Postdoctoral Opportunities at NCBS/inStem

Attracting the best postdoctoral scientists to a vibrant research environment

NCBS/inStem has a small but vibrant program for researchers who have a PhD degree.  We seek to enhance this program substantially. The purpose of the research program is to bring the best young scientists to a stimulating intellectual environment where the best facilities are available. We expect that this will result in excellent science and the opportunity for maturing to move on to independent positions in the best places in India and abroad.

There are several funding modes for these postdoctoral programs. These programs do not lead to a continuing appointment and have a fixed maximum term.  Applicants will be expected to identify a host laboratory and submit a preliminary application written in conjunction with the host faculty member.

Appointments on all funding modes – regardless of the source of support – will be renewed on a yearly basis and will be contingent on continued support by the host laboratory at NCBS. Renewals will be recommended by the Postdoctoral Committee, which will base its assessment on the Annual Work Report provided by the Fellow, the Annual Work Seminar and independent assessments provided by the laboratory head and one other member of the Faculty at NCBS or member of the Postdoctoral Committee.   If a Fellow’s performance does not meet the scientific standards at NCBS, the institute reserves the right to end the fellow’s appointment regardless of the source of funding.
