Applications are invited for JRF (Chemical Engineering) Under DST Funded Project at IIT Gandhinagar for the year 2021. The last date of application is 5 September.
Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar (IITGN) invites applications for one JRF position from motivated individuals interested in the project titled “Design and Testing of Robust and Flexible 3D Printed Electrodes with Novel Porous Architecture Guided by Graph Theory and Molecular Simulations for High Energy Density Applications”.
The applicant should have completed his/her Bachelors or Masters in Chemistry/ Physics/ Chemical Engineering/ Materials Engineering/ Mechanical Engineering or other allied fields with at least 70% marks. Applicants with Bachelors or MSc degree require GATE/NET qualification for JRF position.
Skills expected: Applicants are expected to have a strong knowledge of Thermodynamics, Statistical Mechanics, Molecular Dynamics, Monte Carlo simulations and Polymer physics. A strong programming skill either C/C++/Fortran/Python is required. Knowledge of high performance computing systems and clusters is desired. Knowledge of Density Functional theory is a plus. The Junior Research Fellow is expected to work on developing various simulation strategies to develop porous electrodes using molecular simulations and understand the effect of various electrolytes on the capacitance of the electrode.
Candidates should apply using the link.
The total emoluments and detailed terms and conditions are as per DST rules and amount to maximum of Rs. 31,000 pm (consolidated).
The project is a blend of simulations and experiments. The project involves modelling and simulation of 3D electrodes using Molecular Dynamics Simulations. Experiments would involve synthesis and characterization of mesoporous carbon/carbon based electrodes. Subsequently measuring the capacitance of the electrodes.
