IISER Thiruvananthapuram PhD Admissions

Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Thiruvananthapuram has invited online application for the admission to PhD Programme which is scheduled to be started on January 2018. IISER Thiruvananthapuram (which is also known as IISER Kerala) have invited applications from highly motivated students for three areas; Biological Sciences, Chemical Sciences and Physical Sciences. The detailed information about IISER Thiruvananthapuram PhD programme is available on the official website of the institute.

IISER Thiruvananthapuram is one of seven IISERs, institutes established by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, to bridge the gap between teaching and research at the undergraduate science level in the country.

Shortlisted candidates'details will be announced on the Institute's website http://www.iisertvm.ac.in on October 20, 2017. Interview for the short-listed candidates in Biological Sciences/Chemical Sciences/Physical Sciences will be held from 20- 24th November 2017.
