The tools we use to answer the big questions
IAST is dedicated to interdisciplinary research.
However, most of our researchers have trained within a single disciplinary framework, from which they reach out in their work to researchers from other disciplines.
What they have in common is a dedication to exploring questions of central importance to human society in the 21st century. Under the heading "Themes" we provide an indication of the kinds of question we believe represent some of the most fruitful areas of such interdiciplinary collaboration. Here we provide an indication of the disciplines from which our Fellows are drawn, both residents and visitors. In some of these disciplines we have active programs, headed by resident Program Directors. In others we are proud to draw on past and present work of Visiting Fellows and Post-doctoral Fellows.
The list is not exhaustive and we are pleased to accept motivated applications for positions at all levels from researchers trained in other disciplines.
