Project Post-Doctoral Fellow (Civil Engineering) at IIT Kanpur [2 Positions]: Apply by Dec 28

Amazon Deals for you

Applications are invited for Project Post-Doctoral Fellow (Civil Engineering) at IIT Kanpur for the year 2021. The last date of application is 28 December.

Applications are invited for two posts of Project Post-doctoral fellow for a sponsored project “Development of air quality modeling decision support tools for policy-makers”. 

Eligibility

Essential:

  • Ph.D. in Civil Engineering/Computer Science/Physical Science/Atmospheric Science or related field.
  • Significant background in data analysis.
  • High proficiency in programming (python/any other programming language).

Desirable:

Good publication record in top notch conferences and journals. Strong knowledge of atmospheric chemistry and physics, especially as related to sources and behavior of ambient particulate matter.

Edureka - PG Diploma in AI & Machine Learning
Edureka - PG Diploma in AI & Machine Learning

Experience with some or all of the following skills: chemical transport modeling of air pollution, atmospheric measurements and related data analysis, statistical and regression modeling, working in an interdisciplinary environment. As the work will be divided between two Post-doctoral Fellows, it is not necessary for a single candidate to demonstrate all of the listed qualifications.

Nature of Work

The goal of the project is to develop and evaluate reduced-complexity models of air pollution for use by Indian decision-makers. The primary products will be source-receptor matrices that relate emissions of particulate matter and its precursors to downwind concentrations and damage metrics, i.e. health damages per tonne of emitted pollutant, for emissions as a function of species and location.

Key steps of the work will be the compilation of available air pollution measurements, including quality control and assurance; deployment and evaluation of a state-of-the-art chemical transport model for India; deriving the reduced-complexity models from the chemical transport model; and evaluation of the reduced-complexity models.

In the later stages, the work will involve outreach and training to disseminate the tools for use by policy-makers. The work is a collaborative project with Prof. Peter Adams of Carnegie Mellon University.

Duration

  • Available funding is for one year, but we anticipate a two-year project. Appointment will initially be for one year. Renewal will be subject to the performance of the candidate.
  • The post is purely temporary and on contractual basis.

Application

Interested candidates may apply via email (to dstccp[at]gmail.com)giving full details of qualifications and experience with copies of relevant certificates by December 28, 2021.

Salary

Rupees 60,000/65,000/70,000 (on the basis of experience).
