(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to Dr. Michael Oren, who served as Israel’s ambassador to the U.S. between 2009 and 2013, has accepted a faculty position at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya’s Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy and Strategy, the college announced Monday.

The IDC Herzliya is a private Israeli institution modeled after the Ivy League universities of the U.S. Its annual Herzliya Conference is often the forum in which Israeli leaders make key policy addresses. Oren, who completed his tenure as Israel’s envoy several weeks ago, has a doctorate in Middle East history from Princeton University and was a guest lecturer at Harvard and Yale universities before becoming a diplomat.
