How to apply: Candidates for Physics / Theoretical Computer Science can apply for JEST-2010 ON-LINE through http://jest2010.aries.res.in. Although ON-LINE applications are strictly recommended, those who have difficulty in accessing internet, hard copy of the application form can be requested by writing to: The Chairman, JEST-2010, Aryabhatta Research Institute of Observational Sciences (ARIES), Manora Peak, Nainital, Uttarakhand – 263129. Email applications and photo copies of printed applications will not be accepted. For Mathematics at HRI / IMSc, the candidates need not send any application. However, they may apply for the Research Awards of the National Board of Higher Mathematics (NBHM) and appear for that screening test. For details visit http://www.imsc.res.in and http://www.hri.res.in. The above information is also available at http://jest2010.aries.res.in. Details regarding the ongoing programmes at different institutions are available at JEST-2010 website. In case of ON-LINE applications, apply at the earliest to avoid the last-hour rush.
