From JTA, November 9, 2008:
The Weizmann Institute of Science was ranked the best international academic institution at which to work by a leading science magazine.
The Israeli institute in Rehovot topped The Scientist’s annual survey of “Best Places to Work in Academia.” The magazine cited Weizmann’s research resources, infrastructure and work environment.
The survey, published in the November issue, reviewed entries from more than 2,300 respondents representing 73 institutions worldwide.
An analysis by the magazine determined that Australia is the best country overall in which to conduct scientific research. Runners-up were Israel, Belgium, the United States and Canada.
