Candidates should have held their PhD for less than five years at the application deadline. However, eligibility is extended under the following circumstances.
IIASA does not do lab-type research and therefore has no labs. The IIASA postdoctoral fellowship requires you to be present at IIASA; do not apply if you need to stay away from the institute for you research, or expect IIASA to fund field research.
Once you have formulated a proposal we encourage you to contact the relevant program representatives. We suggest to look at the application form, frame the proposed according to the questions there, and then send an introductory e-mail. This is vital, not only to discuss research ideas and ascertain their relevance to IIASA but also to ensure more realistic research plans and expectations on the part of both IIASA and the applicant.
Please note: Upcoming application deadlines: 1 April and 1 October 2017. Applications are currently closed and will open soon. The IIASA online postdoctoral application form will be available soon, please keep checking our webpage for updates on that matter.

Once you have submitted your application we will contact your two referees via the email addresses provided by you. We recommend you contact your referees well in advance so they know they will receive an email from us.
