    WIS has bright students and colleagues, the institute is rich with very good infrastructure, scientifically speaking it is a stimulating environment with daily seminars and meetings. It enjoys the best reputation in Israel, helping you get grants and recruit good students.

    A very competitive environment that doesn't support extracurricular activities. It is hard to recruit foreign postdoctoral students because of the geopolitical situation in Israel.
