Deadline:  2024-09-01

Location:  Bangalore, India

Applications are invited for postdoctoral positions and for the Pancharatnam fellowship at the RAMAN RESEARCH INSTITUTE (RRI), Bengaluru, India.

The theoretical physics group at the RRI has members working actively in General Relativity and Quantum Gravity. We encourage young independent researchers to apply with a background in either of these areas.

Selected Post-Doctoral Fellows will be paid a Fellowship of INR 58,000 to INR 67,000 + appropriate house rent allowance, as admissible, depending on their experience. In the case of successful candidates who are yet to complete requirements for award of the Ph.D. qualification – like, for example, successful defence of the thesis – a research fellowship at a lower rate of INR 48,000 + appropriate house rent allowance as admissible will be paid until completion of such requirements. The maximum duration of the postdoctoral position is 3 years, with annual extensions based on internal assessments.

Post-doctoral Fellows are expected to be able to work independently at the Raman research Institute and have the academic freedom of choice in research area and collaboration: it is not mandatory that they work in any specific research program or attached to specific research staff of the Institute. Nevertheless, it is desirable that applicants have professional research interest and proven track record in areas with significant overlap or association with the ongoing and envisaged activities at the Institute so that scientific interactions and collaborations take place.

The appointments do not entail any teaching responsibilities.

Interested candidates should submit their (a) Curriculum Vitae, (b) List of Publications, (c) A resume detailing their previous research and other academic activities, (d) A statement outlining their anticipated research activities while at the Raman Institute, and (e) Two to three letters of reference from people familiar with your work to be sent directly to pdfscreening[AT] The letters of reference should reach us within three weeks from the date of application.

There is no official deadline for these positions, but the applicants should allow additional delays if a work-visa is required.

We prefer to receive applications and supporting letters in soft copy. The preferred format is PDF files. To avoid confusion all application files should be attached to a single email message. These may be sent to pdfscreening[AT]
