Young Scientists Summer Program and Postdoctoral Program at POP

IIASA’s annual 3-month Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP) and ongoing Postdoctorial Program offers research opportunities to talented young researchers whose interests correspond with IIASA’s research.

Young Scientists Summer Program

From June through August accepted participants work within the Institute’s Research Programs under the guidance of IIASA scientific staff. The YSSP provides a unique opportunity for participants to

  • advance their research under the direct supervision of an experienced IIASA scientist, and at the same time contribute to IIASA’s ongoing scientific agenda;
  • broaden their research interests by working in IIASA’s interdisciplinary and international research environment;
  • build contacts with IIASA’s worldwide network of collaborators and with other YSSP fellows.

Further details about the YSSP program and information on submitting an application are available at IIASA's YSSP web page.

Postdoctoral Program

Every year IIASA provides full funding for several postdoctoral researchers. Scholars are expected to conduct their own research in collaboration with one or more of IIASA's research programs or special projects in an interdisciplinary way. Postdoctoral positions, up to 2 years duration, should best be started between October and January.
