Want to contribute to cutting edge research?
Positions of Junior Research Fellow (JRF), Project Research Assistant (PRA), Research Associate (RA) are available in the following projects.
Job Code Project Name, Number of Posts, Eligibility & Consolidated Salary
P(25-1) Novel Hybrid and Multifunctional Materials from Protein-Polymer Surfactant and Liquid Crystal Droplets
About the project: The project aims to pioneer a new area of materials chemistry at the interface between protein nanoscale engineering and Liquid Crystal (LC) micro-droplet technology. We wish to develop new bio-functionalized materials in the form of protein-containing LC emulsion droplet dispersions and geometrically patterned LC droplet arrays.
JRF: (1 Post) Eligibility : Post Graduate Degree in Basic Sciences with NET qualification or Graduate Degree in Professional Courses with NET qualification or Post Graduate Degree in Professional Course.

Degree in physical chemistry with a strong inclination towards material science, soft matter will be advantageous.
Salary : Consolidated salary Rs.25000/- p.m. + HRA
Job Profile : Successful candidate will look into formation of microemulsion liquid crystal droplets as a route to incorporate biomolecular functionalities. S/he would involve in designing and running experiments, individual/group discussions, and analyzing/reporting results.
