Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
The International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) provides fully-funded postdoctoral research grants in the environmental fields, including ecosystem services and management, risk and resilience.
As a IIASA scholar, You are expected to conduct your own research in collaboration with one or more IIASA’s research programmes or special projects in an interdisciplinary way. You will be a part of the IIASA’s worldwide network of collaborators.
An internationally competitive fellowship includes monthly allowance, allowance for relocation expenses to and from Laxenburg (Austria) and limited support for monthly business travel.
The duration of the fellowship is two years starting between October and January each year.
How to Apply:
Applying for all our postdoctoral fellowships is done through the IIASA online postdoctoral application form, although the topical focus and eligibility varies. In addition to the IIASA funded fellowships, there are other IIASA dedicated postdoctoral fellowships where applications are made directly to the funders. Their descriptions can be found below.
Who can apply:
PLEASE NOTE: IIASA does not do lab-type research and as such does not provide any onsite lab-type facilities. Also: The fellowship requires you to be present at IIASA; if you need to stay away from the institute to do your research or expect IIASA to fund field research overseas please do not apply.
Candidates should have their PhD at the time of taking up the appointment and are expected to have a proven record of research accomplishments, and a solid working knowledge of English. The typical
period for IIASA-funded postdoctoral support is 12–24 months. Preference
will be given to applicants who are nationals of countries where IIASA has a National Member Organization and who have held a doctoral degree for less than 5 years at the application deadline.
