What is SERB Overseas Postdoctoral Fellowship 2015-16?

Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB), a Statutory body under the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India is launching SERB Overseas Postdoctoral fellowship (SERB-OPDF).

The Program aims to build national capacity in frontier areas of Science and Engineering, which are of interest to India by providing postdoctoral fellowship for a period of one year extendable to one more year subject to good performance. The applicant should have completed PhD degree in science and engineering not earlier than the preceding two years from recognized institutions in India.

OBJECTIVES
