The Weizmann Institute of Science is one of the world’s leading multidisciplinary basic research institutions in the natural and exact sciences. It is located in Rehovot, Israel, just south of Tel Aviv.
It was rated by "The Scientist" as the best place to work in research outside the Unites States, and the official language is English.
The Feinberg Graduate School is the academic arm of the Weizmann Institute of Science responsible for all student and postdoctoral affairs.
The Department of Particle Physics and Astrophysics within the Faculty of Physics is engaged in experimental and theoretical research in a wide range of topics that include elementary particle physics, field theory, string theory, theoretical astrophysics, observational astrophysics, planetary astronomy, particle astrophysics, relativistic heavy ion physics, molecular physics, nuclear physics, plasma physics, and radiation detection physics.
Our group is engaged in several topics within the fields of High-Energy, Astro-Particle Physics and Detector Physics, and participating in the XENON program, a direct dark matter search using two-phase xenon technology located at the Gran Sasso underground laboratory-LNGS (Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso, Italy).
We are also engaged in local R&D activities and calibration measurements, designed to enhance our understanding of current liquid xenon detectors and test new ideas for next generation detectors.
