The Weidenfeld Institute of Jewish Studies is delighted to sponsor two new prestigious Visiting Fellowship programmes, for scholars of German-Jewish history and Holocaust Studies.

The Sussex - Tel Aviv exchange programme, launched in 2023, is a collaboration between the University of Sussex and Tel Aviv University and will host one faculty member from the other institution for a period of up to a semester. Visiting faculty will have the opportunity to present research and engage in discussion with faculty members from the host institute, and will contribute to the teaching programme by presenting a lecture or teaching on a course of their choice.

The Isaacsohn and André families’ Visiting Fellowship was also launched in 2023 and is in memory of the Isaacsohn and André families who perished in the Holocaust. This Visiting Fellowship programme will run initially for ten years, and will see leading academics from universities around the world joining Sussex experts in Jewish and Holocaust studies as Visiting Fellows, for a period of up to three months. This will deepen Sussex’s research in this field and enrich the programmes offered to students.

Fellows will join the Centre for German-Jewish Studies and will have the opportunity to form affiliations with other research centres across the University to promote even greater collaboration on the broad topic of Jewish studies.

Thanks to generous funding donations, both programmes are able to offer a stipend to participating faculty.

For further information on the programmes please contact Professor Gideon Reuveni or Professor David Tal. Continue reading to find out how to apply.
