- A cover letter.

- Curriculum vitae including a list of publications.

- A short research statement describing achievements so far as well as plans for future research.

 

In addition, three letters of recommendation should be sent directly to tsc@tau.ac.il:

- From the applicant's PhD advisor.

- From an established scientist who has personal acquaintance with the applicant.

- From an established scientist who has personal acquaintance with the applicant and is not from the institute where the applicant completed her/his PhD.

 

Review of applications will continue until the positions are filled. For primary consideration, applicants are encouraged to apply before March 31, 2024.
