Post Doctoral Fellowships by Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee (IIT, Roorkee) An Institute of National Importance

At Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee (Formerly University of Roorkee), a limited number of Post Doctoral Fellowships are available to carry out advanced research. The Institute has an illustrious history and a glorious past. The Thomason College, the oldest engineering college in India, owes its birth to the waters of Mother Ganges. With¬out the River Ganges there would have been no canal of that name, and, without the canal, no college at Roorkee. The Ganges Canal soon reached maturity, but its offspring, the Thomason College, planned by men of wisdom and foresight, grew steadily from the smallest beginnings till it attained the proud position which it now holds as one of the leading educa¬tional institutions of the East with great traditions and a reputation second to none. The establishment of an Engineering college at Roorkee was suggested to the Honourable James Thomason, Lieutenant-Governor of the North-West Provinces, about 1846, by Colonel Cautley of the Royal Artillery, who had been Superinten¬dent-General of Canals since 1836 and was busily engaged in the scheme, first contemplated by Colonel Colvin of the Bengal Engineers, for the employment of the waters of the Ganges for irrigation.
