General Advice


  •  This is the monsoon season in the area, and we may get very heavy rains. So please carry an umbrella or rain-coat and rain-friendly shoes/sandals. 
  • Being a somewhat tropical place, mosquitoes are ubiquitous. It is important to minimize being bitten to the extent possible. So please carry your favorite repellant. When outside at dusk appropriate clothing that covers your limbs is advised, but something that is not too thick considering the warm weather. 



Additional Information

For people who have indicated that they will need accommodation, we will provide the same. Since the response was overwhelming, and we are trying to accommodate as many people as possible, we can only provide shared accommodation. 

For people who have indicated that they will need travel allowance, we will reimburse your AC 3-tier train ticket (2nd AC for postdocs) from the place of your Institution to Chennai and back (direct route). Please retain your original ticket for the incoming leg to submit when you are here, along with a copy of your return ticket. 

Some notes: 

  • a) Details regarding accommodation and logistics will be displayed on the FHEP Webpage, end of November
  • b) Accommodation will only be provided between 9th - 14th December (or a subset). If you wish to stay outside of this duration, you are requested to make your own arrangements.
  • c) You are requested to make your own transport arrangement from the train station to your place of accommodation. Information on "Reaching IMSc" is now provided at the FHEP Main WebPage in the "General Information" menu. 

Please monitor the FHEP webpage regularly for instructions, information, program details, etc.  We look forward to welcoming you at IMSc!  


Fresh Applications are now CLOSED.

For people not in the list, we regret very much that we were unable to accommodate you this time. The number of applications was three times as much as we had anticipated, and we are already stretching our resources very thin in order to accommodate this many.
