IISER Tirupati PDRF Programme 2020 – Application Details

IISER Tirupati has an active Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship (PDRF) Program to enable highly motivated young researchers to conduct research in the frontier areas of Science and Technology.

Applications are invited twice a year, in April and October, for the appointment of post-doctoral fellows in the various research areas. These positions are open for those with experience of 2 years or less, from the date of award of PhD degree. Those who have submitted thesis and are awaiting award of degree can also apply. Such cases, if selected, will be considered as extended Senior Research Fellows till the degree is awarded.

The Institute may give exceptions in terms of a number of years of experience in case of highly meritorious candidates, with prior approval of the Competent Authority.
Candidates should provide evidence of having carried out high-quality research during or after their Ph. D. program. The award will be initially for one year, with an extension for one more year after a review of performance.

PDRFs have to get associated with a specific research group depending upon the research and facilities /mentorship required to carry-out research.

Fellowship: Rs. 47,000/- p.m + HRA as per GoI rules if the candidate produces the Ph. D.
Certificate. Otherwise, Rs. 35,000/- p.m + HRA as per GoI rules for those candidates whose Ph. D. degree is awaited. However, the candidate must produce a letter from competent authority stating that the thesis has been submitted and the final viva/defence is pending.

The nominal research grant will be available under this program.

Following selection to the IISER PDRF program, applications for competitive postdoctoral
fellowships by the fellow may also be forwarded to DST-SERB or other agencies (DBT-RA, CSIRRA, ICMR etc.) through the Institute. Details of the SERB National Postdoctoral Fellowship (NPDF) are available at http://www./serb.gov.in/npdf.pahp.
