IIASA’s Young Scientists Summer Program waiting for you!

IIASA is an international research institute based near Vienna, Austria. A global leader in systems analysis, IIASA conducts policy-oriented, multidisciplinary research into challenges that are too large or complex to be solved by a single country or discipline. These challenges, which include climate change, energy security, and sustainable development, must be solved by international cooperation. It offers PhD student fellowships to undertake a summer project on a topic related to the IIASA research agenda.

Annually, from 1 June to 31 August, IIASA hosts up to 50 doctoral students from around the world in its Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP). If you are an advanced graduate student, take your research to the next level and apply to the YSSP to:

→  Access a global research network of over 3,500 scholars

→  Benefit from working alongside pioneering researchers

from around 50 countries

→  Conduct your own mentored research related to your PhD and the

interdisciplinary IIASA research agenda – culminating in a publishable paper

→  Enjoy the vibrant social life that comes with being part of the YSSP

→  Live in Vienna, which has repeatedly been named the most livable city in the world
