ICMR-NIN is a recognised centre for advanced training by many universities. Many of the NIN scientists are recognized guides with reputed Universities. For students desirous of pursuing Ph.D. at NIN under the guidance of NIN scientists it is mandatory to qualify in the National Eligibility Test [NET] for Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) conducted by Government agencies like ICMR, UGC, DBT, DST, CSIR etc. Students can register with the universities that recognise NIN as study centre and pursue their research. Candidates who qualify only for Lectureship are not eligible to apply for the Ph.D. program. Guidance is offered in various areas of research such as (but are not limited to) – nutrition, nutritional biochemistry, clinical studies, epidemiology, food chemistry, food safety, microbiology, molecular biology, social and behavioural sciences and biostatistics.

Currently, admissions to the Ph.D. program are done by posting the advertisement on the NIN and ICMR websites. Scientists who require a graduate student in a particular discipline/subject shall post the advertisement with the essential qualifications needed for the project. Interested candidates may go through the websites regularly and apply against a vacancy as and when it is posted.
