The post-doctoral fellow will benefit from a stimulating research environment in a region located at the forefront of present and future water challenges, as well as exposure to cutting edge water policies and research.
The stipend is about 8,000 NIS / month, for a one-year period with the possibility of extension. The preferred start date is March 2021, but this is flexible.
