The National Centre for Radio Astrophysics of the Tata Institute for Fundamental Research (NCRA-TIFR) at Pune, India, invites applications for Jawaharlal Nehru Post-Doctoral Fellowships.
Candidates are required to have at least one year of Post-doctoral Experience before taking up the Fellowship. Appointments are for a maximum duration of two years, with continuations subject to a yearly review.
Research activities at NCRA-TIFR are centered on low frequency radio astronomy, where NCRA-TIFR operates the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT), a major international facility. NCRA-TIFR offers challenging opportunities to work at the frontiers of astronomy and astrophysics, as well as instrumentation and software development. Faculty members carry out research in a wide range of areas, including solar physics, pulsars, active galactic nuclei, the interstellar medium, supernova remnants, the Galactic Centre, nearby galaxies, high-redshift galaxies, fundamental constant evolution, observational and theoretical cosmology, and the epoch of reionization. NCRA-TIFR also operates another large observational facility, the Ooty Radio Telescope (ORT).
Post-Doctoral Fellows at NCRA-TIFR are expected to pursue a vigorous independent research programme. We encourage applicants with backgrounds in radio astronomy, as well as other fields including theory, algorithm research, and observations in other wavebands. We especially encourage applicants whose research interests have potential synergies with radio astronomical studies or engineering activities, or which require a close engagement with the GMRT or the ORT.
The selection of Jawaharlal Nehru Fellows will be carried out by a special committee chaired by the Director, TIFR-Mumbai. At any given time, there will be only 12 Nehru Fellows hosted by TIFR, including all its Centres.
