Online interviews  for Post-M.Sc. Admission, session 2022-2023

Theoretical Physics : 31 May 2022 to 03 June 2022

Experimental Physics : 06 June 2022 to 10 June 2022

Biophysical Sciences : 13 June 2022 to 17 June 2022

Lists of candidates for online interview have been published in our website.
The three lists are in three streams – Theoretical PhysicsExperimental Physics and Biophysical Sciences.

The criteria used for making the shortlists are as follows:

Theoretical physics: Ranks up to 150 in JEST or NET or ranks up to 50 in GATE along with 60% and above marks in 10+2 final exam and Graduation.

Experimental physics: Ranks up to 200 in JEST or NET or ranks up to 100 in GATE along with 60% and above marks in 10+2 final exam and Graduation.

Biophysical Sciences : Ranks up to 1000 in GATE along with 60% and above marks in 10+2 final exam and Graduation. 
CSIR,UGC,ICMR,JGEEBILS scores have also been considered.

·     Students are invited to join the Ph D programme of SINP in Physics and Biophysical Sciences starting from August 2022 (2022-23 Session).
·     The curriculum starts with a pre-Ph D course work, called Post-M.Sc. programme.
·     For Physics stream, the Post M.Sc. Courses are channelled through two streams: Theoretical Physics and Experimental Physics.

Session will start from August 2022.

·     Eligibility

Physics: Master’s degree in Physics.

Openings for Ph.D. may be available in the following broad areas:
  • Theoretical Physics: Theoretical high energy physics, non-perturbative quantum field theory, gauge theories, classical and quantum computation, strongly correlated systems, QCD, quantum condensed matter physics
  • Experimental Physics: Nuclear Astrophysics and low energy nuclear reactions, Semiconductor materials and devices, Surface Physics, Nano Science,  Quantum Optics and Cold Atoms, Experimental High Energy at ALICE and CMS, Muon Tomography, Astro-Particle physics, Gravitational waves (LIGO).

Biophysical Sciences: Master’s degree in Physics or Chemistry (with Life Science at 10+2 level)   or    Master’s degree in Life Sciences (with Chemistry and Mathematics at 10+2 level)   or     M.Tech. in Biotechnology (with Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Life Science at 10+2 level).

Openings for Ph.D. may be available in the following broad areas:

Biophysical Sciences Group: Cellular and molecular biology, biophysics & structural biology, synthetic biology, metabolomics, proteomics,spectroscopy.

Students appearing in the final examinations for their Master’s degree during the current academic session may also apply. However, their admission will be made provisional till they successfully obtain their final year mark sheet / Master’s degree certificate in compliance with the cut-off requirement of SINP screening procedure (to be announced later).

·   Application procedure

The eligible students can apply for the programmes only through on-line application (available from mid March 2022)

Further details will be announced in this web page.

·     Selection procedure

Screening will be done based on previous academic records of the applicants, their performances in nation-wide screening tests as mentioned below:

For Physics (Experimental and Theoretical):

  • Joint Entrance Screening Test (JEST)
  • CSIR/UGC NET for JRF in Physics
  • GATE in Physics

For Biophysical Sciences:

  • Joint Graduate Entrance Examination for Biology and Interdisciplinary Life Sciences (JGEEBILS) conducted by NCBS-TIFR.
  • GATE in Life Sciences, Biotechnology, Physics and Chemistry

    A shortlist of candidates will be published in this webpage. The shortlisted candidates will be called for interviews to be held “ONLINE”.

    The shortlisted candidates will be informed by email also.

    Final selection of candidates will be made on the basis of their past performances and interviews.

    Selected candidates will be informed by email and also through announcement in this web page.

    Important Information

    Please note that candidates seeking admission to SINP PhD programs need to apply through on-line application portal with hall ticket number/rank/percentile marks of national level qualification tests like JEST, JGEEBILS, NET, and GATE.


    ·     Fellowships and benefits

    The selected students are admitted to Post M.Sc. as Junior Research Fellow (JRF).

    SINP fellowships for candidates:

    ₹31,000/- p.m. for 1st two years

    ₹35,000/- p.m. for subsequent years

    Tenure: Tenure: 4 years extendible to the 5th year. Yearly renewals and 5th year extensions are subject to satisfactory performances.

    Contingency, HRA, etc. are as per rules.

    For all candidates, limited hostel accommodation will also be available.

    ·     Approximate number of Intake
