The Jacob Robinson Institute was established in 2020 and is dedicated to investigating the relationship between individual and collective human rights in the domains of general and legal history, philosophy, anthropology, political science and other disciplines. In doing so, the Institute follows the spirit of its namesake, the Jewish jurist and minority rights activist Jacob Robinson (1889-1977) who stands for the implementation of universal human rights and the preservation of collective Jewish rights. In accordance with Robinson’s legacy, the Institute pays special attention to reparations studies.
The Institute is offering up to two visiting Ph.D. fellowships for the 2022-2023 academic year. Applications will be accepted from candidates from any discipline from non-Israeli universities who work on topics relevant to the Institute’s research interests – individual and collective rights as well as reparations studies.
Successful candidates will spend the academic year 2022-2023 in Jerusalem and receive the position of Visiting Students. They will receive a stipend of approximately 8,000 NIS per month and office space on Mount Scopus campus, where they are to carry out their ongoing research. Visiting Students are expected to engage in the Institute's academic activities.
