Open  project positions: 
Interested candidates can mail me directly for short-term projects of a duration of 3-4 months.  A handsome fellowship will be offered. 
I am looking for doctoral candidates who can either apply through BITSAT or have their individual fellowship (JRF-NET and others). 
I am also looking for post-doctoral candidates who can apply for NPDF (
