The program is designed for PhD students (ideally about 2 years prior to receiving their PhD) working on a field compatible with ongoing research at IIASA and a wish to explore the policy implications of their work. Participants will be working under the direct supervision of an experienced IIASA scientist in a unique interdisciplinary and international research environment. They will produce a paper (serving as first step towards a publishable journal article) and will get the opportunity to build up contacts for future collaboration within IIASA's worldwide network.
Candidates apply via the online application form (find the 'APPLY NOW' banner on the right side during the application period). Applicants can chose 1-2 programs. If there is additional is interest in one of our flagship projects this can be indicated in the box provided in the application form (under "please justify your choice of programs here"). We strongly encourage contacting the various program representatives and carefully read through all program descriptions before making your decision.
Registrations for the 2019 program are being accepted from 1 Oct 2018 - 11 Jan 2019.
Applicants from all countries are welcome, although IIASA gives priority to citizens or residents of NMO countries. Participation in the YSSP is only possible for one summer (however, you may apply several times).
