Emoluments and benefits at IMSc are pegged to levels prescribed by the Indian government and are among the best available at academic institutions in India. In addition, the Institute has a liberal leave and sabbatical policy, is generous with travel support for scientific purposes and is assisted by a proactive and supportive administrative setup. Institute accommodation at the IMSc housing complex “Lilavati” (at Tiruvanmiyur, a few minutes from the seashore and about 4 kilometres from the Institute) is also available for all faculty members. Chennai itself is home to the second longest beach in the world and is one of India’s most livable large cities.
We expect our applicants to have acquired some reasonable measure of international recognition. We value creativity highly and will evaluate your published work accordingly. At an intermediate stage of our evaluation of your application, we usually seek further input from an international group of referees regarding their assessment of your research.
Typically, the interval between your applying to us and our making our decision should range from about 6 months at best to a year, at worst. In exceptional cases, however, accelerating this process for specific candidates whom we value very highly may be possible.
