Designation/Position- Long Term Visiting Students Program

International Centre for Theoretical Sciences, Bengaluru invites application for Long Term Visiting Students Program for eligible candidates

About-  The idea to create a centre such as the ICTS was born in 2001, after the successful completion of the Strings 2001 conference at TIFR Mumbai and a visit to the Infosys Campus in Bangalore in February 2001, which happened at the insistence of Edward Witten who was keen to visit the ‘temples of modern India’. The former boosted our confidence based on our achievement in fundamental physics and the latter provided confidence that institutional infrastructure and management of the highest international quality is possible in India. This combination of the highest quality science within a modern state of the art campus, managed along modern management lines inspired the basic idea of the ICTS. What made ICTS unique in India is that it was to be an international science hub that would transform the ways of doing scientific research and advanced science education in India. I began by looking for private funds but in 2004 David Gross gave a new impetus to the creation of the ICTS by suggesting a way out of my fumbling efforts to find support from private sources. Applications are open for Long Term Visiting Students Program.
