JRF (Chemical Engineering) Under DST Sponsored Project at IIT Gandhinagar [2 Positions]: Apply by July 5: Expired

Applications are invited for JRF (Chemical Engineering) Under DST Sponsored Project at IIT Gandhinagar for the year 2021. The last date of application is 5 July.

Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar (IITGN) invites applications for two JRF positions 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.

Junior Research Fellow -1 position (Simulation Track): 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/Project Assistant 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.

Junior Research Fellow -1 position (Experiment Track): The candidate should have experimental experience in electrochemistry and synthesis of porous electrodes. The candidate should be familiar with characterization techniques like XRD, SEM, TEM, BET, Cyclic voltammetry.

Expectation: 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.


Candidates must send their applications via e-mail to Prof. Mithun Radhakrishna (mithunr@iitgn.ac.in) with the subject line: JRF Application-Your Name. It should include the current CV with list of publications (if any), and a one page summary of the candidate’s research experience. Any queries may be directed to the same email id given above.

Important date

Applications would be accepted until July 5th 2021 (see the details on the application procedure below).


The total emoluments and detailed terms and conditions are as per DST rules and amount to maximum of Rs. 31,000 pm (consolidated).
