We are pleased to announce The Eric and Wendy Schmidt Postdoctoral Award for Women in Mathematical and Computing Sciences for 2018. As in previous years, we will offer this prestigious award this year to up to 10 women completing a Ph.D. at a research university in Israel. Candidates must come from the fields of mathematical and computational sciences or engineering and expect to graduate in Israel in 2019. Awardees will receive a stipend of US$50,000 for use during a postdoctoral fellowship abroad.

We will also consider renewal requests from laureates of the 2017 program.

All candidates should submit a completed application before May 15, 2018 (selecting the “Candidates” track). Candidates must enter their contact details, various types of academic information, and most importantly the contact details of at least 3 references — preferably from different institutions. We recommend that candidates reach out to their references well ahead of time and ask them to upload their letters of recommendation  (selecting the “Referrers” track) before May 15, 2018.
