    Ph.D. Programme in Computational Biology Admission 2013

    The Institute of Mathematical Sciences announces a new Ph.D programme in Computational Biology, starting in August, 2013
    This is a new initiative, the first of its kind in India, to train students from a variety of backgrounds in the Mathematical and Computational Techniques required to do cutting edge modern Biology, and perform international quality research in collaboration with leading Biology groups in India and elsewhere
    The programme is under the Life Sciences board of the Homi Bhabha National Institute (HBNI), of which IMSc is a constituent institution
    Before embarking on their research, students have three semesters of coursework, which consists of seven core courses, to be carried out at IMSc; elective courses, which may be taken at IMSc or at other institutions by mutual consent; and lab rotations, at collaborating labs in other institutions
    The core coursework covers essentials of modern biology, essential techniques from Physics, Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science, Physics of Proteins and Biomolecules, Biological sequence analysis and algorithms, and systems biology
    Elective coursework covers various topics in greater depth
    Following the coursework and a comprehensive examination, students will embark on research leading to a Ph.D degree awarded by HBNI
    Eligibility: Students with a master’s degree in any field of Science or Engineering who have strong Mathematical skills and an interest in Biology
    Students should apply with the results of one or more of the following national tests; JEST (Physics, Computer Science), NBHM (Mathematics), GATE (Engineering), NET (all Sciences)
    Holders of National Fellowships such as CSIR-SRF, DST-INSPIRE etc may apply directly
    Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed
    Application Form: Send applications on plain paper to the Registrar, The Institute of Mathematical Sciences, CIT Campus, Taramani, Chennai-600113, along with a covering letter, a statement of interest, a curriculum vitae including university grades/marks, results of relevant national test (JEST, NBHM, GATE, NET) or proof that you hold a national level government fellowship (CSIR-SRF, DST-INSPIRE, etc)
