Dr.S.Rajoo Krishnan

Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Kolkata has invited applications for the Summer Student Research Programme of the Institute for 2021. The Program to be conducted from 17th May 2021 - 16th July 2021 (60 days in this time frame), aims to provide B.Sc., M.Sc., B.S., M.S., B.Tech., and B.E. students of Institutions or Universities across the world an opportunity of exposure to a research environment by associating them with one of the Research Groups of IISER during the summer vacation.

This will be a fully online summer research program. A student will be guided by her/his guide via some suitable online platform. There will be no experimental project this year for the summer project. Only theoretical projects can be carried out if a student and a guide agree to do so. KVPY students are especially encouraged to apply. There will be NO fellowship for this summer for the students who do not have external funding. Any student who decides to join the project should agree to devote at least 5 to 6 hours a day for the project work for 60 days. Upon completion of the internship, if a student submits the project report to the supervisor and the supervisor finds the report is worth a summer project, then the student will be provided a certificate. The certificate will be sent via email.

One may select maximum two faculty members in order of preference in the application form. The list of faculty members available for guiding summer interns via online mode is given at

The application can be submitted online at this link by 6 pm on 5th May 2021. A list of selected candidates will be published on 12th May 2021.
