The Raman Research Institute, funded by the Government of India, is a premier institute engaged in research in basic sciences. Applications are invited for two posts of Research Assistant for the Project Designing smart and stimuli-responsive materials using colloidal particles and biopolymers.
The appointment is on a temporary basis. The candidates will be associated with the Soft and Adaptive Materials Lab in Soft Condensed Matter Group of the Institute for a period of one year, with a possible extension by another year. The candidate should be motivated and should have working experience in experimental work.
To assist in the experimental work involving:
(a) Large scale synthesis of monodisperse colloidal particles over a wide range of sizes, shapes and surface properties. (b) Synthesis, handling and fluorescent labeling of collagen networks and in-situ characterization using confocal microscopy
- M.Sc. (Physics / Biophysics / Biochemistry) or M.E./ M. Tech (Material Science / Chemical Engineering / Polymer Physics).
- The candidate should be motivated and should have a flair for experimental work.
- The candidate should have working experience in one or more of the following: Large scale synthesis and characterization of colloidal particles, OR,
- Handling and fluorescent labeling of bio-polymer networks like actin and collagen.
- Confocal microscopy.
Consolidated remuneration of Rs.23,500/- per month at commencement + HRA (24% of consolidated remuneration) will be paid to the selected candidates.
An increment of Rs.1000/- will be provided in the second year.
