IISC Bangalore Integrated Ph.D Admissions 2016
Indian Institute of Science offers offers exciting opportunities to motivated and talented Bachelor’s degree holders with a keen sense of scientific enquiry for pursuing advanced research in frontier areas of Biological, Chemical, Physical and Mathematical Sciences leading to a Ph D degree. Experience shows that students entering this program save nearly a year compared to those who go for a 2 years Master's degree program elsewhere and then join the Institute for a Ph D program. Each year, the Institute admits 42 students (12 in Biological Sciences, 12 in Chemical Sciences, 10 in Physical Sciences and 8 in Mathematical Sciences) under this program. The program consists of flexible course work, an internship-type laboratory training (wherein ample opportunities exist for the candidate to acquire basic experimental skills and familiarity with advanced techniques for research), a research project to demonstrate attainment of a high degree of scientific ability followed by advanced research leading to a Ph D thesis on a specific topic.

Eligibility
Candidates with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology/ Chemistry/Physics/Mathematics under the 10+2+3 system are eligible to apply for admission to the Integrated Ph D program. Candidates with BE/B Tech are eligible to apply to the Mathematical Sciences.

Additional notes
(a) The minimum requirement for admission to the Integrated Ph D program is a FIRST CLASS or and equivalent Grade for the Bachelor’s degree (as declared by the University) as indicated against each department. Refer to Section 3.3 for more details.
(b) The minimum requirement of FIRST CLASS in the qualifying examination is relaxed to PASS CLASS for SC/ST candidates.
(c) Some departments have specific requirements of subjects at the Bachelor’s or 10+2 levels as indicated in Section 3.3. Candidates have to ensure that they meet these requirements and this should be clearly reflected in the Academic profile of the Application Form which is to be enclosed with the data sheet.
(d) Those in the final year of their qualifying examination and awaiting results are also eligible to apply. However, they should have completed all the requirements for the award of the qualifying degree, including all examinations, dissertation projects, viva-voce, etc., by the time of joining, i.e., by the 29th of July 2016.
