Subramaniam Mohanadas (Tamil: சுப்பிரமணியம் மோகனதாஸ்) is a Sri Lankan Tamil chemist, academic and former vice-chancellor of the University of Jaffna.

Early life[edit]

Mohanadas obtained a BSc degree from the University of Sri Lanka. He later received a Phd degree from the University of Adelaide in 1978 after producing a thesis titled Effects of atrizine on the assimilation of inorganic nitrogen compounds in plants and microorganisms.[1]


Mohanadas joined the University of Jaffna in 1986. He served as dean of the Faculty of Agriculture between October 1992 to March 1994.[2] He served as vice-chancellor of the university between April 2003 and March 2006.[3] His appointment was controversial as he was only an associate professor.[4] After Mohanadas' successor Ratnajeevan Hoole failed to take up his post Mohanadas was appointed acting vice-chancellor.[5]
