The Department of Chemical Sciences (DCS) was formerly known as Chemical Physics
Group (1967-'97) or Nuclear, Electron Magnetism (NEM) Group (1953-'67). Some of
the current research activities of the department are directly traceable to the
early experimental research in NMR, ESR and Magnetism of molecules and building
instruments for the same. |
The activities of the department have steadily expanded over
the years and diversified to several research areas in the frontiers of chemical
and biochemical sciences. A large number of state-of-the-art techniques, some of
them are home-built, are being used in these research activities.
The department is always on the look out for bright young
scientists from all over the world who could strengthen the existing research
areas and also initiate newer areas of research in the department.
The Department of Chemical Sciences conducts regular graduate
training programme in chemistry for the research scholars of the Institute, and
students can obtain Ph.D. degree in chemistry from TIFR (recognized by the
University Grants Commission). Regular lecture courses and projects in various
subjects are offered in the department to the research scholars of the
The Department organizes regular seminars by members/students
and visitors generally in every Monday evening. Several important National and
International symposia and conferences in various frontier areas are also
organized by the Department.
