The Department of Physics in the School of Natural Sciences at SNU is an active and growing research center with focus in the fields of experimental and theoretical condensed matter physics, nanotechnology and development of novel materials for energy and environmental applications, and in experimental and theoretical particle physics. It offers a vibrant and rigorous graduate program drawing on its many strengths: • It is a part of the SNS which encourages and facilitates interdisciplinary research activities. • Many of the faculty members have worked in some of the leading international research institutes. Some of them are part of large international research collaborations. • The department encourages collaborative research with industry and some of the faculty members are exploring joint research program with leading technological companies.

Eligibility: Candidate should have a masters degree in science or engineering with a minimum of 60% marks (first class) or an equivalent grade point. For a candidate having a 4-year BS/ BTech. or an M.Tech. degree in engineering, the norm may be relaxed if s/he can demonstrate sufficient mastery of the fundamentals through written tests, interview, etc. These criteria may be relaxed further for candidates having a valid score in any one of the following National Examinations: CSIR-UGC NET-JRF, GATE-JRF or JEST.
