To apply for the Biology Ph.D. program, applicants will need to complete an online application form. Online applications should also include a brief statement of research interests (maximum 1 page) and two letters of recommendation. The statement of research interests and recommendation letters should be directly emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Interested candidates should first visit the webpage of the programme and acquaint themselves with the kind of research being pursued at Ashoka before writing the statement of research.
Ph.D. admission will be based on a written test at the Ashoka University campus in Sonepat, followed by a personal interview. However, candidates who have qualified the CSIR/UGC/ICMR/GATE exam will be exempted from the written test, and can directly appear for the interview.
Please note that the written test will assess basic analytical skills and may include +2 level mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology. There is no specified syllabus. We do not provide sample question papers.
Probable examination/Interview Schedule – 4th- 5th January 2019.
