The IASS Fellow Programme is inspired by the Potsdam Memorandum’s call to gather all sources of ingenuity and inspiration from academia, politics, business and civil society to address the sustainability challenges of our time. The fellows are a key resource for the institute; they support our research, improve our transdisciplinary methodology, and, together with our researchers, reach out to political, economic, and social actors. Since 2010, more than 250 fellows from over 40 nations have worked at the IASS. An overview of current and former Fellows is available here.
For the coming year, the IASS is looking for individuals from the fields of academia, public administration, business, civil society, and culture who can contribute to the Institute's research. Applications should engage with the themes addressed in at least one of the six research areas.
The Fellow Programme is designed to bring highly qualified people from academia, the business world, and civil society to the institute, who provide expertise, inspiration, and creative input. In return, the IASS offers fellows the opportunity to develop their ideas in an international community of world-class researchers, within the institute as well as in the wider research landscape of Potsdam and Berlin.
Applications will be considered by the Institute’s Board of Directors and external reviewers before they are submitted to our Advisory Board. The deadline for applications is 22 August 2021. The call for applications and further information on the entry requirements and general conditions can be found here.
