Harish Chandra Research Institute conducts the visiting Students Program (VSP) in Physics for which students in M.Sc, B.Tech and final year B.Sc programmes are eligible.
Selected students would work in some area of physics under the guidance of a faculty member or a postdoctoral fellow. At the end of the project the students are expected to present a seminar on their work.
|Period of Visit||Period of Application|
|January – April||July 1 – October 31|
|May – August||November 1 – February 28/29|
|September – December||March 1 – June 30|
Visiting Students are expected to stay for a period of at least four weeks during any time of the year which is mutually convenient. There are a large number of applicants in summer, and few advisers, so your chances are better if you apply during some other time of the year.
The selection is based on the student’s academic record and letters of recommendation. It also depends on the availability of a faculty member here to guide the student during the proposed period.
The selected students will be paid to and fro (II class sleeper) rail fare, provided accommodation on campus, and paid a stipend to cover local expenses.
Interested students should apply online here.
Applicants must mention if they are eligible for KVPY, INSPIRE, Academies or any other similar fellowships. If the applicant is selected and is a recepient of any fellowship, HRI will not cover any expense that the fellowship covers. This will, however, not have any bearing on their selection for the VSP.
The student should arrange at least one letter of recommendation to be sent to the address firstname.lastname@example.org.
