Biotechnology Internships in India: Selection Based
#1
This is post no. 1 under the main topic.
Biotechnology Internships in India: Your Search Ends here

It's not uncommon to face the need of 2-6 months internships during the course of one's graduation/degree program. Every B.Tech student is supposed to go for a 2 months training period at the end of second year; and a 6 months major project in the last semester in most of the universities in India. Whereas, the Indian "Educational Market" is full of private institutes and companies that offer "Paid" (Where you need to pay) training programs, it doesn't suit the pocket of many students, who belong to financially weak families. Apart from the money matter, the value and authenticity of such paid trainings isn't considered high, but rather reflects an inability on the part of a student to procure a standard training from an institute/research center of high repute. So, this article is aimed at easing this very problem of the students. I'll be enlisting the names of those institutes/universities/research centers in India that offer summer internships every year, through a structured selection process (and obviously, at most institutes, the internships are Free of Cost, and rather they pay you!).

Here is the list of top and one of the best opportunities for Training in Biotechnology (or Internships in Biotechnology) in India:

1. Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT Delhi), Summer Research Fellowship
I don't think IITs need any introduction to any student in India/Abroad. And IIT Delhi, which is Ranked 1 in India, offers a summer research fellowship program to the students who have completed atleast 2 years of their engineering course. The program is stipend based (Rs 500 per week!) and is open to only those students who rank among top 10 in their class in their respective institutes/universities in India/Abroad.

Application Starts: Dec-January

Deadline: March

Result of Selected Candidates: April

Training Period:
May-July

2. Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras) Summer Research Fellowship
On the same lines as IIT Delhi, IIT Madras also offers Summer Research Fellowship to Biotech Students. A separate announcement can be seen in the departmental web-page of IIT Madras every year (which is removed after selection is complete). I have attached a cached copy of the list of students selected in this year's SRF program. Also there's a link to the departmental webpage. The stipend paid by IIT Madras is Rs 6500/- for 2 months and the training is open to students who have completed 2 years of B.Tech/BSc or are in 1st year of M.Tech/MSc.

Application Starts: Dec-January

Deadline: March

The Institute provides opportunities for outstanding students to carry out project work under the supervision of the Institute’s scientists towards partial fulfilment of their postgraduate degrees (of at least SIX months’ duration). The opportunities are available in two sessions every year: 

session I: July-December
session II: January-June

ELIGIBILITY:

The minimal eligibility criterion for consideration of the requests is First division or an equivalent grade (or at least 60% of aggregate scores) in all major examinations starting from the secondary school examination onwards.

Following procedure should be followed by interested students:
  • Students who are pursuing masters degree (e.g. MSc, MVSc, MTech, integrated masters students in their 4th year etc.) may apply.
  • The requests must be forwarded through the Heads of Departments, and must provide the academic resumes of the recommended student(s) clearly specifying percentage marks obtained at various levels and the subjects covered, as well as the period of proposed project work.
  • Every department can forward a maximum of two requests.
  • Applicants must mention their broad area of interest and/or names of NII scientists s/he would like to work with. If individual names are provided SEVEN names in order of priority may be given. This will help us in choosing the right laboratory for the selected students but there is no guarantee that the student will always get to work with the chosen scientist.
  • Training opportunities can be offered only during the two time periods mentioned.

Applications for January-June slot will be accepted only from 15th August to 15th September and only selected students will be informed by 31st October.
