IISER Integrated PhD admissions 2015
Indian Institute of Science Education Research (IISER) Kolkata, invites applications for admission to Post-Bachelor Integrated PhD programme (IPhd) for 2015-16 session.
Eligibility: Students with a B.Sc./B.E./B.Tech./M.B.B.S. or an equivalent degree from any recognized University/Institute/College can apply for the Post-Bachelor Integrated Ph.D. programme in Biological, Chemical, Earth, Mathematical and Physical Sciences. Candidates need to secure a minimum of 60% marks/equivalent grades in Honours/Major (if applicable), or 60% marks/equivalent grades in Aggregate (if Honours/Major is not applicable). Those who are appearing in the final examination of their degree course can also apply; for them, the eligibility marks are 60% based on the marks obtained in the undergraduate examinations held so far. The qualifying marks for SC/ST candidates are 50% as per Central Government relaxation policy.
The applicants who have qualified in nationwide aptitude tests such as JAM or JEST (Physical Sciences), JAM (Chemical Sciences, Mathematics & Statistics, Earth Sciences) or JGEEBILS (Biological Sciences), will be directly called to the interview if the cut-off criteria, based on their performances in those tests, are met with. If they do not meet the cut-off criteria, they may still sit for the IISER Kolkata Admissions Test (according to the eligibility criteria for the test). However, everyone must apply through this online portal to be considered either for the Interview or the Written Test.
Institute-level committee(s) will scrutinize all the applications, and prepare a shortlist of candidates, who may be called for written test/interview. The Institute will finally declare the list of selected candidates on the Institute website. Students will be given a monthly fellowship. For candidates whose final examination marks are not available at the time of interview, admission to the programme will be provisional. They must produce their final mark sheet to Academic Cell showing that they have secured a minimum of 60% marks/equivalent grades in Honours/Major (if applicable), or 60% marks/equivalent grades in Aggregate (if Honours/Major is not applicable) within 60 days of their admission.
