medical insurance costs may be provided, if purchased and paid for in Israel.
