Age: Preferably less than 35 years as on 1 January 2021
Creative & Advanced Research Based On Nanomaterials (CARBON) Laboratory, Department of Chemical Engg. at IIT Hyderabad is looking for a young, creative and enthusiastic candidate to join as a Postdoctoral fellow. CARBON Laboratory is actively engaged in the development of nanomaterials (polymeric, carbon, and inorganic) in the form of thin films, nanoparticles, nanofibers or in hierarchical/multi-scale for the application of energy (as electrode materials for batteries and supercapacitors), environment (adsorbents for water and air purification, waste management), healthcare (feminine hygiene, drug delivery, tissue scaffolds) and sensors.
- This project aims to develop next-generation energy storage systems (e.g. battery) especially suitable for the extreme environment.
- Work involves performing a significant number of experiments including synthesis of nanomaterials, structural and electrochemical characterization, and data analysis.
- A thorough understanding of materials properties using DFT calculations will be needed to rationally design and choose new materials including electrodes, electrolytes, and salts for best electrochemical performance.
How to Apply-
Eligible candidates may send their latest CV with a copy of their two most important publications to email@example.com on or before 15 December 2020.
Candidates also need to arrange at least two recommendation letters (out of two, one from a Ph.D. advisor) in support of their application.
Mode of Selection:
Candidates based on the essential qualification and desirable experience will be shortlisted for an interview which will be tentatively conducted in the last week of December. Candidates will be required to join latest by January 10, 2021.
