    An Israeli research centre has been named as the best place for academics to work outside the United States.

    The Weizmann Institute of Science, in Rehovot, was praised by Scientist Magazine in its annual survey of thousands of academic workplaces.

    It came top in the list of international academic institutions, above the university of St Andrews and Groningen University in the Netherlands.

    The institute, founded in 1934 by future Israeli President Chaim Weizmann, hosts around 25 high-profile conferences every year.

    Ada Yonath, the Israeli scientist who won the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 2009, is a former student and is a faculty member.
