- Food-Web Evolution
- Vegetation Dynamics
- Adaptive Speciation
- Evolutionary Conservation Biology
- Evolution of Cooperation

- Adaptive Dynamics Theory and Models
- Spatial Models in Ecology
and Evolution Applicants prepare a research proposal that corresponds to their scientific interests and to the research agenda of their hosting IIASA Program. Accepted applicants begin work before the summer by planning their research in close collaboration with their IIASA supervisors. Previous experiences with implementing and studying evolutionary or ecological models are important assets for working in EEP. To improve chances of being selected, potential applicants are encouraged to sent informal inquiries regarding their specific research interests and plans to EEP's program leader Ulf Dieckmann (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Online applications will be accepted until Monday, January 16, 2012 (24:00 CET).
Since 1977, IIASA's annual Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP), has attracted 1500+ students from 80+ countries. The YSSP 2012 will take place from June 1 to August 31. IIASA is located in the former summer palace of Austria's royal family, ca. 15 km south of Vienna. IIASA's summer program offers exceptional opportunities for acquiring experience in an international and interdisciplinary research environment. Research training is based on regular personal interaction with advising scientists, and typically leads to a publication in an international journal, as well as to a chapter in a candidate's PhD thesis.
