What is IIASA Postdoctoral Research Fellowship 2017?

The International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis invites applications from Ph.D. scholars for IIASA Postdoctoral Research Fellowship 2017. The fellowship offers fully-funded research positions of up to 2 years to study topics related to the IIASA research agenda.  


Who can apply for this scholarship ?

To be eligible for the fellowship, a candidate must -

  • Have his/her Ph.D. at the time of taking up the appointment and is expected to have a proven record of research accomplishments, and a solid working knowledge of English.
  • Have held his/her Ph.D. for less than five years at the application deadline.
  • Be a national of countries where IIASA has a National Member Organization

Note: The candidates need to be present at IIASA (the typical period for IIASA-funded postdoctoral support is 12-24 months). Please do not apply if the candidate needs to be away from the institute to do the research or expect IIASA to fund field research overseas. IIASA does not do lab-type research and therefore has no labs
