ACCOUNTING CLERK (permanent part-time)

The Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel, is one of the world's top-ranking multidisciplinary research institutions. Last summer the Nature Index 2017 Innovation supplement, published by the journal Nature, ranked the Weizmann Institute of Science sixth in the international roster of the world's top 200 research institutions. The index is a measure of how effectively basic research translates into commercial applications.

Noted for its wide-ranging exploration of the natural and exact sciences, the Institute is home to over 3,800 scientists, students, technicians and supporting staff. Institute research efforts include the search for new ways of fighting disease and hunger, examining leading questions in mathematics and computer science, probing the physics of matter and the universe, creating novel materials and developing new strategies for protecting the environment.

The mission of Weizmann Canada is twofold: to raise awareness and support for the Weizmann Institute of Science in order to maintain its standards of excellence; and, to promote science literacy. Weizmann Canada is a national organization with chapters in Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver and offices currently in Montreal, Toronto and Calgary.
