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
RD/0118-INDUAP3-001 :"High Temperature Capable Static Seals Technology Development for GasTurbine Application"
About the project: The project is about designing and manufacturing a high temperature part of a gas turbine, with a view to increasing its efficiency and power output. Material selection, design of the part, use of coatings, design of various tools for manufacture and testing and finally the demonstration of workability of the solution are among the objectives of the project. The project is expected to be completed within 3 years.
Position & Salary
Senior Research Fellow (1 Post
) Consolidated salary Rs.28000/- p.m. + HRA
Post Graduate Degree in Basic Sciences with NET qualification OR Graduate Degree in Professional Courses with GATE qualification OR Post Graduate Degree in Professional Course
With 2 years of industrial/research experience
Job is about designing and manufacturing a high temperature part to a specification given by the sponsors. The job involves designing the part, process design (designing alternate manufacturing routes), carry out process simulations using FEM based softwares, design tools for manufacture of laboratory scale samples, testing the samples at high temperature, and analysing results obtained at each stage. Design of the high temperature test setup will be involved. A testing rig to show the functionality of the part under service conditions will have to be designed, fabricated and demonstrated.
The job requires a very good understanding of materials, both metallic as well as non-metallic, their methods of processing, mechanical behaviour especially of high temperature materials under different strain rate, temperature and strain conditions, ability to design tools and setups and get them fabricated. Experience in using simulation software like ANSYS and ABAQUS/DEFORM or equivalent, for design and analysis of tools /setups would be a requirement. Some programming (development of user codes) might also be involved. The incumbent is expected to work to the timelines of the project.
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 October, 2018
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.
