NOMIS–ISTA Fellowship Program

NOMIS Partnership

In our incredibly complex world, discoveries often give rise to new questions—questions whose answers lie at the intersection of disciplines. To continue making discoveries, gaining insights and advancing human progress, we must approach these questions from an interdisciplinary perspective. But interdisciplinary research is not always straightforward, and researchers who are determined to answer fundamental crosscutting questions may lack the right environment for such exploration.

To tackle this issue, the NOMIS Foundation and the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (ISTA) have launched an interdisciplinary basic research program for exceptional postdoctoral scientists.

The NOMIS–ISTA Fellowship Program is designed to provide excellent postdoctoral researchers the freedom to pursue big questions at the intersection of two or more scientific disciplines in a collaborative research environment, while also providing outstanding scientific mentorship from proven leaders in their respective fields.

ISTA offers an enabling environment; state-of-the-art resources; dedicated mentorship from established, high-caliber scientists; and scientific leadership training. Fellowships span a range of fields, including biology, neuroscience, physics, chemistry, computer science and mathematics.
