The Idit Fellowship, a framework for doctoral students who aspire to conduct multidisciplinary research in the social sciences, is recruiting up to 5 new fellows to join next year’s cohort. This call is for candidates who intend to embark on their doctoral studies at the University of Haifa in October 2022.

Successful applicants should have excelled in a master’s degree (thesis-based) or have other clear evidence for their exceptional potential as a research student (e.g., a first authored published paper in a respectable peer reviewed scientific journal).

The ideal candidate will be eager to work on cutting-edge interdisciplinary research crossing theoretical and methodological approaches from two or more of the following areas:

  • Computer Science

  • Political Science (public administration and policy, international relations, government and political theory)

  • Economics

  • Business Administration

  • Psychology (including the neuro and cognitive sciences)

  • Communications

  • Information Systems

  • Sociology

  • Anthropology

  • Statistics

  • Data Science

  • Criminology

  • Geography and Environmental Studies

  • Natural Resources and Environmental Management

Special consideration will be given to candidates who embrace the use of cutting-edge computational methods.

Fellows will receive a substantial monthly stipend, opportunities for academic teaching, exposure to “burning issues” in the social sciences, hand-picked courses and workshops intended to boost professional and personal development, the opportunity to participate in a unique interdisciplinary, conscientious and elite group, funding for attending/presenting in international conferences and personal mentoring focused on developing an academic career.

Applicants are requested to submit their application below having prepared the following documents:

• Detailed resume

• Academic transcripts with grade averages (for both B.A. and M.A. degrees)

Two letters of recommendation (one of which should be from the adviser of the M.A. thesis)

• Statement of research intent (up to one page)

Deadline for Submissions: 7.8.2022 (August, 7, 2022)

Applications are now closed.

Interviews will take place in August 2022. Final decisions will be made by September 2022.
