Prof. Nathan Rosen (Hebrew: נתן רוזן) Born into a Jewish family (March 22, 1909, Brooklyn, New York – December 18, 1995) was an Israeli physicist. Nathan Rosen attended MIT. In 1935 he became Albert Einstein's assistant at The Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, New Jersey and continued in that position until 1945. Einstein encouraged Rosen to continue his career in physics in Israel thereafter.

He was co-author (with Albert Einstein and Boris Podolsky) of a famous 1935 Physical Review paper ("Can Quantum-Mechanical Description of Physical Reality Be Considered Complete?") about the EPR paradox in quantum mechanics. He was also co-discoverer of the Einstein-Rosen bridge in general relativity.

Rosen was founder of the Institute of Physics at the Technion in Haifa, Israel, where there is a lecture series named for him. He was President of the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in the 1970s and commuted between the two institutions from his home in Haifa. He was very active in encouraging the founding of higher educational institutions in Israel.
