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 20 National Member Organizations.
The Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP) provides a unique opportunity for participants to advance their research under the direct supervision of an experienced IIASA scientist, and at the same time contribute to IIASA’s ongoing scientific agenda; broaden their research interests by working in IIASA’s interdisciplinary and international research environment; build contacts with IIASA’s worldwide network of collaborators and with other YSSP fellows; have an opportunity to present their research at a designated summer workshop.The program offers a wide range of scientific events, including both social and natural sciences, often with important policy dimensions. An optional curriculum helps students put their research into perspective and adds a practical edge.
Since the beginning of the Program in 1977, 1673 participants from 84 countries have benefited from collaborating with IIASA’s scholars and enhanced their own perspectives and career opportunities.
Applicants to the YSSP prepare a research proposal that corresponds both with their professional plans and the agenda of their selected IIASA Program. Accepted applicants begin work before the summer by planning their research in close collaboration with their IIASA supervisors.
The 2013 application period closes on 14 January, 2013. For more information or to apply, please visit the IIASA YSSP Web site.
