Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse - Knownledge Across Frontiers

Visiting scholars

The Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse Scientific framework

We aim to be the home of academic experimentation and freedom, where top-flight researchers are able to explore new territory in a cross-disciplinary direction and interact with visitors in an exciting environment.

The IAST Research Program is organized around 5 broad themes:

  • Individual and Social Networks
  • Governance and Markets
  • The Nation State and Global Public Goods
  • Society, Globalization and Public Policy
  • Individual motives, Actions, Innovation and Well Being

The Institute welcome applications within these themes from researchers within a large range of disciplines, such as anthropology, biology, history, law, philosophy, political science, psychology and sociology, though motivated applications from any other discipline 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.

Eligible applicants

The IAST invites scholars from a large applicant pool for visits ranging from 1 month to 1 year, during the next academic year 2014-15. The group is interdisciplinary and international, and scholars are expected to pursue their own research. A completed doctorate or equivalent is required of all applicants.


Fellows receive reimbursement of travel and living expenses and are provided with a shared office and computer facilities.


Applications deadline : 31st March 2014

However, applications are welcome at any time before this deadline and will be handled on an ongoing basis.
