26th October 2022 : Postdoc position and special fellowship for postdocs from EU or EFTA states, UK and Canada

Dear Colleague:

I am writing to ask you to forward the information below about the
prestigious Azrieli postdoctoral fellowship to relevant (non-Israeli)
group members who may be interested in a postdoc during academic year
2023-2024 with _any_ group in Israel that sponsors the candidate.  The
deadline is November 15, 2022.

This could also include my own research group in theoretical biological
and soft matter physics, in the Department of Chemical and Biological
Physics at the Weizmann Institute of Science. The postdoc in my group is
_not_ necessarily dependent on the Azrieli fellowship which will give
the candidate a supplement to the regular Weizmann fellowship. Further
information on the group, our publications and collaborations can be
found on:

Candidates should email me directly: sam.safran@weizmann.ac.il

The information about the Azrieli fellowship follows my signature.
