Summer Research Programme - Computational Biology

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 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

This is ONLY a summer research programme; those interested in joining IMSc as doctoral students should see the Doctoral student selection page
