Post-Doctoral Research Fellowships

Several research postdoctoral fellowships are offered by the Department of Mathematics at the Technion each academic year.

These include the Anna and Paul Erdos postdoctoral fellowship (established by the late professor Paul Erdos in memory of his mother), the Lady Davis Postdoctoral fellowship, and others.

The fellowships are intended as an opportunity for a recent recipient of a doctoral degree to pursue his/her research in pure or applied mathematics and carry no teaching duties. All applicants will be considered for all fellowships.

The fellowships are for one academic year, starting October 1, and maybe extended up to two more years, subject to approval. A stipend is commensurate with local academic salaries and includes round trip travel. Some fellowships will also include partial housing support.

Applications should include:

  • Curriculum vitae
  • Statement of research interests and activities
  • Cover letter

The cover letter should name one or more faculty member in the department whose research interest are closest to the applicant’s.

The application should be submitted via the Registration Form.

Applicants should also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be send directly to the department at

It is recommended that the applications will be submitted by December 25 of each year. Later applications will also be considered, depending on the availability of funding.
