The SA-YSSP is a three-month program held during the Southern Hemisphere summer, November to February. Modeled on IIASA’s well-known Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP), the SA-YSSP is now in its second year. It makes IIASA’s unique research and training opportunities more accessible to young scientists in the Southern Hemisphere, and connects researchers in Southern Africa with IIASA experts and the IIASA global research network.
The program is open to advanced PhD students studying in South Africa, a Southern African Development Community (SADC) nation, or one of IIASA’s 20 National Member Organization (NMO) countries, whose research falls into one of IIASA’s research areas. Each accepted PhD student will have the opportunity to work in close collaboration with a pair of experienced supervisors on a mutually agreed research topic.
The application period runs from 29 July to 16 September. For more details see the SA-YSSP Web site.
