Association of Members of the Institute for Advanced Study (AMIAS)
The Association of Members of the Institute for Advanced Study (AMIAS) counts all accepted, current, and former Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) scholars amongst its membership – more than 8,000 individuals worldwide. The AMIAS works to complement and sustain the core mission of the IAS, which is to support research of the highest caliber. The AMIAS is governed by a scholar-elected Board of Trustees, which meets biannually, sponsors Institute lectures, and welcomes former IAS scholars back to campus each year for special events. MPI-MMG Director Ayelet Shachar is now an elected member of the AMIAS Board of Trustees.
