GENERAL APPLICATION INFORMATION FOR POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWS
1) Candidates are required to develop and submit a research proposal that interfaces their own research interests with the research agenda of one of the various activities pursued at IIASA. To find the program suitable for your research please view our research page. Once you have formulated a proposal we encourage you to contact the relevant program representatives.
We suggest to look at the application form, frame the proposed according to the questions there, and then send an introductory e-mail. This is vital, not only to discuss research ideas and ascertain their relevance to IIASA but also to ensure more realistic research plans and expectations on the part of both IIASA and the applicant.
2) Candidates should have held their PhD for less than five years at the application deadline. However, eligibility is extended under the following circumstances.
3) IIASA does not do lab-type research and therefore has no labs. Also please note that the fellowship requires you to be present at IIASA; please do not apply if you need to stay away from the institute for you research, or expect IIASA to fund field research.
Before applying please also have a look at our postdoctoral fellowship guidelines.
For information on call openings and application deadlines please see information below.
