INDUSTRIAL RESEARCH & CONSULTANCY CENTRE OFFICE OF THE DEAN(R&D) INDIAN INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY,BOMBAY.
Circular No. 119/2017
RECRUITMENT FOR PROJECT
Applications are invited from the citizens of India for filling up the following temporary
for the sponsored project
of this Institute. The
temporary initially for a period of
and tenable only for the duration of the project. The requisite qualification & experience etc. are given below:
Project Code, Project Title & Funding Agency
17COPTSPC001 :"Synthesis and characterization of novel solid propellant formulations"
(COPT Solid Propellant Combustion & Modelin)
About the project: Propellant community is always in search of novel compounds that are energetically dense to provide enormous amounts of power on combustion, yet kinetically stable to withstand long term storage. The cubane family of compounds provides a unique opportunity to cater to these diverse requirements with tailoring of molecular structure and with addition of substituent groups. The versatility of the family lies in the possibility of formulating oxidizers, through the addition of nitro, nitrato, dinitramide, etc. groups through suitable schemes; or formulating polymeric binders by incorporating nitrogen-rich groups such as azides, triazoles, tetrazoles etc. in the monomeric groups with subsequent polymerization.
Position & Salary
Project Research Associate (1 Post

fundamental engineering concepts
2) Molecular modelling simulations for proposed molecular structures of new
3) Reaction mechanism development for these structures using suitable
4) Auxiliary work required to accomplish tasks 1, 2 and 3 above
The appointment is for time bound project and the candidate is required to work mainly for the successful completion of the
. The selection committee may offer lower or higher designation and lower or higher salary depending upon the experience and performance of the candidate in the interview.
