Mode of application & Selection Procedure (applicable to RGCB funded and externally funded programmes / Associateship)

Interested applicants have to submit a concept proposal (not more than 3 pages, explaining what they would like to do) along with the prescribed application format (below) and two letters of reference (one of which must definitely be from their PhD mentor). The concept proposal will be peer reviewed, and short-listed applicants will be asked to make a presentation before a selection committee. This committee will include the Director or his nominee as Chairman, Dean, Professor of Eminence and two scientists nominated by the Director. Additional external or internal experts may be included as needed. Candidates with approved international or national fellowships (CSIR, ICMR, DBT, DST, etc) obtained without going through this procedure (such as those wanting to transfer to RGCB) will also have to make the presentation before the selection committee.


  • RGCB funded post-doctoral programme: The selection committee, based on the applicant's track record and years of experience, will recommend the stipend amount
  • Externally funded post-doctoral programme: As per the guidelines issued by the funding agency.
