Designation/Position- Research Positions at IISc

Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru, India invites applications for Research Positions at IISc from eligible and interested candidates

About- Candidates for Scientist D (two positions) and Senior Postdoc/ Research Associate (one position) must have at least three years experience in the field of experimental quantum optics, optical quantum information processing / optoelectronics, experimental condensed matter physics/ microwave engineering or physics/ micro and nano fabrication, and experimental optics/quantum optics/optical quantum information processing / optoelectronics. Remuneration is Rs. 96720.00/month (consolidated, including HRA). Applications should be sent to and

Research/Job Area- Computational statistics (frequentist and/or Bayesian), statistical learning, network science, agent-based simulation, optimization

Location-  Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru, India


Ph.D. (or submitted Ph.D. thesis) or Master’s degree in any relevant domain, with a focus on one or more of the following topics: computational statistics (frequentist and/or Bayesian), statistical learning, network science, agent-based simulation, optimization.

Skills expected :

  • Expertise in agent-based modeling and simulation
  • Prior experience in the development of agent-based simulation systems in any field – social sciences, transportation, urban systems, epidemiology, biology, etc. (application experience in the mobility/transportation domain is an advantage, but not required)
  • Strong programming skills (Python, C++, databases, R)
  • Ability to gather, process and analyze heterogeneous datasets
  • Strong technical writing and communication skills
  • Independent researchers who can lead project efforts and interact with external stakeholders

Project description: 

  • The project involves development and implementation of large-scale, agent-based model systems for simulating mobility of people and goods, urban metabolism, and other social systems involving multi-scale networks (e.g., neighborhood-scale, city-scale, etc.).
  • The initial focus will be on the development of agent-based (activity-based) travel demand models, relevant data collection, and interfacing with a software development team and stakeholder agencies to develop modeling tools for use by urban planning agencies.
  • The long-term focus will involve integration with, or expansion toward agent-based simulation of a system of systems cutting across multiple domains (transportation, urban growth, energy consumption, pollution dispersion, etc.).
  • The project is funded by the Directorate of Urban Land Transport (DULT) of the Government of Karnataka and Bosch Ltd., through the Foundation for Science Innovation and Development (FSID).
  • IISc is leading the model development efforts, and Bosch Ltd. is leading software development. DULT is involved in model scoping guidance and assisting with gathering secondary data from public sector entities.

The selected candidates will be offered…

  • One of the following positions: Research Scientist, Post-doctoral Research Associate, Project Associate, Project Scientist, JRF, SRF, etc. (based on qualification and experience) in FSID.
  • Salary commensurate with qualification and experience, per IISc’s norms.
  • Note: The initial appointment will be for one year (with a probation period of 4 months), subsequently extendable based on performance and funding.


  • Cover letter
    • A CV with the following information: education, relevant experience and projects (feel free to include links to project sites, reports, GitHub repositories, etc.), list of publications (separate lists for journals and conferences, and for published and submitted papers), and contact information. The CV should also include names and contact information of three individuals who can provide reference letters.
    • Copies of transcripts of graduate and undergraduate education

Last Date for Apply– 10 November 2023

The last date to submit applications is before 10th November 2023. Interviews will occur as and when suitable applications are received.
