IIASA’s Young Scientists Summer Program, Austria

IIASA’s annual 3-month Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP) offers research opportunities to talented young researchers whose interests correspond with IIASA’s ongoing research on issues of global environmental, economic and social change. 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.

Eligibility Applicants from all countries are welcome. Although IIASA gives priority to citizens or residents of countries in which IIASA has a National Member Organization (NMO) a limited number of applicants from non-NMO countries are accepted each year and in very exceptional cases funding is provided. To be eligible for the Program applicants should meet the following criteria: * research experience corresponding to a level typical of a researcher about two years prior to receiving a PhD or equivalent degree; * a summer research proposal that clearly fits (i) the research agenda of a selected IIASA program, (ii) the research objectives of the candidate and (iii) the corresponding background and skills of the applicant; * an ability to work independently as well as to interact with other scientists; * fluency in English and the ability to communicate in a scientific environment; and * a willingness to actively participate in a broad range of interdisciplinary scientific activities at IIASA.

Scholarship Deadline: 17 January 2011
