Post Doctoral Position

 Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra


Applications are invited from highly motivated and eligible candidates for post-doctoral positions at the Cancer Research Institute, ACTREC for the advertised projects. The applicant must have obtained a PhD degree from a recognized University. Those who have submitted their thesis and are awaiting the award of the degree are also eligible to apply. However, such candidates, if selected, will be offered a fellowship equivalent of a Senior Research Fellow until they obtain their degree. The position is for 2 years. The selected candidates will be encouraged to apply for extramural grants under the mentorship of the PIs. 

The upper age limit for the fellowship is 35 years at the time of the submission of the application. Age will be calculated by taking the last date of application. Age relaxation of five years will be given to candidates belonging to SC/​ST/​OBC/​Physically Challenged & Women candidates. For other exceptional candidates, age will be relaxed based on the discretion of the competent authority.

Since this fellowship is meant to bring in the best of candidates outside of ACTREC so that the faculty and the fellow are mutually benefited from new expertise and a fresh perspective, the following conditions apply for the internal candidates:


The work progress of the candidate will be monitored and extension after 1 year will depend on satisfactory progress of the work.
