More than half of the senior lecturers and professors hired by Israeli universities in the past six years are Israelis who returned from living and working abroad. Half of the senior academics in the country are between the ages of 30 and 40, and one-third of them are women, it was reported at a meeting of the Knesset Science and Technology Committee this week.
