NCCS invites applications from eligible candidates for the post-graduate dissertation program. Eligible applicants, who are bonafide PG students with a consistently strong academic record and a commitment to pursuing studies in modern biology such as Cell & Molecular Biology, Structural Biology, Bioinformatics, Systems Biology, Neuroscience, Immunology, Infection Biology, Cancer Biology, and Microbial Ecology are encouraged to apply.

NCCS offers four annual enrolment periods for its dissertation program: January, April, July, and October. This schedule provides applicants the flexibility to submit their applications throughout the year. Please note that the application period opens five months prior to your intended start date and closes three months before it.


  1. Students who are currently pursuing their first year of M.Sc., M.Pharm, M.Tech, or students in their fourth year of B.Tech, B.Pharm, B.Sc., or integrated M.Sc.
  2. Applicants with qualifications such as MBBS, MD, B.V.Sc., or M.V.Sc. who have a keen interest in translational clinical research.

Applicants who have already completed or expected to complete their post-graduation before the training session ends are ineligible to apply. However, this does not apply to MBBS, MD, B.V.Sc., or M.V.Sc. degree holders. Please note that meeting the essential eligibility criteria does not guarantee shortlisting or subsequent selection for the PG dissertation at NCCS.


  • To submit your online application form, visit the ‘Project Positions’ section under the ‘Careers’ menu on the NCCS website. Please upload the following documents as a single PDF file. This two-page PDF should not exceed 1 MB in size:
    • The cumulative mark sheet of your Bachelor’s degree or, for four-year programs, the cumulative mark sheet for the third year.
    • A certificate from the Head of the Department/Principal of your College/University, or Institute using the provided format in ‘Annexure A’. Please print out ‘Annexure A’ on official letterhead, fill it out, add a photograph, have it duly signed, stamped, and scanned before you upload it.
    • Applications missing either of these attachments will not be considered for selection. This requirement doesn’t apply to candidates with MBBS, MD, M.V.Sc., or B.V.Sc. qualifications.
    • Please bring the original HOD certificate and the B.Sc. marksheet at the time of joining.
  • NCCS does not offer any stipend and does not impose any fees for the PG dissertation program.
  • The PG dissertation program is a full-time commitment. On-campus hostel accommodation may be provided to a limited number of students on a chargeable, first-come, first-served basis.
  • NCCS does not accept applications for part-time dissertations from any students, as the PG dissertation program is a full-time training program. Selected students are required to complete a minimum of 5 or 10 months of dissertation, and completion certificates will be issued only upon fulfillment of this requirement.
  • Enrolled students are expected to rigorously adhere to all rules and regulations established by the NCCS throughout the duration of their dissertation. Regular attendance at the workplace, scheduled lab activities, and any other academic events are typically required.
  • If you experience any technical difficulties during the online application process, please email us at [email protected]. All subsequent updates and information related to this process will be exclusively posted on periodically.
