NBHM Postdoctoral Fellowships

National Board for Higher Mathematics


Every year, NBHM offers postdoctoral fellowships to selected young mathematicians who have completed their Ph.D. degree in mathematics. The postdoctoral fellowships (PDF) are intended for mathematicians below the age of 35 who have a doctoral degree or equivalent published research work. Persons who have submitted their dissertations for a Ph.D. degree are also eligible to apply.

A candidate can apply for the award of PDF any time. However, applications will be considered twice a year with deadlines of January 01, and July 01 of the year, but for the year 2016, it will, instead of January 01 be April 01.
