Description:
Every summer from 1 June to 31 August, the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) hosts up to 50 doctoral students in Natural and Social Sciences, Math, Engineering, Management and Policy from around the world in its Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP).

Each YSSP participant works on a topic related to his or her PhD thesis and to IIASA?s own research agenda, the goal being to write a publishable paper. All YSSP participants are personally mentored by IIASA senior scientists.

Successful applicants from countries with an IIASA National Member Organization (NMO) are eligible for funding, and some fellowships are also available for students from non-NMO countries.

What is IIASA?

IIASA is an international institute engaged in scientific research that aims to provide support for policymakers on issues of importance in the following global problem areas:

* Energy and Climate Change

* Food and Water

* Poverty and Equity

IIASA?s research comes under the following programs:

* Energy

* Transitions to New Technologies

* Advanced Systems Analysis

* Ecosystem Services and Management

* Mitigation of Air Pollution and Greenhouse Gases

* Evolution and Ecology
