Regular research staff of the Institute is expected to primarily engage in independent research in basic science and, additionally, participate in activities that promote the academic environment of the Institute.

The Raman Research Institute values interactions: collaborations with colleagues, collaborations with researchers in other institutions in India and overseas, and participation in the academic activities of the Institute are encouraged. Opportunities exist for supervision of short-term visiting students as well as Ph.D. students. Opportunities exist for proposing new experiments, the setting up of research laboratories, and participation in the many ongoing experimental activities. The appointments do not entail any teaching responsibilities; however, participation in teaching is encouraged. The salary scale would depend on experience and current status. Assistance with relocation will be provided.

To apply, please send (a) a Curriculum Vitae, (b) List of Publications mentioning your 5 best publications (c) a resume detailing previous research activities and (d) a statement containing future research plans. It is advised that applicants familiarize themselves with the current research activities at the Institute, including experimental endeavors, while formulating their application. Additionally, please arrange for three letters of reference from people familiar with your work to be sent directly to
director@rri.res.in.

We prefer to receive applications and supporting letters in soft copy. The preferred format is PDF files. To avoid confusion all application files should all be attached to a single email message. These may be sent to director@rri.res.in

Applications should be sent to:
