Llamado 12-23: proyectos en conjunto y movilidad entre Weizmann Institute of Science e Institut Pasteur de Montevideo

Call for applications for joint projects and mobility between Weizmann Institute Of Science and Institut Pasteur De Montevideo



The call is open for collaborative research projects to be developed between (at least) one research laboratory or technological unit from each party (WIS and IP Montevideo). The research project should have a clear research question, objectives, short and medium-term goals, expected results and potentially culminate in joint publications. The project may not be limited to the internship or a specific training instance.

Who can apply?

The call seeks to foster training opportunities for doctoral students and postdocs in the partner institute, but researchers of higher academic rank, such as principal investigators, group leaders, associate scientists (investigador/a adjunto/a senior), and assistant research associates (investigador/a adjunto/a) are also encouraged to apply.

In the case of PhD students, they should have completed at least one year in the doctoral program.

Researchers exchange / mobility

The duration of the stay should be at least one month and up to one year.



  • The host laboratory will cover all research-related expenses.
  • The salary or doctoral scholarship of the traveling person will be maintained at the home institution for the duration of the stay.
  • The host institute will cover lodging and health insurance during the stay.
  • Airfare will be covered by the home institute.
  • For researchers traveling to Israel, WIS will provide a salary supplement for students or positions with low salaries, to mitigate some of the living expenses in Israel.
