Junior Research Fellow/Project Fellow

(JRF/PF)

Shall not be more than 28 years

Age limit is relaxable by five years for  candidates belonging to SC/ST/OBC/Women and Physically Challenged applicants.

Rs. 25,000/- + HRA for NET qualified candidates.

 

Rs. 16,000/ + HRA for non-NET candidates.

One year, can be extended up to three years or coterminus with the project subject to the progress review of the candidate.

Essential Qualification: M.Sc. or equivalent in Environmental Science/Atmospheric Science/Meteorology/Physical Sciences/Mathematical Sciences/Computer Science or in a similar closely related discipline from a recognized University/Institution.

 

Desirable Qualification : should have interest in atmospheric science particularly air quality modelling. Familiarity with at least one of the programming languages such as FORTRAN/C++ and should have flavour of MATLAB or PYTHON or IDL especially for visualisation purpose, Should be able to demonstrate working ability in UNIX environment.

Nature of work: Project will be carried out in different phases. The initial work will include running a chemical transport model (CTM) such as WRF-CHEM or LOTOS-EUROS  in UNIX environment on HPC. The fellow is also expected to work with the satellite data such as MODIS-AOD and OMI-NO2. Finally, one of the data assimilation techniques would be deployed for the assimilation of satellite data into the model.

Essential Qualification: M.Sc. or equivalent in Chemistry from a recognized University/Institution.


 

Desirable Qualification :

(1) should have basic understanding , skills and a little practical experience in various characterization techniques including UV, IR, NMR, powder XRD, SEM, TEM.

(2) Should be able to perform organic reaction involving limited number of steps and to set up catalytic reactions with various concentration levels of catalyst.

Nature of work: Project will involve the development of nanoparticles of transition metals using organochalcogen compounds as stabilizers. Syntheses of such compounds are also the part of project. Newly developed nanoparticles will be used as catalysts for various chemical transformations viz. C−C coupling reactions, C−N coupling reactions. Exploration of sensing applications of  nanoparticles for gases like H2, H2O2 will be the last stage of research project.
