Opportunities at IUCAA to contribute towards astronomy education

As you are aware, an Astronomy Centre for Educators (ACE) has been established at IUCAA, with the two main constituent units at present being the Teaching Learning Centre (TLC) for further developing astronomy teaching in the country with an emphasis on the higher-education sector; and the National Resource Centre (NRC) for developing the Annual Refresher Programme In Teaching (ARPIT) for teachers. Both the programmes are being funded by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India under the PMMMNMTT scheme.

A number of positions have been advertised recently, funded by the PMMMNMTT scheme, with the last date for receiving applications being the 21st of July, 2019. You can find more details of the positions in the IUCAA website:


If you know of highly motivated individuals with a keen interest in astronomy education, and prepared to take initiative and work beyond the call of duty, please do bring it to their attention.

Thank you very much.
With my warmest regards and best wishes,
