Bose Institute has an established Ph.D. programme in physical sciences, life sciences and interdisciplinary sciences. The institute is a national pioneer in research on astroparticle physics and cosmic rays, foundations of quantum physics and interdisciplinary physics. The Institute also runs a vibrant Integrated M.Sc. - Ph.D. programme. Many of our alumni have become reputed experts in their fields.

The current research takes place in biophysics, complex systems and networks, environmental sciences, condensed matter physics, materials science, high energy physics, astroparticle physics, interdisciplinary physics, quantum physics, quantum information, nuclear physics and radiation physics.

Details about research in physical sciences can be found on the individual faculty pages in the institutional research programmes on (i) basic and applied problems in physical and environmental sciences, and, (ii) complex systems

Prospective candidates interested in pursuing PhD at Bose Institute are encouraged to contact faculty members of their interest directly. They must possess a Master's degree as well as an available fellowship like NET-JRF (CSIR-UGC, DBT, ICMR, etc.), DST-INSPIRE or equivalent.
