Junior Research Fellow Under SERB at IIT Jodhpur: Apply by Jan 15, 2021: Expired

Applications are invited from the citizen of India for filling up the following temporary position in the sponsored project at this Institute. The position is purely temporary, initially for a period of 06 Months, and extendable but co-terminus with the duration of the project, on a contractual basis with consolidated pay.

Indian Institute of Technology Jodhpur (IIT Jodhpur or IITJ), is a public university located in Jodhpur in the state of Rajasthan in India. It is one of the eight new Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) established by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India under The Institutes of Technology (Amendment) Act, 2011 which declares these eight IITs as well as the conversion of the Institute of Technology, Banaras Hindu University to IIT.

Project Title

Study of the Effects of Stress-State and Strain-Rate on Constitutive Response of Polymer Gels via Experiments and Continuum Mechanics Modeling

Brief description of Project

An integrated experimental and continuum modeling based approach will be used to characterize the stress state and strain-rate dependent nonlinear mechanical response of soft polymer gels. Experiments will be done under different stress states and quasi-static strain rates to determine the nonlinear mechanical response of soft polymeric hydrogels and elastomers. Hyperplastic models will be developed for predicting the deformation response of hydrogels under realistic loading condition.


Master’s Degree in Materials Engineering/Metallurgical Engineering/Mechanical Engineering or equivalent, or B. Tech/B.E. in Materials Engineering/Material Science and Engineering Metallurgical Engineering/Mechanical Engineering or equivalent with throughout first class and with valid GATE Score.


The candidates should have either of the following:

  • Hands on experience on mechanical testing of materials.
  • Knowledge of mechanical behavior of polymers.
  • Continuum Mechanics.
Job Description

The student is expected to design and fabricate test fixtures for conducting tension and shear experiments on soft materials and conduct the experiments. The student is expected to determine the effect to composing on mechanical properties of hydrogels and elastomers to develop material dependent hyperplastic constitutive model.

Duration of Initial Appointment

06 Months

Consolidate Pay


Age Limit
