TIFR's Centre for Applicable Mathematics is a unique centre of research, with the faculty working in both pure and applied areas of mathematics. Every year we offer summer internships to several undergraduate and graduate students from around the country to work with faculty on various research projects culminating sometimes in new results. These internships typically take place during the summer, though it is possible to have them at another time of the year. You may discuss the options once you are selected. The aim of this internship is to expose the student to an academic research experience and for the student to work towards problems of importance. The students are expected to have the ability to work fairly independently and to have a strong desire to be problem solvers. At the end of the internship, the students will be required to make a presentation and write a report of their work.
Period of Internship:
Summer internship is typically for a length of 1 or 2 months between May - July of each year, though longer internships and/or other times of the year are possible as well.
