A mentorship initiative for Israeli women postdocs

WISER was initiated in September 2020 by postdocs for postdocs. We connect Israeli women who are postdocs in any academic field (mentees) with senior scientists from all the universities in Israel (mentors). The main purpose of this connection is to provide informal support and guidance during the postdoc period.

About Us

Founders: we are a group of seven Israeli postdocs, who founded Wiser together with Prof. Masha Niv. We established the mentoring program and designed a supportive environment for female postdocs. The initiative was the idea of Natanella Illouz-Eliaz, who started her postdoc in September 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic and was born of necessity. All WISER participants, team, and mentors, move this initiative forward voluntarily and this is a non-profit program.

Beyond Mentoring

To compliment one-on-one mentoring program, we provide a platform for sharing experience and knowledge about various aspects of an academic career track, mentoring and unique view points relevant for women.


We are hosting small-group meetings with Israeli PIs on specific subjects relevant for different stages of the postdoc.

Become a Wiser Mentor

WISER mentoring takes place in informal on-line meetings, at a frequency suitable to both mentor and mentee (usually once every month/three months). A successful mentorship relation does not require from the mentor any previous preparation before the meeting. We know our mentors are academic researchers and their time is extremely valuable. We believe that the impact of the mentoring program on the postdoc鈥檚 future career and on the whole scientific community, with minimal investment of time, is enormous.
