Nanabhoy Moos Post Doctoral Research Fellowship at IIG, Mumbai, India
for Indian Nationals

Nanabhoy Moos Research Fellowship (NMRF), a Post Doctoral Research
Fellowship, has been introduced for the Indian Nationals in the fond
memory of Dr. Nanabhoy Ardeshir Framji Moos. Dr. Moos, a multi faceted
scientist, was a true Geomagnetician and the first Indian Director
(1896-1919) of the Colaba Observatory. In honour of his significant
original contributions in the fields of Meteorology, Seismology and
Terrestrial Magnetism, Indian Institute of Geomagnetism (IIG)
instituted this prestigious fellowship on 29th October 2014,
commemorating his 156th birth anniversary. IIG inherited the legacy of
the Colaba Magnetic Observatory, set up in 1826, where the first
regular magnetic observation was initiated in the year 1841. Ever
since, an uninterrupted study of the Sun-Earth system has flourished
in this institute. This fellowship tenable at the Indian Institute of
Geomagnetism opens up new avenues for dynamic young researchers
motivated to embark on a challenging research career in Geomagnetism
and allied areas of Geophysics, Atmospheric & Space Physics and Plasma
Physics. IIG by its unique interdisciplinary academic design, offers
unequalled opportunities to understand the dynamically coupled LAIM
(Lithosphere - Atmosphere - Ionosphere - Magnetosphere) system,
thereby facilitating scientific endeavors in several diverse fields of

Application procedure: Applications are received throughout the year,
however, selection of NMRF fellows are done during January and July of
each year.

Tenure: Two years with a possibility of one year extension.

Eligibility: Ph.D. degree in Geomagnetism; Solid Earth Studies; Space
Weather; Climate Science; Modeling of Sun-Earth system processes.

Remuneration: Fellowship of INR 7,20,000 per annum plus HRA and other
benefits. In addition, a research grant of INR 3,00,000 per annum is
provided to facilitate the proposed research. For details, please
