Applications for sabbatical/short-term visits are also welcome. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or related areas and should show evidence of exceptional research potential.
The Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB) is well known as one of India's premier engineering institutes, which has produced highly successful researchers and entrepreneurs. IIT Bombay has among the brightest engineering/science students in the country. We take pride in our active and vibrant academic research environment. The Department of CSE (IITB) has not only the largest set of CSE faculty (see faculty list here), but also among the best research minds in almost every area of Computer Science. We provide a nurturing, friendly, and flexible environment for faculty to develop their academic research careers. And last but not least, the quality of living on IIT Bombay campus is invaluable in many ways.
The CSE department and the institute, offer an environment conducive to research, e.g.
In addition to this, it is possible to raise grant money for research through various government and industry sources.

Living on the IIT Bombay campus offers an absolutely unbeatable combination of opportunities - that of living in a city that is the financial, business, and entertainment hub of India, while still enjoying the peace and quiet of a lush green campus nestled between a lake and rolling hills. The campus has all amenities needed for a high quality of living - green, tree-filled and pollution-free surroundings, children's park, swimming pool and various sports facilities: tennis, badminton, squash, volley-ball, basket-ball, hockey, cricket, football, etc. There is an on-campus creche (day-care centre), and two schools.
The campus is vibrant with student-led cultural activities throughout the year. Faculty gets free, premium seating at professional performances during the main cultural festival (Mood Indigo), as well as at the enthralling Performance Arts Functions (student performances). There are additional cultural events (music, dance, theater, movies) throughout the year in the various campus auditoriums.
The campus community is a warm, friendly community of IIT Bombay faculty, staff and students that comes together for events such as Holi and Diwali. The CSE department itself has informal get-togethers, such as faculty picnics and dinners, and faculty-student cricket matches.
If you do step out of the campus, the most energetic city of India invites you to explore it. Local transportation in Mumbai is "legendary", and an impressive network of buses and trains takes you to every corner of the city. IIT Bombay is a 45-minute train ride away from various interesting downtown areas which make for fun day trips. Trekking in the nearby Sahyadris is also a favourite weekend activity of Mumbai-ites (and IITB students) and faculty have several opportunities of joining the students on such treks.
Additionally, if you have family somewhere else in India, there is no city as well connected to the rest of country as Mumbai. Lastly, international travel is convenient since all major international airlines have daily flights in and out of Mumbai.
Institute Post-doctoral (post-doc) fellowships are available in the CSE Department as well as various other academic Departments, Centres, Schools and Inter-disciplinary programs. There is no last date for the applications. The Search Committees meet regularly to consider the applications and arrange for invited seminars and/or interviews as the need arises. Please write to the head of the department with your CV, and information on any faculty members you propose to work with.
