Gruss Lipper Post Doctoral Fellowship

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 its first three years, the Gruss Lipper Postdoctoral Fellowship Program received over 125 applicants and awarded six multi-year fellowships. Since a limited number of fellowships will be awarded each year, only one fellowship per host institution will be awarded annually. 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 applications for the 2014 Gruss Lipper Postdoctoral Fellowship is September 2, 2013.
