Visiting Professors Program at the Halbert Centre for Canadian Studies:


The Halbert Centre sponsors visiting professors to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem for a short visit of 1-4 weeks. The program aims to build bridges and strengthen ties between Canadian and Israeli scholars.

Description of the program:

Scholars can arrive for a short visit of 1-4 weeks in order to teach, create and strengthen academic ties. During his or her stay, the Canadian scholar is expected to conduct a small workshop or an intense mini-course. In addition, he or she will meet with faculty as well as conduct a departmental and/or a public lecture, meet with Israeli colleagues, and engage in research.

The application must be submitted by the chair of the hosting department at the Hebrew University. The hosting department is requested to submit a plan reflecting the nature and scope of the visit, as well as the applicant's CV and a short bio. Please note that the CV should not exceed 2 pages in length, and should only include the candidate's experience in the last five years. The Halbert Centre will reimburse the visiting professor a total of up to 3,000 Canadian Dollars for the cost of airfare to Israel and housing fees. Any changes in the commitments made by the hosting department and/or the visiting professor will necessitate another review of the request by the Academic Committee and may affect the scope of the support offered.
