INDUSTRIAL RESEARCH & CONSULTANCY CENTRE OFFICE OF THE DEAN(R&D) INDIAN INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY,BOMBAY.
Circular No. 117/2017
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
17COPTSPC002 :"Mass, temperature, and species measurement during fast pyrolysis of solid propellants"
(COPT Solid Propellant Combustion & Modelin)
About the project: This project aims as gaining an understanding of the conditions that exist in the fizz zone of a solid propellant, when it undergoes combustion. This is proposed to be achieved by subjecting small quantities of propellant at high enough heating rates to accurately mimic the conditions on the combustion propellant surface without igniting the sample. Mass loss data will be gathered at a suitable range of isothermal conditions and will be analysed to formulate a semi-global reaction mechanism. This mechanism will be verified and improved by constructing a physical model of the condensed phase decomposition process to predict mass loss.
Position & Salary
Project Research Associate (1 Post
) Consolidated salary Rs.40000 - 56000 + Rs.5000.00/- Out Of Campus Allowance (if applicable) p.m.
MTech/ME/MDes or equivalent degree BTech/BE/MA/MSc/MCA/MBA or equivalent degree with minimum 2 years relevant experience
Candidates with experience in experimental work pertaining to heat transfer will be preferred.
The work entails design and development of a fast pyrolyzer capable of
achieving heating rates of 10,000 K/s. The design involves analysis of
heating of a small sample by a laser source. The pyrolyzer needs to be
subsequently attached to a gas analyzer (a FTIR spectrometer and a mass
spectrometer). The mass of the sample also needs to be measured
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.
Candidate possessing the requisite qualification and experience should apply online at
on or before
10th July, 2017
Call letters will be sent through e-mail to the candidates shortlisted for interview and will also be displayed on IRCC website. Candidates called for interview will be
required to attend at their own expenses.
