We aim to be the home of academic experimentation and freedom, where top-flight researchers are able to explore new territory in a cross-disciplinary direction and interact with visitors in an exciting environment.
The Institute welcomes applications for Visiting Fellowships from researchers within a large range of disciplines. All research interests relevant to the broad study of human behaviour are welcome, but interests that complement and / or enhance those already developed at IAST will be given special consideration. These include to cite only a few:
- In history: quantitative economic history (cliometrics), empirical political economy in history, qualitative economic or social history.
- In evolutionary biology: theoretical models of evolution (applied to family structure, strategic interactions, plasticity, cognition, learning, cultural evolution); related empirical work.
- In anthropology: human biology, life history theory, human development and plasticity, health and infectious disease, ageing, demography, host-parasite co-evolution, diet and nutrition, global health, evolutionary medicine and genetics.
- In political science: public opinion and public policies, political economy, political institutions, development, experimental political science, studies of networks and their impact on individual and collective action.
- In law: law and economics, corporate governance, criminology.
- In psychology: cognition, emotions, social trust, gender, group decision-making.
- In sociology: network formation, the impact of networks on social outcomes, sociology of religion.
Applications from economists are also encouraged, but successful applicants will have demonstrated an interest in, and a commitment to, at least one of the other non-economics disciplines of IAST.
IAST invites scholars already employed in a permanent position by another research-active institution for visits ranging from 1 month to 1 year, during the next academic year 2020-21.
The group is interdisciplinary and international, and scholars are expected to pursue their own research. A completed doctorate or equivalent is required of all applicants.
