The Department of Chemistry at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Roorkee invites applications from outstanding and enthusiastic researchers for the postdoctoral position under the mentorship of Dr. Ravindra Pandey focused on “Probing the Complex Mechanism of pH-low Insertion Peptides in a Model Cell Membranes Using Sum Frequency Generation Spectroscopy”.
IIT Roorkee has its roots in the Roorkee College, which was set up in 1847. It was renamed as the Thomason College of Civil Engineering in 1854.
- Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry/ Physics with experience of Laser Spectroscopy, MATLAB, and LabVIEW.
- Candidates who have recently submitted their thesis are also eligible to apply subject to the condition that they will furnish the proof of the award of Ph.D. degree at the time of interview at IIT Roorkee if shortlisted.
- However, the preference will be given to the candidate having prior postdoctoral experience.
- The prospective candidate is expected to have a strong background in the area of Physical Chemistry and will explore the complex protein-membrane interactions using interface-specific sum-frequency generation spectroscopy.
The duration of the fellowship will be of two years extendable to one more year, if necessary. The candidate is expected to join the Department as soon as the offer letter has been released. The fellow will receive a consolidated fellowship as below in addition to the contingency grant of ₹ 50,000/-per annum.
