Kochi, Dec 23, 2012: Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) has invited applications for the following programmes (OCES/ DGFS – 2013) under the aegis of HBNI during the year 2013.

OCES-2013: One-Year Orientation Course for Engineering Graduates & Science Post-Graduates starting in August 2013 will be conducted at BARC Training Schools situated at: BARC, Mumbai; IGCAR, Kalpakkam; NFC, Hyderabad; RRCAT, Indore; AMD, Hyderabad.

DGFS-2013: Two-Year DAE Graduate Fellowship Scheme for Engineering Graduates and Physics Post-Graduates for joining M.Tech. in select specialisations starting in July 2013 at: Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) – Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras, Roorkee and BHU-Varanasi; National Institute of Technology (NIT) - Rourkela; Institute of Chemical Technology (ICT) – Mumbai.

Both OCES TSOs and DGFS Fellows will get opportunities for pursuing Ph.D. through HBNI. On successful completion of the OCES or DGFS programs, TSOs will be appointed as Scientific Officers in one of the DAE units or Atomic Energy Regulatory Board with attractive career progression opportunities up to the highest echelons.

Disciplines with Code:

* Related degree disciplines such as Electronics & Communication, Electronics and Controls are also eligible.
# Candidates with degree disciplines Electrical & Electronics or Electronics & Instrumentation can apply under either of the disciplines (Electrical or Electronics etc.). However, such candidates must qualify on the basis of a valid GATE-2013 score or Online Test in the discipline in which they wish to be considered.
† The candidates belonging to Physics discipline selected for the BARC Training School at Mumbai will be allotted either Physics or Radiological Safety Engineering (OCES-BARC-RSE) as their Training Schemes and those selected for the BARC Training school at IGCAR will be allotted either Reactor Physics (OCES-IGCAR-RP) or Material Science (OCES-IGCAR-MS) as their Training Schemes, based on Selection Interview merit and their preferences.
‡ The candidates belonging to Chemistry discipline selected for the Training School at BARC will be allotted either Chemistry or Radiological Safety Engineering (OCES-BARC-RSE) as their Training Schemes and those selected for the Training school at IGCAR will pursue Nuclear Fuel Cycle Chemistry in the Training School, based on Selection Interview merit and their preferences.
## Radiological Safety Engineering (RSE) is not a separate discipline but an additional Training Scheme option for candidates in Physics and Chemistry.

Selection to OCES/DGFS-2013 is a 2-step process: Screening to short-list candidates followed by Selection Interviews of the short-listed candidates. There is a separate selection process for each of the disciplines except for RSE (code 44), which is available only as an additional option to applicants for Physics and Chemistry disciplines (codes 41 and 42).

1. Screening for the Engineering disciplines (codes 21-29) is based on two alternative methods:
(a) Cut-off GATE Score (GATE-2013) for short-listing candidates for Selection Interviews will be declared on the Online Application Portal for Engineering disciplines, in the first week of April, 2013. Candidates in Civil Engineering will be short-listed for Selection Interviews only on the basis of a valid GATE-2013 score.

(b) Online Test: It will be conducted in each of the seven Engineering disciplines (codes 21-27) except Civil Engineering (Code 29). Candidates who do not opt for GATE or who do not qualify on the basis of a GATE-2013 Score may take the Online Test. Travel Allowance is not paid for appearing in it. Online Test will be held in the end of April 2013.

2. Screening for Science disciplines (codes 41-43 & 45-46) is based on two alternative methods:
a) Written Test: It is conducted in each of the above mentioned disciplines (codes 41-43 & 45-46). Travel Allowance is not paid for appearing in it. Written Test is scheduled on Sunday, February 24, 2013.

b) GATE Score: In this case, merit list in each of the Science disciplines (codes 41-43 & 45-46) is prepared on the basis of a valid GATE-2013 Score of the applicants. Cut-off GATE score and Written Test marks for short listing candidates for Selection Interviews in each discipline are decided after the last date of receipt of applications.

c) Science candidates have the option of utilizing either one or both of the screening avenues detailed above.

d) Students graduating with a Masters Degree from University of Mumbai – Department of Atomic Energy Centre for Excellence in Basic Sciences (UM-DAE CBS) and National Institute of Science Education and Research (NISER), Bhubaneswar, and whose Cumulative Grade Performance Average (CGPA) is greater than or equal to 7.5 on a scale of 10 will directly be screened into the Selection Interview stage, provided they meet all other eligibility requirements of the OCES/DGFS-2013 program. Such candidates should first apply for OCES/DGFS-2013 program on the Online Application Portal and subsequently forward their details through the Directors of their institutes.

Selection Interviews of short-listed candidates will be conducted in BARC Training School, Mumbai. Outstation applicants will be paid to-and-fro second-class sleeper train fare by shortest route or actual fare, whichever is less. Probable period of Selection Interviews is during May-June, 2013. Names and Selection Interview dates of short-listed candidates in Science disciplines will be declared on the website http://oces.hbni.ac.in in the second week of April, 2013.

Short-listed candidates in Engineering disciplines, qualified on the basis of a GATE score will be able to choose an Interview slot, based on availability, on the website designated for Online Applications in the Engineering disciplines, in the second week of April, 2013 onwards whereas short-listed Engineering candidates qualified on the basis of Online Test will be able to choose an Interview slot based on availability on the same website in the second week of May, 2013.
