IIASA-Brazil Fellowships

Brazilian nationals and permanent residents are eligible to apply for postdoctoral fellowships at IIASA.

In 2016 our Brazilian NMO, the Federal Agency for Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education (CAPES), partnered with IIASA on a new initiative offering support for doctoral and postdoctoral scientists interested in collaborating with IIASA researchers: doctoral fellowships will enable up to three Brazilian PhD students to work at IIASA for 3-12 months, and postdoctoral fellowships will enable up to four Brazilian researchers to work at IIASA for up to 24 months. In each case, CAPES will provide a monthly stipend and contribute costs for travel, health insurance, and settling in.
