Two Physics researchers were selected for the first cohort of the Zuckerman STEM Leadership Program
Two researchers from the Department of Particle Physics, Dr. Ishay Pomerantz and Dr. Joe Taenzer, were selected for the first cohort of the Zuckerman STEM Leadership Program. This $100 million initiative aims to provide support to the next generation of STEM leaders in the United States and Israel. The program will give the highest-achieving Israeli faculty scholars and American post-doctoral researchers the ability to collaborate at Israel’s top research institutions – the Hebrew University of Jerusalem; the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology; Tel Aviv University; and the Weizmann Institute of Science.
The program launch event was honored by Reuven Rivlin at the official residence of the President of the State of Israel.
Dr. Taenzer, a Zuckerman postdoctoral Scholar who earned his doctorate at the University of Toronto is involved in the ATLAS experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.
Dr. Ishay Pomerantz, a Faculty Scholar, is newly recruited to TAU’s Raymond and Beverly Sackler School of Physics and Astronomy after completing a post-doc at the University of Texas at Austin.
