by opportunitydiary

Application Deadline:  January 12, 2023

Applications for the IIASA Young Scientists Summer Programme 2023 are now open. IIASA offers a summer programme for PhD students to undertake a scientific project on a topic related to the IIASA research agenda.

Annually, from 1 June to 31 August, IIASA hosts up to 50 doctoral students from around the world in its Young Scientists Summer Programme (YSSP). Participation in the YSSP is only possible for one summer (however, you may apply several times) and you will need to be present at the institute (i.e. no fieldwork or working remotely) for the full duration of the programme.

Eligibility

  • The programme is designed for Ph.D. students (ideally about 2 years prior to receiving their Ph.D.) working on a topic compatible with ongoing research at IIASA and a wish to explore the policy implications of their work.
  • Participants will be working under the direct mentorship of an experienced IIASA scientist in a unique interdisciplinary and international research environment. They will produce a paper (serving as the first step towards a publishable journal article) and will get the opportunity to build up contacts for future collaboration within the institute’s worldwide network.
  • Applicants from all countries are welcome, although IIASA gives priority to citizens or residents of National Member Organizations (NMO) countries.

Application Procedure

The following steps will guide you through the application process: 

  • Step 1: Create a new application
    This option allows you to start a new application. Until the application deadline you can create a new application, edit an existing application, and submit the completed application to the programme.
  • Step 2: Fill in your application
    The application requires filling in a number of boxes that ask you to provide data about your research interests, CV, motivation for applying to the programme, and names of two references.
  • Step 3: Submit your application
    When you submit your application you will receive a confirmation email and further instructions. Once the application is submitted, it cannot be changed.
