Markets, Politics, Ethics, and the Law in the United States

The Center for the Study of the United States in Partnership with the Fulbright Program and the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Tel Aviv University are delighted to announce two new post-doctoral fellowships for 2019-20 that focus on markets, politics, ethics, and the law in the United States. The grants are offered to candidates who wish to explore the meaning of markets and market economy in American life.

• Grant Amount: $30,000
• Candidates must be U.S. citizens and hold a Ph.D. from a recognized institution in Israel or abroad that has been received after February 15, 2015.

• Additional travel funds for non-Israeli fellows are available.
• Research Fellows will take part in the activities of both Centers, including Safra’s yearlong research group. While in residence, fellows are expected to dedicate their full time to research. Supplementary funding from other sources may be allowed, pending on a formal request and review by our boards.
