NBRC conducts cutting-edge research in diverse areas of the interdisciplinary field of neuroscience. Visit our faculty research pages on the NBRC website to get a flavour of ongoing work. If you are enthusiastic about a career in brain research, do consider joining our PhD or M.Sc. (Neuroscience) programme.

PhD (Neuroscience)

Given the fact that modern-day neuroscience is highly interdisciplinary in nature and relies on a spectrum of techniques spanning different disciplines, students from diverse academic backgrounds are encouraged to join NBRC and excel in neuroscience research. Our PhD students come from vastly different backgrounds such as Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Engineering and Medical Sciences.

To gain an all-round perspective of neuroscience, you will undergo one year of coursework, where you will learn from molecular to computational neuroscience and everything in -between. You will also get an opportunity to rotate in various labs to get a closer look at the research work, and zero-in on what excites you the most.

All admitted candidates receive a Junior Research Fellowship of ₹ 31,000 per month + HRA (in lieu of hostel accommodation) for the first two years. After two years, you will be eligible for a Senior Research Fellowship of ₹ 35,000 per month + HRA (in lieu of hostel accommodation).

If you fulfil the minimum eligibility criteria , you can appear for one of the many different examinations to qualify for the Ph.D. admission interview. Click here to learn about the entrance examinations.

M.Sc. (Neuroscience)

This is a two-year programme. During the first year, Masters students at NBRC have to go through an intensive course-work which provides them with a firm grounding in molecular, systems, computational and cognitive neuroscience. Practical courses are also included for a hands-on experience with various techniques which are used in modern neuroscience research. In their second year, students select a lab to do a full-time research project. You might be eligible to switch to the Integrated M.Sc.-Ph.D. programme of NBRC after successfully completing the requirements for the M.Sc. programme. Click here for more information.

All the students are provided a fellowship of ₹ 12,000 per month.

If you fulfil the minimum eligibility criteria for admission to our M.Sc. programme, you need to appear for Joint Graduate Entrance Examination for Biology and Interdisciplinary Life Sciences 2021 (JGEEBILS 2021) (To be held in March 2021). Selected candidates will be called for interview.
