Summer Fellowships for Young Scientists at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis, Austria 

Funding is available for PhD students interested in three months of collaborative research during June to August 2018 on 

     Evolutionary and Ecological Modeling 

at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Laxenburg, Austria. 

Young scientists from all countries are eligible for stipends provided by IIASA’s Evolution and Ecology Program (EEP) that contribute to travel and accommodation costs. Students from most of IIASA’s member countries – Australia, Austria, Brazil, China, Egypt, Finland, Germany, Indonesia, Iran, Israel, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway, Russia, South Africa, Sweden, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, USA, and Vietnam – are eligible for fellowships that provide full coverage of travel, accommodation, and living expenses. 

Model-based summer research projects are invited in the following indicative areas:  

     Fisheries management 
     Fisheries-induced evolution 
     Evolution of cooperation 
     Governance of common goods 
     Systemic risk and network dynamics 
     Eco-evolutionary dynamics 
     Evolutionary community ecology 
     Food-web evolution 
     Vegetation dynamics 
     Adaptive speciation 
     Disease ecology and evolution 
     Evolutionary conservation biology 
     Adaptive dynamics theory and models 
     Spatial models in ecology and evolution 

Applicants are encouraged to propose research that corresponds to their scientific interests and to EEP’s agenda. Accepted applicants will begin work before the summer, by planning their research in collaboration with their IIASA supervisors. Previous experiences with implementing and studying evolutionary or ecological models are important assets for working in EEP. To improve chances of being selected, potential applicants are highly welcome to send informal inquiries regarding their specific research interests and plans to EEP’s program director Ulf Dieckmann ([log in to unmask]). 

Online applications will be accepted until Thursday, January 11, 2018 (24:00 CET). 

Since 1977, IIASA’s annual Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP), has attracted 1900+ students from 86 countries. The YSSP 2018 will take place from June 1 to August 31. IIASA is located in the former summer palace of Austria’s imperial family, ca. 15 km south of Vienna. IIASA’s summer program offers exceptional opportunities for acquiring experience in an international and interdisciplinary research environment. Research training is based on regular personal interaction with advising scientists, and typically leads to a publication in an international journal, as well as to a chapter in a candidate’s PhD thesis.
