One paper copy of the application should be sent by postal mail to: Director, National Institute of Biomedical Genomics, Netaji Subhas Sanatorium (T.B. Hospital), 2 nd Floor, P.O.: N.S.S., Kalyani 741251, West Bengal, INDIA.

NIBMG Fellowship

Objective: To promote the goals of the Institute and to facilitate re-entry of scientists of Indian origin working abroad.

Eligibility: Applicants for this Fellowship should possess Ph.D., M.D., or an equivalent degree relevant to biomedical genomics, with an outstanding track record reflected in publications and other professional achievements. Applicants must not have affiliation to an institution in India. Awardees will carry out their scientific research in NIBMG.

Applicants who have contributed to the understanding of genetics of human diseases using phenotype information and biospecimens collected directly from patients and families, as opposed to in vitro work to obtain mechanistic views of action of genes and proteins, will be given preference. Preference will also be given to applicants with expertise and publications in statistical/computational human genomics.


Emoluments and Duration: Each NIBMG Fellow will receive a consolidated fellowship of Rs. 75,000 per month and a contingency grant (not exceeding Rs. 500,000 per annum) linked to a project to be proposed by the applicant at the time of application.
