JEST 2010 is conducted for selecting candidates to be interviewed for admission to Ph. D. Programs in Physics / Theoretical Computer Science in these institutions in the country.
JEST Exam 2010 invited applications from motivated students, with consistently good academic record, for appearing in JEST Exam 2010 leading to enrolment in a Ph. D. Program in Physics (including various inter - disciplinary research areas in Physics) / Theoretical Computer Science, at any of the 20 premier participating institutions.
JEST 2010 score forms an important component in the selection of candidates for the Ph.D. Programs in these institutions.
JEST 2010 Eligibility
Students who expect to complete their final examination by August 2010 are also eligible to apply.
JEST Exam 2010 Minimum Qualifications & Selection Procedures:
JEST Exam 2010 Ph.D. Program (Physics):
M.Sc. in Physics or M.Sc. / M.E. / M.Tech. in related disciplines. Candidates with M.Sc. in Mathematics and B.Tech (in Engg Physics / Applied Physics / Post B.Sc. Hons only) will also be considered at IIA.
Graduates with a B.E. or B.Tech. will also be considered at IISc, IMSc, IUCAA, JNCASR, NCRA, RRI, IISER Mohali, IISER Pune and SNBNCBS. At IPR candidates should have a Masters degree in Physics, Engineering Physics, Applied Physics, etc. with at least 55% aggregate.
Talented final year B. Sc. Graduates will also be considered for pre - selection at IUCAA.
JEST Exam 2010 Ph.D. Program (Theoretical Computer Science):
M.Sc. / M.E. / M.Tech. / M.C.A. in Computer Science and related disciplines, and should be interested in the mathematical aspects of computer science. Talented B.Sc. / B.E. / B.Tech. graduates will also be considered for integrated M.Sc. - Ph.D. Program.
Integrated M.Sc. - Ph.D. Program
At HRI, candidates with a Bachelor's degree will also be considered for the integrated M.Sc. - Ph.D. Program in Physics.
At IMSc, graduates with B.Sc. / B.E. / B. Tech. degree will also be considered for admission to M.Sc. (by Research) Program in Physics and Theoretical Computer Science, as part of an integrated Ph.D. Program.
At SNBNCBS, graduates with B.Sc. (Physics) / B.E. / B.Tech. degree will be considered for the integrated Post - B.Sc. - Ph.D. Program in subject areas mentioned above.
At IIA, graduates with B.Sc. (Physics / Mathematics) / B.E. / B.Tech. degree will be considered for the integrated M.Sc. - Ph.D. Program in subject areas mentioned above.
JEST Exam 2010 Integrated M.Tech - Ph.D. Program at IIA
At IIA, graduates with M.Sc. (Physics / Applied Physics) / B.E. / B.Tech. degree will be considered for the integrated M.Tech - Ph.D. Program in subject areas mentioned above. Details of the program can be found on the IIA webpages.
Mere qualifying in JEST 2010 does not entitle one to get a Research Fellowship. Using the JEST 2010 results, each institute will call a limited number of candidates for its further selection procedure depending on its requirements.
All candidates selected after interview will receive Research Fellowship from the respective institutes.
