January 7-8, 2012 Postdoc-Director Satellite Meeting
January 8-11, 2012  Young Investigator Meeting
Location:  Lonavala, Maharashtra

Application deadline has past



The Fourth Young Investigator Meeting provides a platform for India's best young life science researchers and post-doctoral fellows interested in pursuing careers in India to meet one another and to interact with renowned international and Indian scientists and science policy makers. The program features scientific talks and posters, with a unique focus on mentorship, as senior scientists from India and abroad shared their experiences and lead panel discussions on strategies for scientific success. The 2012 meeting also will have a satellite meeting for postdoctoral fellows to meet institute directors and chairs to learn about job opportunities in India.

For YIM 2012, we will have talks and discussions about how the physical sciences can be integrated into biology, since this interface holds great promise in biology and constitutes a potential strength of Indian science.  We encourage applicants with interest in physics/computation/biology to apply.  However, this will not be an exclusive theme, and we welcome applicants from all areas of biology (eg. ecology to molecular biology), as in prior years.

Keynote Talks: M.K. Bhan, Secretary, Dept. of Biotechnology
  Venki Ramakrishnan, Nobel Laureate from Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge
  J. Michael Bishop, Nobel Laureate from University of California San Francisco
