Date: 24 October 2022

TIFR is pleased to introduce a new Ph.D. program, the TIFR Interdisciplinary Programme in the Physics of Life (TIFR- PoL), for students with a background in physics, engineering, and computer science.

Living systems present some of the most challenging problems in science. For example, the origin of life, the evolution of complexity, and the functioning of the brain. Ideas from quantitative disciplines are becoming indispensable to biology.

The programme will include foundational courses in soft and active matter physics, data sciences, modern experimental methods, and biology.

Students will have the opportunity to work with participating research groups across multiple TIFR Centres.

How to apply?

For eligibility and application procedure please see the TIFR-PoL website: https://pol.icts.res.in/

Applications will be accepted starting from March 2023, after  the  results  of GATE/UGC-CSIR tests are released.
