 * CONDENSED MATTER PHYSICS: high-Tc super-conductivity, fractional quantum Hall effect, quantum dots, quantum magnetism, liquid He_4, anyons/fractional/anomalous/q statistics, classical clusters, Bose-Einstein condensation, chemisorption and electron dynamics at metal-vacuum and electro-chemical interfaces, phases of vortex matter.

 * STATISTICAL MECHANICS: Glassy dynamics, crystallization, non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, fracture and flow in disordered systems, random and frustrated spin systems, martensites, flux-lattice melting, bio-membranes, molecular motors; A growing general interest in biology related problems.

 * NONLINEAR DYNAMICS: Chaos - classical and quantum, chaos control and synchronization, chaotic computers, solitary waves and solitons, geometrical aspects, applications to low-dimensional spin systems.

 * HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS: Neutrino physics, CP-violation, particle phenomenology, QCD, confinement, quantum field theory, string theory, quantum gravity.

 * MATHEMATICAL PHYSICS: Group theory, quantum groups, non-commutative geometry.


QUALIFICATIONS: A PhD in Mathematics, Theoretical Computer Science or Theoretical Physics with research work done in an appropriate area.

 WHEN ARE SELECTIONS MADE: Selections will be made in February and September every year. For Mathematics see here.
