About Sackler Scholars
The Mortimer and Raymond Sackler Institute of Advanced Studies promotes and supports visits at Tel Aviv University by eminent experts in different academic fields from outside the University.
The Institute recognizes two types of visitors.
- Sackler Lecturers are invited for a period of 1-2 weeks and are expected to deliver a few lectures during their visit.
- Sackler Scholars are visitors who stay at the University for a period of 1-3 months for the primary purpose of interacting with Faculty members and graduate students. They are free of the regular responsibilities of visiting faculty members, including teaching, lecturing, or administrative duties. Although, most of our guests have chosen to give a few lectures in their field of expertise. The lectures are frequently the highlight of the semester and attended by academics from all over Israel.
