The senior fellow will work with the staff and students of its philosophy and history of science department, and be able to use collections such as The Edelstein Collections (Chemistry, Alchemy, Dyeing, and Nutrition), the Albert Einstein Archives, the Yehuda Theological Collection of Isaac Newton, and the Friedenwald Collection (History of Medicine). The senior fellow will receive office space at the Center, which is located at the university’s Safra Campus, and a generous stipend (the sum of which may change according to availability).Senior Fellows will be provided with office space at the Center; a computer, if necessary; and access to all libraries and collections of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Senior Fellows are expected to dedicate their time to research (and acknowledge the support of the Center in any relevant publication or lecture) and to participate throughout their fellowship in the Center’s activities, such as colloquia, discussion groups, conferences and workshops. In addition, the Senior Fellows are expected to contribute actively to the Center by initiating activities such as discussion groups or workshops, for which the Center will provide organizational assistance and possibly partial funding.
