Many of the Cohn Institute’s alumni have gone on to pursue academic careers. Some have come back to teach at the Institute or teach the history and philosophy of science at other university departments. Since the Institute allows its students to specialize in a wide range of topics, spanning from antiquity to the present, it also enables them to find positions in other university departments – not only in Israel, but all over the world.
