TEL AVIV (JTA) — A survey of the best places to work in academia ranked Jerusalem’s Hebrew University as the second best place to work outside of the United States.
The school ranked ninth overall, according to The Jerusalem Post. It was the only Israeli school in the top 25 in The Scientist magazine rankings, which were based on answers to a survey submitted by more than 1,000 researchers in the life sciences.
“This demonstrates that a community in which it is pleasant to work is also one in which one sees outstanding academic achievements,” Hebrew University President Menachem Ben-Sasson said, according to the Post.
Finishing ahead of Hebrew U. in the outside the US rankings was The Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Vienna.
Overall, The J. David Gladstone Institutes in San Francisco was ranked first.
