Raman Research Institute (RRI) Bangalore, provides Pancharatnam Fellowships for young researchers in India for pursuing research in Astronomy and Astrophysics, Chemistry, Physics subjects .The fellows must have the demonstrated ability to conduct original and independent work. Only a limited number of Pancharatnam Fellowships are available.

Pancharatnam Fellows are expected to be able to work independently at the Raman Institute and have the academic freedom of choice in research area and collaboration.

RRI values interactions and does not desire that members work in isolation. Participation in the academic activities of the Institute and collaboration with other research staff is encouraged. Many of the research groups are engaged in experimental activities and opportunities may exist for resident research fellows to participate. The appointments do not entail any teaching responsibilities.

Research areas : Astronomy and Astrophysics (Cosmology and Galaxy Formation, Normal and Active Galaxies, Clusters of Galaxies, The Galaxy & the Interstellar Medium, The Intergalactic Medium, Neutron Stars and Pulsars,Polarization and Geometric Phases ); Chemistry (Synthesis and Characterization of Liquid Crystals,Chemistry of Surfaces and Interfaces); Light and Matter Physics (Bose Einstein Condensation, Laser Cooling & Trapping of Atoms, Ultra-cold Molecules, Propagation of Light in Random Media, Quantum Optics and Quantum logic, Nonlinear Optics of Nanomaterials, Ultrafast Phenomena, Intense Laser Field Interactions); Signal Processing, Imaging and Instrumentation(Radio and X-Ray Astronomy, Liquid Crystal Displays);Soft Condensed Matter (Liquid Crystals, Amphiphilic Systems, Colloids, Polymer Physics, Surface Science, Experimental Biological Physics) and Theoretical Physics (Condensed Matter & Statistical Physics, Classical & Quantum Gravity, Gravitational Waves, Physics in Biology and Differential Geometry in Physics).


These Fellowships are available for three years . The Fellows will be paid a Fellowship, between Rs.50,000 and Rs.55,000, depending on their experience. They will also be provided with accommodation and partial assistance with relocation.

Eligibility Criteria :

This fellowship is usually offered to applicants who have completed at least one postdoctoral period after their doctorate. Applicants have professional research interest and proven track record in areas with significant overlap or association with the ongoing and envisaged activities at the Institute so that scientific interactions and collaborations take place.

Selection Procedure

The candidate may be invited to visit the Institute and give a seminar and interact with the research faculty at the Institute, as part of the selection process.

How to apply

Applications for Pancharatnam Fellowships are always welcome and there are no closing dates. Offers are normally made in mid-February and mid-August. The processing time for applications is between four to six months.

Candidates should submit

(a) Curriculum Vitae

(b) List of Publications

(c) A resume detailing their previous research and other academic activities

(d) A statement outlining their anticipated research activities while at the Raman Institute (In the case of Pancharatnam Fellows, the selection would be substantially weighted by their research proposal for the work that they aim to do at RRI)

(e) Three letters of reference from people familiar with your work to be sent directly to director@rri.res.in. The letters of reference should reach us within three weeks from the date of application. Such letters will be made available to only those involved in decision making.

Applicants may inform referees that RRI anticipates receiving considered comments, foremost, on the suitability of the candidate for a fellowship at RRI; additionally, on the demonstrated ability and potential for independent comprehensive work – both in identifying new research problems and taking ideas to conclusion. RRI would like to know how long the referee has known the applicant and in what capacity. RRI would like to have the comments of the referee on the track record and ability of the candidate to interact and communicate effectively with peers, including comments on the experience of the referee in their interactions with the candidate and an assessment on whether the candidate might be able to adapt comfortably to living conditions prevailing in India and at RRI.

Applications and supporting letters should be in soft copy. The preferred format is PDF files. To avoid confusion all application files should be attached to a single email message. These may be sent to director@rri.res.in
