The recipients of the fifth season of the Post-Doctorate Scholarships program are Dr. Dafna Gross-Manos (Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A.), Dr. Eran Melkman (Oxford University, UK), and Dr. Adi Stern (King’s College, UK). The three were chosen following a rigorous selection process by an academic committee whose members were Asher Ben-Arieh, Prof. Anat Zeira, Prof. Badi Chasyasi, Prof. Ariel Knafo and Prof. Adina Meir. In December 2016 a study session was held with the three scholarship recipients at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King’s College, London. During this session, the recipients gave lectures and received a tour of the Center for Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry. Delegates from the Haruv Institute who took part in the tour were Prof. Ben-Arieh and Prof. Zeira. Of the 12 graduates from the first four seasons of the program, six have already joined faculties in the academia (at the Hebrew University, the University of Haifa, Bar-Ilan University, Ben-Gurion University and the Western Galilee College): Dr. Dafna Tener, Dr. Iris Lavi, Dr. Adi Barak, Dr. Florina Uzefovsky, Dr. Yochai Nadan and Dr. Benjamin Bailey. The Haruv Institute maintains constant ties with the program’s graduates in the Haruv Colleagues framework, and supports their research projects in various ways.
