The Computer and Communication Sciences Division (CCSD) invites applications for visiting / postdoctoral positions from bright candidates who have recently completed a PhD in Computer Science, Electronics, Mathematics, Statistics, or related areas. Candidates who have submitted their PhD thesis and are awaiting a degree may also apply. If a fellowship is offered to such a candidate, the continuation of the fellowship beyond the period for which it is initially offered will be contingent upon successful completion of the PhD.
This is a rolling advertisement against which applications will be reviewed four times a year. The application deadline for the first, second, third and fourth reviews are 31st March, 30th June, 30th September and 31st December, respectively. The Institute will make every effort to inform applicants about its decision within 1 month of the deadline.
The job will require carrying out high level research work in the applicant's area of interest and/or teaching one or more courses at ISI. Collaboration with one or more faculty members working in a unit of CCSD is highly encouraged.
The fellowship is usually offered to a selected candidate for a maximum of one year, with the possibility of renewal for one more year, subject to satisfactory performance and funding availability.
- A one page research proposal, preferably prepared in collaboration with a faculty member at ISI. No endorsement letter or signature is necessary, but the name(s) of the faculty member(s) with whom the applicant wishes to work should be clearly mentioned. The proposal may involve more collaborators from inside or outside of ISI, if necessary.
- A curriculum vitae, which must include date of birth, academic qualifications, job/professional experience, if any.
- A list of publications.
- The proposed period of the visit, and the centres where the candidate is willing to be located.
