Zohar joins the SCGP from the Weizmann Institute of Science, Department of Particle Physics and Astrophysics, in Rehovot Israel, where he held the position of Associate Professor.


He received his PhD from the Weizmann Institute in Physics in 2008, after which he served as a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study. His research studies in theoretical particle physics include a variety of topics such as Quantum Field Theory, Conformal Symmetry, Supersymmetry, Quantum Gravity, and Particle Physics Phenomenology.


Zohar has proven to be a bright and emerging young physicist and has been awarded many prizes including the New Horizons in Physics Prize (as part of the Fundamental Physics Prize Foundation, in 2012), the Gribov Medal (for outstanding work by a young physicist in Theoretical Particle Physics and/or Field Theory, in 2013), and the Philippe Meyer Prize in Theoretical Physics (in 2014).
