Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar (IITGN) invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow position in Computational Biology for a research project funded by Indian Institute of Technology, Gandhinagar.
The candidate will perform computational fluid dynamics simulations integrated with aerosol dynamics to investigate their transport and fates in indoor environments using platforms such as Fluent and COMSOL. The candidate will also have the opportunity to work on filed campaigns to collect, process, and model air quality data.
Ph.D. in Environmental Science, Chemical Engineering, Energy Science, Civil Engineering, or allied subjects from reputed institute with good scientific publication record. Experience in computation fluid dynamics simulations in Fluent or COMSOL. Knowledge of aerosol science and general air quality concepts is preferred but not required to be considered for this position. Candidates who have submitted their thesis are equally eligible for the position. The candidate should be highly motivated and be able to work independently. Good communication skills, both in scientific writing as well as presentations are highly desirable.
Initial appointment is for 1 year, extendable up to 1 more year based on performance.
