Registrations for the 2020 program are open from 7 Oct 2019 - 11 Jan 2020.
Who should apply?
The program is designed for PhD students (ideally about 2 years prior to receiving their PhD) 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 supervision 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 IIASA's worldwide network.
Applicants can choose to work with up to two 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.
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) and you will need to be present at the institute (i.e. no field work or working remotely) for the full duration of the program.
Most of IIASA's National Member Organizations (NMOs) provide grants to enable young scientists (either their own nationals or foreign students studying in their country) to participate in the YSSP. All successfully selected applicants will receive notification about funding shortly after the evaluation process.
