  • About

    The Nirit and Michael Shaoul Fund for Visiting Scholars and Fellows provides support for inviting eminent experts in a variety of academic fields, from the US, Canada and Europe. These visitors become Nirit & Michael Shaoul Fellows of the IAS during their stay. The Fellows are selected from a list of candidates, which is submitted by TAU faculty members. These candidates should be renowned scholars who have reached leadership positions and outstanding achievements in their academic disciplines.

     

    Candidates are selected, by the IAS board members, on the basis of prominence in innovative and essential fields in scientific and academic development, while special priority is given to those areas in which collaboration between an IAS visitor and an existing research group at the University will be most beneficial.

     

    Nirit & Michael Shaoul Fellows can be invited for a period of either 1-2 weeks or 1-3 months and are expected to deliver a few lectures during their visit.

     

    Nirit & Michael Shaoul Fellows are free to carry out their own research at the University, to collaborate with other researchers in joint work, or to participate in any way they see fit in the life of the University. Many visitors have chosen to give a few lectures in their field of expertise. The lectures are frequently the highlight of the semester and attended by academics from all over Israel.

     

    Nirit & Michael Shaoul Fellows are entitled to reimbursement of their travel expenses to Israel based on the cost of an economy class ticket. They are provided with accommodation and a per diem of $45/day for the duration of their visit. The time of their visit should be coordinated with the visitor's Faculty host(s) and the IAS office.
