The UCLA Alan D. Leve Center for Jewish Studies (Leve Center) and the UCLA Initiative to Study Hate (ISH), with the support of the Anthony and Jeanne Pritzker Family Foundation, is pleased to announce The Research Hub on Antisemitism, a dynamic collective poised to evaluate the rising tide of antisemitism nationally and internationally.  The Hub is pleased to announce two initial endeavors:  a Postdoctoral Scholar position in the study of antisemitism, designed for a scholar who understands antisemitism within broad historical and political contexts and is open to exploring its connection to other forms of group-based hate.  We are also pleased to announce a call for research proposals from within the UCLA community, in any discipline, that engage with the past or present of antisemitism. UCLA faculty, research staff, and students (graduate and undergraduate) are welcome to apply, and collaborative projects are encouraged.  The Postdoctoral Scholar and successful grantees will build bridges between the vibrant communities of the Leve Center and ISH.

“It is critical that we do more than condemn the recent surge in antisemitism — we must actively work against it. I am grateful to the Pritzker Family Foundation for this important investment. The mission of the UCLA Research Hub on Antisemitism epitomizes the highest ideals of our institution and will help our society find ways to rise above animus in all its forms.”
—Chancellor Gene Block
