The Gruss Lipper Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program supports outstanding young Israeli scientists who have the opportunity to work in a biomedical research laboratory in the United States. The program will identify the most qualified candidates who have been awarded a postdoctoral position in a U.S. host research institution and train them to become world leaders in the following areas of the Biomedical Sciences:

    Cell Biology
    Biochemistry/Proteomics
    Bioinformatics
    Biomedical Engineering
    Computational Biology
    Developmental Biology
    Molecular Biology
    Stem Cell Biology
    Genetics and Genomics
    Neuroscience

The goal of this program is to promote collaboration between U.S. and Israeli scientists and to provide young Israeli researchers with a broad range of experience so that they may return to Israel to continue their research career.

In the past eight years, The Gruss Lipper Postdoctoral Fellowship Program received close to 325 applicants and has awarded 15 multi-year fellowships. Since a limited number of fellowships will be awarded each year; applications will be reviewed by a national review committee of highly qualified biomedical researchers. Fellows are chosen on the basis of their promise as young investigators, the quality of their U.S. host institution and mentors, as well as the innovative nature of the proposed research.

The deadline for the 2018 Gruss Lipper Postdoctoral is October 15, 2017.
