Applications are invited for Postdoctoral Fellowship (Mechanical Engineering) at IIT Gandhinagar for the year 2021. The last date of application is 31 August.
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the area of thermo-fluids related to condensation heat transfer. Water vapor condensation is an omnipresent phenomenon and enhancing heat transfer performance during vapor condensation can bring about significant energy and economic benefits in several industrial processes including power generation, water harvesting, HVAC, and electronics cooling.
Despite significant progress in understanding condensation in pure vapor conditions, there is a lack of understanding when it comes to atmospheric water vapor condensation in the presence of non- condensable gases. The selected candidate will be carrying research along with Prof. Soumyadip Sett in the above areas and will be funded by the Institute. The candidate is expected to learn new hardware, software and theory skills and must be proficient in written and verbal communication.
The applicant should have
- A Ph.D. in Mechanical/Materials/Chemical Engineering or similar areas with specialization in thermo-fluids from a reputed institute or university.
- A background in mathematical modelling of heat transfer and fluid flow.
- Prior experience in designing, establishing and conducting experiments.
The appointment is for one year (possibility of extension on the basis of performance).
Applications may be sent directly to Prof. Soumyadip Sett at soumyadipsett[at]iitgn.ac.in. Each applicant should include preferably in a single pdf file a detailed CV, brief summary of doctoral research (max 1 page), a short statement of your career goals and motivation to apply to this position (max 1 page) and a list of three references. Please mention “Application for Institute Postdoctoral Position – 2021” as the subject of the email.
Deadline: Application must be received by August 31, 2021.
Rs. 45,000 – 60,000 plus Rs. 10,000 as HRA per month.
