Training Programmes

RCB inducts post-graduate science students from various universities/institutions/colleges of repute for research and training to carry out dissertation/project work towards partial fulfilment of their post-graduate degrees. Selected candidates undergo training under the supervision of members of RCB faculty wherein they learn to conduct their own research project in collaboration with other group members. Trainees get a realistic experience of several facets of conducting modern biological research and embarking on a research career.

The training programme is typically of six-months duration starting in January and July every year. Applications for the two sessions are usually received in Oct/Nov and Mar/Apr through an on-line link on the RCB website. The number of student trainees selected in each session varies based on the available vacancies. RCB does not provide any accommodation to the trainees due to infrastructure constraints. The students are expected to make their own accommodation arrangements for the entire period of the training.

RCB also provides short-term training opportunities (2-3 months) to students sponsored by KVPY, INSPIRE, Summer Research Fellowship programme sponsored by Science Academies (INSA, IAS, NASI) etc. Direct applications are NOT considered for the Short-term training program.
