Applications are invited to join the Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics (SINP) Ph.D. programme in Physics (Experimental and Theoretical) and Biophysical Sciences in the 2018-19 Session starting from August 2018.The programme starts with a pre-Ph.D. course work, popularly known as Post M.Sc. programme.
Eligibility for SINP Phd admissions
Physics: Masters’ degree in Physics.
Biophysical Sciences: Masters’ degree in Physics / Chemistry (with Life Science at 10+2 level) or Masters’ degrees in Life Sciences (with Chemistry and Mathematics at 10+2 level).
Students appearing in the final examinations for their Masters’ degrees during the current academic session may also apply. However, their admission will be made provisional till they successfully pass their Masters’ degrees in compliance with the cut-off requirement for SINP screening procedure (to be announced later). Master’s degree marks-sheet should be submitted by 30 November 2018.
Fellowships and benefits for SINP Phd amissions
The selected students are admitted to Post M.Sc. as Junior Research Fellow (JRF). Depending on the selection procedure and eligibility in nation-wide screening tests, there are two kinds of fellowships the students can enjoy:
i) SINP fellowships for candidates:
₹25,000/- p.m. for 1st two years
₹28,000/- p.m. for subsequent years
Tenure: 4 years, extendable to 5th year subject to satisfactory performance
Contingency, HRA etc. as per rule
ii) Extramural fellowships awarded by external funding authorities of Govt of India (UGC, CSIR NET, DBT and ICMR) for candidates who are selected through NET:
The amount of fellowship, contingency grant, HRA etc. will be as per CSIR/UGC/DBT/ICMR rules (SINP will take no financial responsibility for students selected in this scheme).
For all candidates, Limited hostel accommodation will also be available.
Selection procedure for SINP Phd admissions
A first screening will be done based on previous academic records of the applicants.
Candidates interested in both the experimental and theoretical physics streams are encouraged to apply separately.
A further shortlist of candidates will be prepared based on the performance in nation-wide screening test as mentioned below:
For Physics (Experimental and Theoretical):
i) Joint Entrance Screening Test (JEST)
ii) GATE in Physics
iii) CSIR/UGC NET for JRF in Physics
For Biophysical Sciences:
i) Joint Graduate Entrance Examination for Biology and Interdisciplinary Life Sciences (JGEEBILS) conducted by NCBS-TIFR.
ii) CSIR/UGC/DBT/ICMR NET for JRF
iii) GATE in Life Sciences, Biotechnology, Physics and Chemistry
For Physics: 16.04.2018
