The Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA) is an autonomous institution set up by the University Grants Commission (UGC) of India to promote the nucleation and growth of active groups in astronomy and astrophysics at Indian universities. IUCAA aims to be a centre of excellence within the university sector for teaching, research and development in astronomy and astrophysics.
About the Associateship Programme:
One important component of IUCAA’s academic activities is the Associateship Programme, under which a faculty member of an Indian university or a post-graduate department in a college can visit IUCAA for periods of short and long durations over a span of three years to develop his or her interest and expertise in astronomy and astrophysics.
The Associateship Programme has been designed to promote mobility and, to this end, the travel and local living expenses of an associate for these visits will be borne by IUCAA as per its rules. The associate will continue to carry out the existing commitments at his or her parent organisation. However, since IUCAA has been created by the UGC as a field station for these activities, it is expected that those visiting IUCAA under this programme will be treated as on duty by their respective organisations.
3 (three) years, starting from August 1, every year.
