Online applications for the 2014 program will be accepted as of 15 October, 2013.
Please note the closing date is 28 February, 2014. Applications received after the deadline can unfortunately not be considered.
In order to find the program suitable for your research please view our research page.
Candidates are required to develop and submit a research proposal that interfaces their own research interests with the research agenda of one of the various activities pursued at IIASA. Please note that only after reviewing your outlined draft proposal can the programs properly judge whether the research proposal fits their expertise and comment on the formulated question/problem.
Once a proposal has been formulated we encourage communication with the relevant program representatives. This level of personal interaction is vital not only to discuss research ideas and ascertain their relevance to IIASA’s scientific agenda but it also allows much more realistic formulation of research plans and expectations on the part of both IIASA and the applicant. An introductory e-mail is preferred as a means of first contact.
