Instructions for Postdoctoral Candidates

The application process is through the Fluxx portal system (see previous page for link to application process), and all the instructions are there as to how to complete and upload all documents. You will need to upload into Fluxx:

-general information

-a resume/CV

-a full outline of your Ph.D. dissertation and  1-2 chapters of your work in English (or Hebrew with a summary in English), including the dissertation’s title and a list of works cited.

-a  detailed project proposal of your post-doctoral research, including what the outcome would be, and potential sources and methodology used. It should not exceed 10 double-spaced pages.

Masters level and Phd academic transcripts, including confirmation of PhD completion. Official transcripts or student copies of official transcripts (university seal must be visible) are acceptable.

-The Fluxx portal will provide a way for you to request three letters of recommendation and recommendation questionnaires from three references, respectively. One reference must be from an academic advisor who has worked closely with the applicant, and one from a supervisor who is well-acquainted with the applicant and their experience in a professional or volunteer setting. The third reference should be from a university or research institution confirming the support of their work and an agreement to host the candidate.

Optional: A web link or electronic, downloaded video file not more than 6 MB exhibiting the candidate delivering a concise description of his/her research topic. Only the first 90 seconds of the video will be reviewed.  Large, time-sensitive files will not be accepted.

 If you are having difficulty getting transcripts in English, please notify

Please note: For those candidates just finishing their PhD, you must have completed ALL your PhD requirements, including that of defending your thesis, BEFORE the application deadline.  Those who cannot provide a letter or certificate of PhD completion by the application deadline are not eligible to apply.

If you have questions or concerns while completing your application, please contact Dr. Joanna Sliwa at

Awards are usually announced in early April.
