Want to contribute to cutting edge research?
Positions of Project Research Engineer (PRE), Project Research Assistant (PRA), Senior Project Manager (SPM) are available in the following projects.
Job Code Project Name, Number of Posts, Eligibility & Consolidated Salary
   Energy Science and Engineering
P(28-1)Low cost, High Efficiency (15%) solution processable Solar Cells using Organo-Metal Halide Perovskite Materials From Cell towards Module
About the project: This project aims at developing large area perovskite based solar cells with efficiencies 6-8 % for 1 inch2 area and small area cells with efficiencies > 10 % (~ 1 cm2) using different process methodologies. It would be a considerably big step towards commercialization of the perovskite photovoltaics and would serve as basic building blocks for Perovskite modules. This project also aims at developing a stable, scalable and repeatable process that renders perovskites to be stable for about 1000 hours of irradiance. A complete mathematical model would also be developed to under-stand the scalability of these cells. Achieving 6-8% efficiency in large area cells (~ 1 inch2) will be the next big and considerably challenging step in perovskite solar cells towards scalability. The major focus would be to study the unique properties of material formation via the proposed process technology.
PRE: (1 Post) Eligibility : M.Sc with 2 years experience OR M.Tech in Physics is desirable. NET qualified are welcome. Selected candidate(s) will be encouraged to appear for the PhD entrance in IITB.
Salary : Consolidated salary Rs.28000 - 42000/- p.m.
Job Profile : The candidate will be performing R&D work in perovskite photovoltaic device.
PRA: (1 Post) Eligibility : M.Sc/B.Tech in Physics is desirable. NET qualified are welcome. Selected candidate(s) will be encouraged to appear for the PhD entrance in IITB.
Salary : Consolidated salary Rs.21000 - 31000/- p.m.
Job Profile : The candidate will be performing R&D work in perovskite photovoltaic device.
P(28-2)Molten salt Loop with Central Receiver, Salt Storage and Heat Exchanger
About the project: This project is related to prototype development and testing towards development and setup of indigenous 24 hour/day Solar Thermal Power Plant through the joint efforts of IIT Bombay and NTPC. The indigenous Solar Thermal Power Plant would require development and testing of prototypes of various CSP components. This prototype development and testing is being taken up as three R&D projects namely; 1) Linear Fresnel Reflector (LFR) based collector development with receiver and steam storage (15NTPC003), 2) Molten salt loop with central receiver, salt storage and heat exchanger (15NTPC002), 3) Heliostat reflector development with tracking and flux measurement (15NTPC001).
These R&D projects are being taken up in parallel. The prototypes will be installed at Greater NOIDA. Detailed engineering specifications have been evolved during the course of the project with the assistance of Engineering Firms. The hardware will be sourced through open tender system and will be assembled at site. After testing the set-up online, the system is to be integrated to local thermal application.
This project is conceived as a path-breaking project for the solar thermal power sector which is also expected to have significant impact on the sector of solar concentrators for industrial process heat.
SPM: (1 Post) Eligibility : PhD with minimum 4 years relevant experience
MTech/ME or equivalent degree with minimum 8 years relevant experience
BTech / BE or equivalent degree with minimum 12 years experience of management (pre-commissioning, commissioning and post-commissioning operation experience) of engineering projects at sites in India / abroad as project manager or lead engineer. Candidates with shorter experience (8 to 10 years) specifically in management of solar thermal installation projects at sites in India / abroad as project manager (pre-commissioning, commissioning and post-commissioning operation experience) or lead engineer may also apply. Only engineers should apply. Desirable: Experience in the following areas: Solar Thermal concentrators; Detailed Engineering Design; Vendor development & interaction; Erection, commissioning and testing of plant. Only academic experience and management of academic / lab oriented projects will not be considered as desirable experience. The job basically involves project management of installation of solar thermal technology in field near Delhi which will be co-ordinated from IIT Bombay. The work is related to 3 projects (15NTPC001, 15NTPC002, 15NTPC003) though actual appointment is from one project. Coordination & management of all three projects at site as well as in the office including monitoring the vendors, technical documentation, team coordination for timely & quality delivery for project milestones, financial monitoring etc. All engineers and senior project executive officer will have to work towards the successful and timely project completion. This may involve taking cross- functional responsibilities as needed.
Salary : Consolidated salary Rs.67000 - 91000 + Rs.8000.00/- Out Of Campus Allowance (if applicable) p.m.
