2012 IIASA United States YSSP Participants
The U.S. National Committee for IIASA and the Board on International Scientific Organizations are pleased to announce the 2012 IIASA Young Scientist Summer Program participants from the United States, organized by their IIASA research groups:

University of Maryland, College Park
Young Scientists Summer Program
The U.S. National Member Organization for IIASA sponsors advanced graduate students from U.S. institutions to travel to Austria to take part in IIASA’s 3-month Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP). YSSP fellows work closely with IIASA’s senior scientists on projects within the Institute’s research areas.
Participants are able to develop and expand their research topics and partake in a worldwide network of specialists with broad interdisciplinary and cross-cultural perspectives. Since the program’s conception in 1977, more than 1400 participants from over 70 countries have collaborated with IIASA researchers and engaged in scientific research of regional and global importance.

IIASA Postdoctoral Program
The USNMO/IIASA encourages young scientists to apply to the IIASA Postdoctoral Program, which affords researchers an opportunity to gain hands-on scientific research experience in an international environment.
IIASA’s Postdoctoral Program is an annual program that provides funding for up to two postdoctoral researchers for a 12-24 month period. The program serves to:
- Encourage and promote the development of young researchers.
- Offer young researchers the opportunity to further their careers by gaining
hands-on professional research experience in a highly international scientific environment.
- Enrich IIASA’s intellectual environment and help achieve research program goals.
- Successful candidates are expected to conduct their own research within one of IIASA's research programs or special projects on topics related to IIASA's agenda.

South African Young Scientists Summer Program
IIASA and South Africa are teaming up to launch a research training program inspired by IIASA’s successful Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP). Approximately 25 to 30 doctoral students from South Africa and around the world will spend three months at the University of the Free State in Bloemfontein beginning in December 2012. Participants will work on a research project using systems analysis methods that relates both to their studies and to IIASA's research agenda. Each student will be jointly supervised by a collaborating pair of advanced researchers, one from South Africa and the other from IIASA or IIASA's research network. Applications from doctoral students from South Africa, sub-Saharan African countries, and other IIASA member countries will be accepted from 15 August to 15 September. Links to the application will be available during those dates at the South African National Research Foundation (NRF) Web site (Description taken from IIASA Newsletter, Issue 8 -July 2012).
