The Department of Jewish History and Biblical Studies at the University of Haifa is an interdisciplinary department, pursuing the research of Jewish social, economic, political, and intellectual history. This unique approach allows the department to offer flexible, diverse, and innovative programs that explore Jewish history and thought from the biblical period to the present.
In keeping with its progressive faculty, the Department of Jewish History and Biblical Studies seeks to promote emerging research trends in all areas of Judaic studies. As part of this alignment towards contemporary and innovative approaches,the department is launching a new program of post-doctoral residency. After completing their PhDs, many young and talented scholars would value the opportunity to develop their work in collaboration with an established figure in their respective fields. The prospect of working for few weeks with a senior scholar can contribute to one of the younger scholar’s research projects (a book, article, or application), while engaging the department faculty member in cutting-edge work.
The Department of Jewish History and Biblical Studies is pleased to announce a one-month residency for two post-doctoral fellows: one in the first semester of the academic year 2017-2018 (October 2017-January 2018) and one in the second (March-June 2018). The residency includes one month of accommodation on campus, an office, and library privileges. We encourage prospective researchers to contact a member of the department’s faculty and subsequently to propose to develop part of their post-doctoral research with this faculty member’s cooperation. Fellows are welcome to take part in the intellectual activities of the department and will have a chance to present their research. We encourage applicants to use this period of time for applying to scholarships for further funding.
