Doctor of Philosophy Programme (DMS)

PhD Advertisement for Spring Semester 2020 (DMS)

Applications are invited from motivated candidates to pursue research in the broad fields of Algebraic Topology, Commutative Algebra and Representation Theory. The minimum eligibility criteria is: A Master's degree in Mathematics with a minimum of 55% marks or CGPA/CPI of 6.5 on a 10-point scale.

Candidates having their own valid PhD fellowship (UGC/CSIR-NET JRF, NBHM or any other equivalent fellowship) are strongly encouraged to apply. Few Institute fellowship(s) may be available for candidates from other IISERs who have BS-MS degree with a CGPA score more than or equal to 8 on a 10 point scale.

Please note that fulfilling the minimum essential criteria does not ensure that a candidate will be called for the interview. It is expected that one should fill up the form carefully as additional short-listing criteria may be set based on academic records, experience and research interest/statement of purpose of the candidates as provided in the application form. Even though the shortlisted candidates are called for interview, a written test may precede the interview for further short-listing and candidates will be informed about the time and venue accordingly.

The candidates will be allowed to appear at the interview only after proper verification of documents.
