This Call Expires In :
Women constitute an important section of the workforce. However, in the present situation a large number of well-qualified women scientists have been left out of the S&T activities due to various circumstances. The problems faced are several but significantly, most often the “break-in-career” arises out of motherhood and family responsibilities. The options for revival of their profession are meager in current system due to restriction in age and qualification/experience criterion. The “Women Scientists Scheme-A (WOS-A)” for research in basic and applied sciences has been evolved in this context, by the Department of Science and Technology (DST) for providing opportunities to women scientists and technologists between the age group of 27-57 years who desire to return to mainstream science and work as bench-level scientists. Through this endeavour of the Department, a concerted effort would be made to give women a strong foothold into the scientific profession, help them re-enter into the mainstream and provide a launch pad for further forays into the field of science and technology.
Scientific Disciplines: (1) Physical and Mathematical Sciences [PMS] (2) Chemical Sciences [CS] (3) Life Sciences [LS] (4) Earth and Atmospheric Sciences [EAS] (5) Engineering & Technology [ET].
