We are a premier research institute with all the necessary facilities that a research scientist may need. Research interests of our faculty members lie in the frontier areas of biology, and the science at NCBS (a part of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research ) uses experimental and computational approaches in the study of molecules, cells and organisms. We aim to understand biology at each of these levels to advance an integrated view of life processes. The talent and drive of our students and faculty members continues to show us the way to good science.
NCBS’s main campus is in Gandhi Krishi Vigyan Kendra (GKVK) on Bellary Road, in the north of Bangalore. The campus has accommodation for students, visitors and faculty and facilities for child-care , sports and recreation. Another campus, close by and which continues to be developed, has additional student accommodation.
Campus Fellows Program:
The Campus Fellows Program is targeted at postdoctoral scientists of exceptional talent, and provides them broad independence and support to carry out their research in a host laboratory at NCBS or inStem. Fellows are expected to drive new research directions in their host laboratories, and to establish themselves as independent scientists.
Campus Fellows are appointed for a period not to exceed 4 years, contingent on successful annual review every year. The Fellowship provides a consolidated salary of Rs. 90,000 per month as well as campus housing. The program is flexible: Fellows may choose to hold a part of their Fellowship off-campus for collaborative work and training relevant to their program of research. During their tenure, Fellows are also eligible to apply for external competitive awards.
Candidates should not have more than 4 years of postdoctoral research experience. Fellows must be sponsored by a local host who is a member of NCBS/inStem Faculty.
Your full application package as a single collated PDF should consist of the following:
- Your latest CV
- A research proposal with detailed plans and timelines of the project, developed in close collaboration with your proposed host. The length should not be more than 4-5 pages including references.
- PDF versions of 1 to 3 first-author publications In addition, we require the following: – A letter of support from your proposed host (emailed directly to acadoffice at ncbs dot res dot in)
