Responsibilities of an Azrieli Postdoctoral Fellow
In order to maintain good standing, Azrieli Fellows will be required to sign a form committing themselves to the fulfillment of the following responsibilities:
1. Academic Excellence
Fellows are obligated to maintain a high level of academic excellence throughout the program. Progress reports must be submitted by the Fellow to the Azrieli Fellows Program management twice a year. The reports will describe the research done up until that point and must be signed by the Fellow’s academic sponsor who should also provide detailed comments.
2. Community Work
Azrieli Fellows will be asked to volunteer 40 hours over the course of the year at an a-political or non-partisan program to be approved in advance and in writing by the Azrieli Fellows Program management. We are available to advise you regarding a volunteer placement based on your area of interest, Hebrew language ability and location.
3. Participation in Program-sponsored Events
In order to foster the exchange of ideas between Azrieli Fellows, both Israeli and International, and to maintain a sense of group identification, the program will sponsor several events during the academic year at which Fellows may socialize and share their research and study activities. These events include but are not limited to: the Fellows gala, the Azrieli Fellows forums and an end-of-year dinner.
The work produced by the Fellows during the course of their research in Israel may be eligible for publication in a future on-line journal. Any written work published by the Fellows while participating in the program must acknowledge the support of the Azrieli Foundation in a written dedication.
Fellows will also be asked to submit an abstract of their dissertation and published works to the Azrieli Fellows Program management for use in publicity material produced by the program and on the Foundation website.
5. Alumni Activities
Fellows will be part of a growing global community of Azrieli Fellows alumni. Fellows will be asked to share their experiences with others, to publicize the Program to their colleagues and to participate in information sessions for new candidates that may be held in their region. In the future, it is expected that alumni will assist in the selection process for incoming students.
