“It’s a privilege to have the excellent people from Israel come to occupy the fellowships…we are hugely grateful for the support from the Blavatnik Foundation. We look forward to meeting the new Blavatnik Postdoctoral Fellows and welcoming them to Cambridge later this year”.

Blavatnik Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme
The Blavatnik Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme enables Israeli scientists of outstanding ability to pursue their research at the University of Cambridge, while fostering a scholarly exchange and greater understanding between researchers in Britain and in Israel.
We are inviting applications from Israelis seeking to undertake their first postdoctoral funding in the fields of life sciences, physical sciences and engineering at the University of Cambridge. Fellows will receive an annual stipend of £30,600. Additional funding of up to £6,000, to support direct research costs including bench fees, conference attendance and visa fees, will be available through the respective university departments.
Fellowships will be tenable for up to two years. Funding for the second year is subject to satisfactory undertaking of the Fellowship and subject to approval of the grant committee.
