School of Biological Science (NISER)

Biological Science
Biological Science

Understanding biology and its complex processes is key to understand nature and its creativity. The knowledge thus obtained helps one to gain better insights about diverse organisms (uni- and multi-) at different levels. Such studies help address questions on evolution, co-existence, survival, defense, growth, resistance and pathophysiology. To achieve this objective, the discipline requires a coherent involvement of researchers and academicians from other disciplines of science and humanities to accordingly shape its endeavor.

The School of Biological Sciences (SBS) is one of the major schools @ NISER established in September 2007. Since its inception, SBS has been involved in mixing and imparting traditional wisdom with modern technology by developing a research programs along with a vibrant teaching curriculum. SBS promotes scholarly and innovative thinking to conduct cutting edge research in diverse areas ranging from molecular to organismic biology. To facilitate the process, the school offers 5-year integrated MSc Programme, PhD Programme and Post-Doctoral Programme to motivate and train students. SBS aims to establish as a center of excellence with its efforts grown up rapidly and signs of its achievements are being noticed at national and international levels in terms of work and student placements. To further strengthen the SBS research program, an Integrated PhD program initiative is under progress.

Chemical Science

Chemistry as a subject has considerable impact on our everyday lives and on other scientific disciplines. The aim of the School of Chemical Sciences at NISER, is to impart high quality undergraduate and postgraduate level of knowledge to students coupled with cutting edge research activity by the faculty and the students of the school. In addition to traditional organic, inorganic, physical and theoretical chemistry areas, the school embarks on teaching and research activity in the interface areas of Biology, Material Sciences and Medicine. The teaching philosophy at NISER is not only to impart high quality training to students to make them talented and motivated scientific personnel but also to inculcate human values and concern for societal needs and environment. The School of Chemistry offers one of the best integrated M. Sc. Programme and the syllabus is designed not only to teach basic principles but also to have hands on practical experience by doing research projects as a part of the curriculum. The School of Chemical Sciences has started Ph.D. Programme since Jan 2010 to take up research problems in frontier areas of Chemical Sciences. Recently Post-Doctoral Programme has also been introduced

School of Earth and Planetary Science NISER

School of Earth and Planetary Sciences, NISER is a unique research-driven academic center in India that has been established to emerge and excel in high quality and interdisciplinary scientific research works in Planetary Sciences, Earth Sciences, and Atmospheric-Ocean Sciences. This school is different since it envisions to provide the best unique opportunities and freedom to better serve and enjoy the academic cum research life
The focus of this school is three broad and multidisciplinary areas: (1) Planetary Sciences that will cover major sub-areas of Solar System and planetary formation, planetary surface and interior processes, planetary and exoplanetary atmosphere, astrochemistry and astrobiology, planetary astronomy and astrophysics, small bodies and meteorites, and exoplanetary sciences; (2) Earth Sciences that will cover major sub-areas of geosciences to better understand Earth’s surface and interior processes, geochemistry, geochronology, geophysics as well as early Earth history; (3) Atmospheric-Ocean Sciences that will cover major sub-areas of atmospheric, ocean, and climate sciences and their implications to the natural and Earth System Sciences as well as current trends in climate change

School of Humanities and Social Science NISER

The utility of Liberal Arts in Science, Technology, Engineering , Mathematics (STEM)education is one that is generally decided in terms of imparting ‘values’ to students. The idea is to ensure that the education that they receive and the skills that they acquire prepare them for a responsible life, one that empowers them through accountability. While this might be true, to an extent, in varying degrees; a crucial enabler, one that is a powerful source of agency is the idea that students are not passive recipients of a value system deemed socially appropriate.

School of Mathematical Science NISER

mathematics occupies a core intellectual position at NISER, an institution that is striving to be recognized as a Center of Excellence in science education and research in basic sciences. The School of Mathematics was established as a core department of the NISER along with other three Schools from the very beginning of NISER in 2007. It is growing rapidly and is now functioning in full swing. Currently, the school offers masters Programme (5yr integrated)

School Of Physical Science NISER

Physical Science of NISER
Physical Science

The School of Physical Sciences is in pursuit of excellence in research and in teaching. It is engaged in very active research in the frontier areas. Physics of the macro world and micro world are being vigorously explored.  The School offers the integrated M.Sc., integrated M.Sc.-Ph.D. and Ph.D. Programme in Physics to highly motivated students. Till date 51 students have graduated with integrated M.Sc. Physics degree and 4 students have graduated with Ph.D. degree from the school.

School of Center For Medical and Radiation Physics

Radiology building

It is an applied branch of physics. It deals with application of physics concepts and methods for diagnosis and treatment of diseases. It is a discipline that is concerned with introducing new and more precise techniques into health related investigation and treatment of individual patient. Specifically, for past several decades, ionizing radiation is being used worldwide for the treatment of cancer and diagnosis of the various diseases. In treatment, the goal is to deliver the maximum radiation dose to the tumour and minimum radiation dose to the surrounding healthy tissues for obtaining better treatment outcome. In diagnosis the aim is to obtain better image quality with minimum radiation dose. Medical physics is the branch of science that mainly deals with the applications of ionizing radiation in health care through radiotherapy, diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine and the associated radiological protection.
