Peter E. De Jánosi Postdoctoral Fellowship 

The Peter E. de Jánosi Fellowship was established by IIASA in honor of Dr. de Jánosi, who, as director of the institute from 1990 to 1996, guided its transition from a bridge between East and West during the Cold War to its current role as a center for objective, multinational, interdisciplinary analysis of global change. Funding is for up to two years and the fellowship is awarded for application of systems analysis to policy and management issues.
