Ph.D. in Cognitive Science
The mind-brain is termed as the mystery of the century. The research program in Cognitive Science aims to address the scientific and technological advancements in the overlapping areas of Humanities and social sciences, engineering, science and medicine relevant to cognitive science to develop an understanding of the mind-brain for development of technological solutions. Currently, the four thrust areas of the research program are the theory of human intelligence, cognitive marketing, cognitive computing, and artificial consciousness.
Ph.D. in Digital Humanities
IIT Jodhpur is one of the pioneering institutes in the country currently to offer an interdisciplinary doctoral degree in Digital Humanities. The Inter Disciplinary Research Platform at IIT Jodhpur facilitates this doctoral degree programme.This doctoral programme offers unique opportunities to redraw conventional disciplinary boundaries among the humanities, the social sciences, the arts, technology and engineering, and the natural sciences. Doctoral students opting for this program are expected to contribute towards integrating disciplinary approaches of the humanities, liberal arts, social sciences, and computer technologies, with cross-disciplinary theorising and research that can be avant-garde to the field of Digital Humanities. Examples of research emphases may include (but are not limited to): Digital Cultures/ Cultural Practices – Past and Present; Digital Societies; Digital Heritage (Preservation, Conservation, Restoration, Recreation); Thematic Computation Reading of Novels; Multimodal Data Analytics; Digital Epistemologies and Methods. Doctoral research in Digital Humanities shall be premised on project-oriented knowledge production, the practical application of methods, and shall involve interdisciplinary collaboration workflows. In addition to the regular PhD stipend, an additional financial assistance for research may be facilitated on a competitive basis.

Ph.D. in IOT & Application
Internet of Things (IoT) has gained immense interest for applications in smart agriculture, transportation, environment monitoring, healthcare, and smart wearable, Industrial IoT, and many other applications. Sensors are the key components to communicate with surroundings, which have to be both highly sensitive and selective as well. On the other hand, the data collected from sensors have to be analyzed and used for making Processes and Systems smarter. IoT and applications area is a highly multidisciplinary area involving various areas of Materials, Devices, Sensors, Circuits, Communication, and Data Analytics, and their applications in IoT system development.

Candidates of various relevant academic backgrounds with interest in this exciting upcoming area are encouraged to apply for Ph.D. position.

Ph.D. in Quantum Information and Computation
The Quantum Information and Computation (QIC) group at IIT Jodhpur is working towards analyzing classical and quantum correlations from the perspective of a practical interface between quantum optics and quantum information processing. Such correlations occupy a central position in the quest for understanding and harvesting the power of quantum mechanics and fundamentals of quantum information processing. As a group, we are addressing some of the key issues in characterizing multiqubit entanglement. From the applications perspective, the spectrum includes, but is not limited to, quantum key distribution, quantum dense coding, quantum teleportation, quantum cryptography, quantum game theory and quantum secure communication.
For a practical implementation of any quantum information task, it is important to consider the role of noise on the chosen task. The group is interested in the systematic study of quantum information and computation in realistic scenarios, including the effect of ambient noise, using ideas and techniques of Open Quantum Systems. At present, following faculty members are involved in the group,
 1.  Subhashish Banerjee, Department of Physics
 2.   V. Narayanan, Department of Physics
 3.   Atul Kumar, Department of Chemistry
 4.   Kiran K. Hiremath, Department of Mathematics
 5.   B. Ravindra, Department of Mechanical Engineering
 6.   Mahesh Kumar, Department of Electrical Engineering
Applications are invited for Ph.D. positions in Quantum Information and Computation group. Interested applicants may apply through the online Application Submission link.
