Organisation Type: Higher Education
Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) is one of Israel's largest research universities. Approximately 19,500 students are enrolled. The University has a campus in Sede Boqer which is situated 55 km south of the main campus in Beer-Sheva, the home of the Jacob Blaustein Institutes for Desert Research (BIDR). BIDR – Israel's national institute for desert research – is an integral part of BGU, with a scientific staff of about 90 scientists, 60 technical and administrative staff members, and 200 Israeli and foreign research students. BIDR's research activities are conducted in its three constituent institutes, one of them is the Zuckerberg Institute for Water Research (ZIWR). The academic staff of the BIDR publishes regularly in prestigious international journals and has been successful in obtaining grants from local and international bodies. Department of Environmental Hydrology & Microbiology is one of the two departments of the ZIWR. The Department promotes research into the identification, quantification and improvement of water quality in arid zones, with particular emphasis on developing methods for the treatment, reclamation and remediation of water in arid regions. Research is carried out at the field, laboratory and theoretical model levels by a multi-disciplinary academic staff of 13 tenured scientists.
