Welcome to the Department of Physics, University of Kashmir, Srinagar, India. Ours is a medium
sized department with 12 faculty members who come from a variety of academic and research
Our faculty are actively engaged in research across the full spectrum of the discipline, from
the tiniest to the largest scales, from individual fundamental particles to the remarkable collective
properties that emerge in ensembles, and from the coldest temperatures in the universe to conditions
rivalling those of the Big Bang. Faculty members collaborate with researchers at the pioneering
institutes of the country like Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai, Inter-
University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA), Pune, Saha Institute of Nuclear
Physics (SINP), Kolkata, Variable Energy Cyclotron Centre (VECC), Kolkata, Inter-University
Accelerator Centre (IUAC), New Delhi and many more. In addition the faculty members work in
collaboration with many IITs and Universities across the country. We have many international
collaborations also which include CERN, Geneva, FAIR at Darmstadt, Germany and ORNL USA
The Department strives to maintain an enjoyable and highly collaborative environment for
research and education and to help researchers and students reach their best potential. We continue
to expand and update our curriculum to include topics of current interest.
Our students have found employment in the state of Jammu and Kashmir as well as in many
institutes/universities across the country. Many of our students are working in leading institutes
Whether you are a prospective or current student, a community member, or one of our many
alumni, we look forward to your joining with us to continue to make this Department progress in
academics as well as research activities.
We hope you’ll come and join us.
