Education and Training

Education and training are an integral part of IIASA research. Programs like the Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP), Postdoctoral fellowship program, and the new Southern Africa YSSP build capacity at the governmental and international level and also further the development of  successive generations of young scientists in the systems analytical tradition.
Southern African Young Scientists Summer Program

IIASA and the South African National Member Organization have partnered to develop the pioneering Southern African Young Scientists Summer Program (SA-YSSP) as a pilot regional spin-off of IIASA’s flagship YSSP. More

Postdoctoral Research at IIASA

Every year 4 postdoctoral scholarships are available for research on topics related to the IIASA research agenda, with two selection periods each year in December and June. More

Young Scientists Summer Program

Since 1977, IIASA’s annual 3-month Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP) offers research opportunities to talented young researchers whose interests correspond with IIASA’s ongoing research on issues of global environmental, economic and social change. From June through August accepted participants work within the Institute’s research programs under the guidance of IIASA scientific staff. Funding is provided through IIASA's National Member Organizations. More
