Summer Research Programme
The Institute has a limited programme for highly motivated bachelor’s and master’s students interested in doing work in computational biology to visit the Institute. This is typically for any 6 weeks in the 2 months during the summer (May-July).
Students currently studying in their pre-final or final year of BSc/BE/BTech or the first year MSc/ME/MTech or equivalent (any subject) with a good academic record are encouraged to apply.
Our interests are varied, and applicants should check the Computational Biology page for more details on our interests, which include
- biophysics of membranes and biomolecules
- protein structure and modelling
- systems biology
- biomolecular and signalling networks
- biological sequence analysis and bioinformatics
- computational neuroscience
- cardiac dynamics
- epidemic modelling
- evolutionary and population biology
- theoretical ecology
This is a limited programme, depending on the availability of infrastructure facilities and faculty guides.
We are likely to select at most 3-4 students
