Dr. Ghosh Roy received his Bachelors and Masters degree from Calcutta University, Kolkata, and his Ph.D. from the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai. He completed his postdoctoral research at Columbia University, NY and University of California, San Diego. During his post-doctoral work he pioneered the use of C. elegans model for axon regeneration research.

Position Available


 Ph.D and Integrated Ph.D applicant:

Our lab is interested in phD candidates. If you are interested, please visit


Postdoctoral Fellow:

Lab is interested in candidates who want to pursue a post-doctoral career. Please send your resume and a cover letter describing your interest in our lab. Also arrange for two references who can comment on your scientific ability.

Although we are open about your background, we are keen on having somebody with background in physics, mathematics and computer science. A PhD in either of these fields will be an added advantage.

I will strongly support/encourage you for your own fellowships. One post-doc will be supported by WellcomeTrust-DBT fund with travel support for meetings and conferences. NBRC also has intramural fund for post-doctoral candidates.


Project Assistant:

Candidates with MSc in either of Physics, Chemistry or Biology can apply.


NBRC accepts summer intern through Indian Academy of Science. Please apply directly to IAS and indicate your lab choice.
