Designation/Position- Research Associate at IIT Delhi
IIT Delhi, India, invites applications for Research Associate at IIT Delhi from eligible and interested candidates
About- Applications from Indian nationals are invited for Project Appointment under the following project. Appointment shall be on contractual basis with consolidated pay, renewable yearly or upto the duration of the project. Research Associate at IIT Delhi
Designation: Research Associate (1)
Research Area: Thermal/ mechanical/chemical
Location: IIT Delhi
- EQ & Desired Skill: M. Tech. with 3-5 yrs Research Experience (Thermal/MechanicaI Engineering/Energy) preferably having good experience in Design and Simulation through CFD (for Mech./Energy/Thermal Engg. background).
- Ph. D. is any discipline of thermal/ mechanical/chemical having publications in referred Journals, will be preferred.
- Project Requirements: The selected candidate should be able to carry out detailed studies of heat and mass transfer for the biomass combustion devices for cooking and heating applications. This includes the testing using standard (BIS, ISO protocols), modelling & simulation, data collection & analysis, field visit, writing research articles. The study also includes possible interventions as per the user’s inputs such as, automation for primary and secondary air flow rates into the biomass combustion devices, simulation using suitable software and other technical work related to the project.
Job Profile: Release of airborne particulate matter (PM) is a major environmental issue associated with biomass combustion. The World Health Organization (WHO) has issued recommendations for improving air quality, including setting an annual average limit of 20 micrograms per cubic metre of particulate matter (PM 10). In India, 68% of the population lives in rural areas, and 0.2 billion people use fuel for cooking: 49% use firewood, 28.6% LPG, 8.9% cow dung cake, 2.9% kerosene, 1.5% coal, lignite, or charcoal, 0.4% biogas, 0.1% electricity, and 0.5% any other means. According to the Global Burden of Disease 2013 study, air pollution causes the deaths of approximately 5.5 million people every year. There are approximately 2.6 million persons who are exposed to indoor air pollutants. The leading causes of death among these people are ischemic heart disease (27%), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (28%), lower respiratory infections (16%), and lung cancer (4%), in that order . Burning crops in an open field is a major reason for changing the atmospheric chemistry in the nearby locations. Many hazardous pollutants are emitted from this uncontrolled and low-efficiency combustion. Around 13% of global emissions from agro-residue burning are particularly from India, affecting many people’s lives yearly. More than 130 MT of agro-residue is subjected to in-situ burning annually in India. Also, the traditional cooking practice followed among rural communities across the globe with woody and unprocessed biomass in traditional cookstoves results in inefficient cooking, fuel wastage, and severe health hazards to the user by inhaling the smoke emitted from the cookstove. Thus, there is an urgent need to investigate these issues to utilise the waste biomass efficiently and protect the environment and people from the emissions of crop residue burning
