PhD Advertisement for Autumn Semester 2021 (DMS)
Applications are invited from motivated candidates to pursue research in the broad fields of Pure Mathematics (Group A)and Statistics/Applied Mathematics (Group B). The minimum eligibility criteria for each of the subject areas under the two groups are as follows:
The profiles of the Faculty members of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, in the aforementioned subject areas, can be found in the URL: Click Here
Candidates applying for Nonparametric Statistics and Functional data Analysis are expected to have strong background in Linear Algebra, Measure Theory and Stochastic Processes.
Candidates applying for the subject Algebraic and Differential Topology are expected to have a strong background in basic topology, basic algebra and several variable calculus.
Candidates applying for the subject Non commutative Geometry and Operator Algebra are expected to have a strong background in analysis (Real, complex, Functional), a reasonable background in Riemannian geometry and Group representation (finite).
Candidates applying for the subject Number Theory are expected to have a strong background in Abstract algebra, Linear algebra and complex analysis.
Candidates applying for the subject Operator Theory are expected to have a strong background in Functional analysis, Measure theory, calculus and complex analysis.
Candidates applying for the subject Several Complex Variables are expected to have a strong background in complex analysis, Multivariable calculus and linear algebra.
Candidates having their own valid PhD fellowship (UGC/CSIR-NET JRF, NBHM, DBT-JRF, ICMR-JRF, INSPIRE or any other equivalent fellowship) are strongly encouraged to apply. Few Institute fellowships only for the subjects: Nonparametric Statistics and Functional data Analysis, Non Commutative Geometry and Operator Algebra, Number Theory might be available for deserving candidates who do not have fellowship provided that they have qualified any national level entrance exam such as GATE, NET-LS etc. (apart from satisfying minimal eligibility criteria) or are from other IISERs having a BS-MS degree with a CGPA score more than or equal to 8 on a 10 point scale.
