Project Description

 Israeli scientists want to come home

A new survey of 2,500 participants published by ScienceAbroad shows 48% of Israeli academics living abroad are unlikely to return to Israel – and only 39% are seriously considering returning to Israel within the next year. Many of the respondents emphasized their desire to return and the importance of being able to receive information on jobs in their field in Israel. 76% of post-doctorate Israelis who leave Israel do so in order to return to a research position in Israeli academics, and 40% said the reason they remain abroad is because they have not found a suitable position in Israel.
