Parvez Guzdar Award - 2016


Applications are invited for Parvez Guzdar Award from Young Indian Scientists below the age of 35 years, who have made significant research contributions in the field of plasma physics and controlled nuclear fusion research.


The Institute for Plasma Research operates this Award from a corpus fund contributed by family and friends of Dr. Parvez Guzdar, whose research contributions spanned a broad spectrum of topics in plasma physics ranging from fundamental studies of plasma instabilities to novel applications and interpretation of experimental phenomena in magnetic fusion devices, laser fusion, space and astrophysical plasmas and various nonlinear systems.


The selected scientist will be awarded cash prize of Rs.50,000/- and citation during the Plasma Science Society of India (PSSI) symposium at M.G. University, Kottayam, Kerala during December, 2013


The application should include Curriculum Vitae of the candidate and a complete list of publication and it should be sent to Prof. Abhijit Sen (email: on or before 20 November, 2016.
