Ashoka University has recently launched its Natural Sciences program including Physics and Biology, in the current academic year 2017-2018. We aim to teach biology as a continuum of physics and chemistry to appreciate it as an interdisciplinary science. Our biology curriculum is based on key concepts that capture both unity and diversity of living systems.
All faculty at Ashoka are expected to teach as well as pursue high-quality research. State-of-the-art research facilities and generous seed money would be made available for all faculty. Research positions at Ashoka with faculty will be fully funded - either internally or through external fellowship schemes. In the coming years, we aim to recruit additional faculty to strengthen our research in both core (e.g. ecology and evolution, genetics, cell biology and biochemistry) and multidisciplinary (e.g. immunology, biophysics, computational and mathematical biology) research areas of biology.
