The different fellowships are as follows:
The fellowship is meant for brilliant scientists and engineers from all over the world to take up scientific research positions in India, especially those scientists who want to return to India from abroad. The fellowships are scientist-specific and very selective. The Ramanujan Fellows could work in any of the scientific institutions and universities in the country and they would be eligible for receiving regular research grants through the extramural funding schemes of various S&T agencies of the Government of India.
We have been receiving large numbers of applications for Ramanujan Fellowship from prospective applicants. This is to bring to your notice of all the applicants that your applications should accompany a nomination certificate by the Head of the organization where you wish to work. In many cases, the nominations are received through individuals, Registrars/ Deputy Registrars/ Under Secretary etc. Since, this is an academic position, the nominations should only send through the Head of the Organization/ University/ Institute or an authorized academic personnel of the Institute/ University/ Organization. For the benefit of the applicants, a sample nomination form is available on the website (http://www.serb.gov.in). In future, only applications received though proper nominations will only be accepted for further processing.
Ramanujan Fellowship are only for those candidates who are doing Post Doctoral abroad and not for the people who already have permanent position in a scientific organization in the country.
