The Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies at Tel Aviv University (MDC) has long served as an incubator of excellence for outstanding future thought leaders both in Israel and internationally. The MDC provides critical material, technical, and administrative support and mentorship to outstanding and carefully selected doctoral candidates and post-doctorates.

Visiting scholars and PhD students from other Israeli or foreign academic institutions have the opportunity to work one-on-one with researchers at the center and utilize its resources to conduct their research, with focus on Middle Eastern and North African politics, economics, history, anthropology, sociology and religion.
Research-based internships at the MDC are highly competitive, and draw students and aspiring academics from leading institutions throughout the world. Internships can be part-time (10-20 hours a week) or full time (20-35 hours a week), and are generally for a period of three to six months with the possibility of shortening or lengthening the term, as appropriate.

The Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies has established a funded research internship to honor the memory of Amira Margalith, who served as the Center administrator for more than two decades.
The MENA Regional Fellows Program hosts scholars from the Middle East and North Africa who are also currently teaching or permanently conducting research therein. The program enables Fellows to be in residence at the MDC for a period of approximately three months. During this time, they receive full access to our resources and a fixed grant to help defray housing, transportation, and research costs. Applicants wishing to stay for less time will still be considered, but will receive a grant pro-rated for the length of their stay.
