Applications are invited from the citizen of India for filling up the following temporary position in the Sponsored Research Project at this Institute. The position is purely temporary, initially for a period of 08 Months, and extendable but co-terminus with the duration of the project, on contractual basis with consolidated pay.
- Project Title: Development of Functionalized Metal Oxides and Layered Materials for Environmental Sensors
- Name of the Project Investigator: Dr. Ritu Gupta
- Duration for initial appointment: 08 Months
- Name of the Post: Research Associate-1
- Post: 01
Eligibility: PhD in Chemistry/Physics /Materials Engineering/ Electrical Engineering/ Nanoscience or any other allied areas from a recognized University/Institution. Those who have submitted thesis can also apply.
Experience: Experience in synthesis of nanomaterials, characterization, nanofabrication, gas sensing.
Desirable: The candidate with prior expertise or experience in fabrication and characterization of gas sensors, 2D materials synthesis and characterization, data handling and analysis.
Maximum Age: Below 35 Years
The candidate will be expected to develop new nanostructured materials, process, characterize and evaluate sensors to achieve high specificity and sensitivity of the sensors. In addition, the post doc will participate in on-going projects as well as the mentoring of PhD and master students in the team.
The candidate should demonstrate independence and creativity in preparing, executing and optimizing new micro fabrication processes, as well as in preparing and performing characterization of samples.
The project involves development of Volatile organic compound and gas sensors based on new materials (functionalized metal oxides and layered materials) for use in next-generation technologies, IoT enabled environmental monitoring and healthcare. The project will involve synthesis of functionalized layered nanomaterials, designing and fabrication of sensors, characterization and evaluation of single and multi-array sensors.
The candidates possessing the requisite qualification and experience should apply through the online process up to 03 March 2021. The candidates are advised to send a soft copy of the application with all relevant documents to recruitment_rnd[at]iitj.ac.in.
Rs. 47,000/- +HRA (As per institute Norms).
