The Centre for Cellular & Molecular Biology (CCMB) training program is open to students from all branches of sciences and open to all Indian Universities/Research Institutes.
It is not a conventional classroom lectures based training program. Instead, each selected candidate/trainee will be assigned to a CCMB staff scientist who will supervise/mentor him/her during the stay.
Each student is expected to execute a small project work under the guidance of the scientist. At the end of the program, student will need to submit a ‘Project Report’ of the work done, and also would be required to make an oral presentation.

Completed application (Hard copy) for the program MUST reach CCMB by 07/02/2019. The names of the selected candidates will be made available on CCMB homepage during the middle of March 2019 (around 15/3/2019).
A committee nominated by the Director, CCMB, selects the trainees. One of the major criteria used in selection is that the selected candidates should represent the Nation-wide coverage of different Indian states (based on the location of their academic institutions, but independent of their birthplace, sex, cast or religion).
‘Statement of purpose’ and the ‘Recommendation/reference Letter’ are other important considerations in the selection of candidates along with the academic record.
Tentative date to join CCMB/the program: 20th May – 3rd Jun 2019 (No candidate will be allowed to join after 3rd June under any circumstance).
The candidates are expected to make their own arrangement for stay in Hyderabad during the training period, though CCMB may consider specific requests only from outstation students, especially girl students for shared accommodation in CCMB housing facility depending upon the availability of vacant flats/space
