Peter E. De Jánosi Postdoctoral Fellowship

APPLY NOW! Application deadline 13 April 2020. 

The Peter E. de Jánosi Fellowship was established by IIASA in honor of Dr. de Jánosi, who, as director of the institute from 1990 to 1996, guided its transition from a bridge between East and West during the Cold War to its current role as a center for objective, multinational, interdisciplinary analysis of global change.

Funding is for up to two years and the fellowship is awarded for application of systems analysis to policy and management issues

Application process

1) Candidates are required to develop and submit a research proposal that interfaces their own research interests with the research agenda of one of the various activities pursued at IIASA. To find the program suitable for your research please view our research page. Once you have formulated a proposal we encourage you to contact the relevant program representatives

We suggest to look at the application form, frame the proposed according to the questions there, and then send an introductory e-mail. This is vital, not only to discuss research ideas and ascertain their relevance to IIASA but also to ensure more realistic research plans and expectations on the part of both IIASA and the applicant. 

2) Candidates should have held their PhD for less than five years at the application deadline. However, eligibility is extended under the following circumstances.


3) IIASA does not do lab-type research and therefore has no labs. Also please note that the fellowship requires you to be present at IIASA; please do not apply if you need to stay away from the institute for you research, or expect IIASA to fund field research.



Important dates: 

  • Application deadline: 13 April 2020
  • Results will be announced mid June 2020
  • Selected candidates are expected to commence their fellowship in between September and December 2020
