Career Opportunities

CEBS has been set up to establish and sustain a brand institution in the field of basic sciences. Our innovative teaching methods and the emphasis we place on laboratory and project work will help to:

CEBS students undergo very rigorous laboratory work and theoretical courses, combined with visits and exposure to some of our country's premier research institutes, as well as on-going interactions with faculty members from BARC, TIFR, IIT-B, ICT, etc. In their Xth semester, students are required to undergo a semester-long project under the guidance of experts, either in India or abroad. The semester projects undertaken by students of Xth semester in 2018, are:

All this serves to instil a sense of confidence in the students... Don't just take our word for it...ask our existing students!

Organizations like the Department of Science & Technology, the Indian Space Research Organization, the Department of Atomic Energy and its units, Nuclear Power Corporation, the Department of Biotechnology, the Department of Oceanography, Indian Institutes of Technology, etc. feel the need for qualified, motivated, trained human resources for their growing expansion plans. In additions, several institutions like NISER, IISERs and of course, CEBS, look for Faculty and researchers to continue and further enrich their programmes. It is our expectation that CEBS graduates will look forward to filling some of these requirements of our country.

The most promising of our graduates will be strongly encouraged to pursue doctoral studies leading to their Ph.D. degree. Our past students are already pursuing their PhD degree from prestigious institute in India and abroad.

Special opportunity for CEBS undergraduates:

CEBS is pleased to announce that CEBS graduates who secure Cumulative Grade Performance Average (CGPA) of 7.5 or above will automatically be entitled to appear directly before the final Selection Committee of Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) for admission to BARC's Training School. A few of our students are already in BARC and its units working as Scientific Officers.

The Department of Atomic Energy's (DAE) Research & Development activities have burgeoned in the last few years. The BARC Training School prepares young minds for responsible scientific and engineering positions in various units of DAE. Since its establishment, about 7000 young men and women have passed through the portals of the School. They are contributing to all segments of DAE.

The trainees go through an integrated course for one year in different disciplines of science and engineering. The BATC Training School students are taught by scientists and engineers from BARC and other DAE establishments.

After successful completion of one year's training, BARC Training School students are induced into regular R&D positions within the Department of Atomic Energy, in institutions like BARC, IGCAR, VECC, RRCAT, etc.

Special opportunity for CEBS postgraduates:

Those who successfully gain a good doctoral degree from CEBS will automatically be entitled for consideration as a post-doctoral K.S. Krishnan Research Associate of the Department of Atomic Energy. K S Krishnan Associates are guaranteed subsequent absorption in the DAE system.
Applicants with a good doctoral degree from CEBS will be considered on par with those coming from the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research and the Homi Bhabha National Institute.
