The Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai invites applications from meritorious and eligible candidates for its Summer Research Program for the year 2020.

IMSc has a limited program for highly motivated bachelors and masters students interested in research in the areas of Theoretical Physics, Mathematics, Theoretical Computer Science and Computational Biology to visit the Institute over their summer vacation. In addition, IMSc also accepts students through the summer program organized by the joint Indian Academies of Science.


To apply for our summer programs please follow the instructions for the respective fields:

  1. Theoretical Physics
  2. Mathematics
  3. Theoretical Computer Science
  4. Computational Biology

This is a limited program, depending on the availability of infrastructure and faculty advisors. We typically select about 25 students across disciplines although this number varies a bit from year to year. These visits typically span 6-8 weeks during the summer (May-July). There is also a provision for a 4-6 month visit, typically during January-April or August-November for extended project work.


Selected students will be paid 2nd class round trip train fare plus Rs.200 per diem. Accommodation will be provided in the hostel during summer, subject to availability. Since our ability to provide accommodations is often limited, we suggest that students also explore alternative possibilities for a stay in Chennai. Accommodation will not be provided for longer visits.


Students currently in their pre-final or final year of BSc/ BE/ BTech or first-year MSc/ME/MTech or equivalent with a good academic record are encouraged to apply through IMSc’s formal application process.
