Ph.D Admission 2013 - 2014

Director, Institute of Microbial Technology (IMTECH), invites exceptionally motivated candidates to appear for a walk-in interview on July 15, 2013, (Reporting time 9.00 a.m. to 12 noon) for pursuing doctoral research at IMTECH under the aegis of the Ph.D. degree program being jointly run by IMTECH and the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), New Delhi. The candidates who have passed MSc and cleared any of the following examination (with valid fellowship) are eligible to attend the interview:

(a)CSIR-UGC NET (NET-LS not eligible)
(b) DBT-JRF examination (‘A’ Category only)
(c) DST INSPIRE Fellowship
(d) ICMR-JRF examination (those selected for working only in ICMR Projects are not eligible).

IMTECH is a multidisciplinary institute with excellent research facilities, state of the art computational and library facilities, and faculty with interests in many different areas of modern biology and biotechnology (please visit our website for information on different areas and faculty activities). During this intake, openings may be available in the subjects illustratively mentioned below. Further details will be available to those appearing for the walk-in interview(s), which will be conducted, for each candidate, subject to the fulfillment of the required essential qualifications.
