When I joined IIASA's post doctoral program I soon realized that not all academic theories, however rigorously thought out, can interpret the integrated dynamics of the real world.

At IIASA I learnt the efficacy of applying theory to practice and deriving policies which are integrated in nature. The multidimensional approach to viewing a problem often encourages integrated solutions to a very complex system. If you wish to test a theory and enlarge its core, IIASA is one of the best places to do it.

IIASA's postdoctoral program is a learning experience in itself as researchers, while continuing with their own research, can easily become involved in themes running in different programs. A two-year postdoctoral research position at IIASA, opens up a world of career opportunities, that are not confined to the academic sphere.
