Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences, Kolkata, India have agreed to offer five fellowships annually to young foreign scientists from developing countries who wish to pursue research leading towards a Ph.D in physical sciences.
The fellowships, tenable at the S.N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences in Kolkata, India, will be awarded to young students from developing countries to enable them to pursue studies leading towards a
Ph.D degree in physical sciences.
- Electronic structure and physics of materials
- Soft condensed matter, complex systems and statistical physics
- High energy physics and mathematical physics
- Optics, mesoscopic phenomena and chemical physics Astrophysics Experimental physics: Magnetism, in particular manganites, Birkhaussen
- effect, Mössbauer spectroscopy, superconductivity, mechanical stress-strain relaxation, dielectric spectroscopy in the nano and pico time scales, as well as noise measurements in terms of resistance fluctuation spectroscopy.
- Nano science and technology: Synthesis of nano materials; physical measurements using scaling probe microscopy; mesoscopic phenomena; electronic structure and modelling; nanolithography; nanobiophysics.
- Theoretical chemistry: Density functional theory, quantum fluid dynamics and applications; atoms/molecules under intense or super-intense laser fields; atoms/molecules under strong magnetic fields; quantum chaos; computational quantum chemistry (novel molecules, nanoclusters, biomolecules, drug-DNA interaction modelling); theoretical spectroscopy and relaxation phenomena; simulation studies and non-equilibrium thermodynamics.
Candidates for these fellowships must meet the following criteria:
- be a maximum age of 30 years on 31 December of the application year; * be nationals of a developing country (other than India) and be employed at a university or research institution there;
- hold a Master’s degree in physics, mathematics or physical chemistry.
