IAST Scientific framework
The Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse aims to be the home of academic freedom and experimentation, where top-flight researchers are able to explore new territory in a multi-disciplinary direction and interact with visitors in a stimulating. environment.
The Research Program of the Institute is organized around 5 broad themes:
- Individual and Social Networks
- Governance and Markets
- Society, Globalization and Public Policy
- Individual motives, Actions, Innovation and Well Being
- The Nation State and Global Public Goods
We welcome contributions within these themes from researchers within a large range of disciplines: anthropology, biology, history, law, philosophy, political science, psychology and sociology, though motivated applications from outside these disciplines will be given full consideration. Applications from economists are also encouraged, but successful applicants will have demonstrated an interest in, and a commitment to, at least one of the other non-economics disciplines of the IAST.
Active researchers who have or will have completed their PhD after January 2011 and before September 2013. The IAST offers candidates an opportunity to devote themselves full time to their research at the start of their careers.
Fellows are provided with office space, computer facilities and a salary (currently 25 000€ per year) for one year, renewable under certain conditions for a second year.
Applications are now closed.
In the course of February 2013, the applicants will be informed by email of the decision taken by the IAST committee regarding their application.
