Institute for Advanced Study, PrincetonIAS-logo-gray






A private and independent academic institution hosting 33 brilliant scholars and Nobel laureates, including Albert Einstein and John von Neumann, has flourished since its launch in 1930.

The institute specializes in four studies: Historical Studies, Mathematics, Natural Sciences, and Social Science.

Each year, approximately thirty eminent academics work with two hundred members from research institutions throughout the world. One program that we are particularly proud of is the Interdisciplinary Studies Program led by ELSI PI Piet Hut.
