School of Physical Sciences and School of Humanities is not inviting fresh applications this time. Admissions into these two schools will be open only for candidates who arealready short listed in summer (refer to the list available on the website). 

1. Eligibility School 

Minimum Educational Qualifications 

Biological Sciences 60% or equivalent GPA in Masters or M. Tech or M. Pharm in any branches of Agricultural Sciences, Biology, Life Sciences, Pharmacy (any specialization), Veterinary Sciences, Computer Sciences, Bioinformatics and Biotechnology. Students with Master’s degree in Physics, Chemistry or Mathematics having interest in pursuing a career in Biology are also encouraged to apply. 

2. Requirement of Qualifying in National Level Examinations for pursuing Ph.D program 

School of Biological Sciences–Candidates should have qualified at least one of the National Level Examinations i.e. CSIR-UGC-NET (JRF) /DBT/ICMR and be eligible to receive fellowship from these agencies valid for the academic year 2020-2021 and must be financially supported from a scholarship / fellowship from CSIR-UGC NET (JRF)/DBT/ICMR during their PhD program at NISER.

(a) The cut off marks for national examination such as GATE/JEST/NBHM/CSIR-UGCNET etc will be further decided by each School for the relevant subject area. (b) Those who have appeared for CSIR-UGC-NET examination held recentlyin 2020and awaiting results may also apply in all Schools (except for School of Mathematical Sciences).However, such candidates, if shortlisted have to produce the qualifying mark statement of CSIR-UGC-NET (LS or JRF) examon the date of Ph.D written test / interview failing which his/her candidature will be rejected automatically.
