Since 2010, research collaborations between IIASA and Mexico have involved 19 Mexican organizations and led to 47 scientific publications in areas ranging from water resources, sustainable land use, and demography. Joint studies focus on the complex global systems that affect Mexico, its economy, environment, and people. Research topics include governance of transboundary water resources, risks to financial crises, climate change, sustainable energy, fiscal planning for extreme events, and projecting demographic change.
Underpinning the joint work is systems analysis—one of the few research tools with the breadth and depth to explore these complex problems across multiple sectors, countries, and timeframes. Moreover, the next generation of systems analysts are profiting from Mexican involvement in IIASA capacity building activities, including participating in the Luis Donaldo Colosio Fellowship and the IIASA-CONACYT Postdoctoral Fellowship. This mutually beneficial relationship involves scientific exchange, with 40 Mexican researchers, advisors, and diplomats visiting IIASA or participating in IIASA events, and over 50 IIASA researchers participating in events or visiting institutions in Mexico.
Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP)
The YSSP at IIASA offers fellowships for PhD students to undertake a summer project on a topic related to the IIASA research agenda. Applications for 2018 are now closed.
The Postdoctoral Program at IIASA offers fully funded research positions of up to two years to study topics related to the IIASA research agenda.
Currently IIASA employs approximately 170 scientific staff and 100 support staff. Preference for job applications is given to qualified applicants who are nationals of IIASA member countries.
A new IIASA study shows how improving communication and involvement could bring consensus solutions for the embattled Rio Grande/Bravo, which is shared between the USA and Mexico. More
