DBT calls for letter of intent under Biotechnology Career Advancement and Re-orientation Programme for Women Scientists


The program aims at providing support for Research project grants to women scientists

By Team ABLE

To enhance the participation of Women Scientists in Biotechnology Research, the Department of Biotechnology has invited the Letter of Intents (LOIs) under the BioCARe scheme for women scientists.

The program is targeted towards Career Development of employed/unemployed women scientists. The scheme is open for all areas of Life Science / Biotechnology (including agriculture, veterinary science and medicine). Age limit for application has been kept as 55 to ensure maximum impact.

The program aims at providing support for Research project grants to women scientists (employed & unemployed) for whom it is the first extramural research grant (Women Scientists who have received any earlier grant from any Government Funding Agency as Principal Investigator are not eligible). The purpose is to build capacities for women scientists so as to help them undertake independent R&D projects. It would also be a good opportunity for Women Scientists who have had a Career Break to get into the main stream of research.

Interested candidates may submit a Letter of Intent through e-PROMIS portal of DBT (http://dbtepromis.gov.in).
Last Date for Submission of LOI – 31st May, 2018
