He got first prize in 1962 International Mathematical Olympiad. Bernstein received his Ph.D. in 1972 under Israel Gelfand at Moscow State University, and moved to Harvard in 1983 due to growing anti-semitism in the Soviet Union. He was a visiting scholar at the Institute for Advanced Study in 1985-86 and again in 1997-98.
Awards and honors
Bernstein was elected to the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities in 2002 and was elected to the United States National Academy of Sciences in 2004. In 2004, Bernstein was awarded the Israel Prize for mathematics. In 1998 he was an Invited Speaker of the International Congress of Mathematicians in Berlin. In 2012 he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.
