Admissions PhD programme in Physics for Academic Year 2023-24

Department of Physics, RKMVERI, Belur Main Campus is inviting applications for admission to PhD programme in Physics.


  1. Admission notice updated on 02 August 2023.
  2. Applications are continuously accepted. They will be reviewed as per the convenience of the faculty-members.

Areas of Research:

  1. Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics: Various aspects of ergodicity violations in quantum systems using numerical techniques such as Exact Diagonalization.
    Note: Candidates are expected to be familiar with basic and advanced condensed matter physics at the Master’s level and have a strong inclination towards numerical computation.
  2. Theoretical High Energy Physics: Aspects of Quantum Gravity: Formal aspects and physical implications of quantisation of systems living in some model quantum spacetimes. Formulation of gauge theories in the framework of Noncommutative Geometry and physics of Standard model and beyond.
  3. Particle Physics and Phenomenology:  Study of physics of the Standard Model and beyond, Collider Physics.
  4. Physics of Brain Organization: Investigates the physical organization principles of brain structure and functions in health and how these organization principles change in different diseases using cutting-edge brain imaging technologies and novel signal modeling approaches. Interested candidates may refer to and they are also encouraged to contact
  5. Quantum computation and information: Quantum Algorithms, Quantum Information Theory, Quantum Communication and Quantum Networking.

Eligibility Criteria:

  1. The applicant should have a good academic record throughout, with at least 60% marks in both B.Sc. (Physics Major/Hons.) and M.Sc. (Physics) examinations from any recognized University or Institute of the country. SC/ST candidates will enjoy a 5% concession in the minimum eligibility of marks.
  2. Age limit: Below 28 years on the date of application.
  3. The applicant must have either qualified in CSIR-UGC NET(JRF) /GATE /JEST /equivalent national level examination with Research Fellowship allowing entry into PhD or must have the DST-INSPIRE fellowship.
