The Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) in Princeton, New Jersey, in the United States, is an independent, postdoctoral research center for theoretical research and intellectual inquiry founded in 1930 by American educator Abraham Flexner, together with philanthropists Louis Bamberger and Caroline Fuld. The IAS is perhaps best known as the academic home of Albert Einstein, Nobel Prize in Physics 1921, John von Neumann and Kurt Friedrich Gödel, after their immigration to the United States. Although it is close to and collaborates with Princeton University, Rutgers University, and other nearby institutions, it is not part of any university or federal agency and does not charge tuition or fees.
