Applications Invited for JRF Position under DST-SERB Funded Research Project in Mechanistic of CO Oxidation on Metal Free Catalyst and Property Package

Applications are invited from highly motivated and eligible candidates for the position of Junior Research Fellow (JRF) in a SERB funded research project (File No: EMR/2016/004689)

Objectives of the project:

  • The first-principles based codes are reliable to find the various physical and chemical properties of materials.
  • The output and microscopic understanding proposed using these codes have been well accepted by the scientific community. So in this project, we will use density functional theory based codes to understand the mechanistic of CO oxidation.

Eligibility: First class M.Sc. in Physics or M.Tech in Nanotechnology/Materials Science with a good background in Solid State Physics, Quantum Mechanics and/or Computational Physics.

Desirable: NET/GATE in Physics, Good knowledge in Fortran 90, basics of density functional theory and Linux OS.

Fellowship: For Post Graduate Degree in Basic Sciences with CSIR-UGC NET, GATE qualified or GATE qualified Post Graduate Degree in Professional Course: Rs 25,000/- per month + admissible HRA

For Others: Rs 16,000 per month + admissible HRA

Registration for Ph.D.: Selected candidates should register for full-time Ph.D. program at the SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University), Kattankulathur, Chennai.

Project Duration:

  • 3 years
  • All required research facilities will be provided

Application Procedure:

Subject of the e-mail should contain ‘Application for JRF in CO Oxidation’.

Last date of application: 31 August 2017.
