INDUSTRIAL RESEARCH & CONSULTANCY CENTRE OFFICE OF THE DEAN(R&D) INDIAN INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY,BOMBAY.
Circular No. 109/2018
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-DST0000-031 :"Green Manufacturing of Automobile Forgings by Precision Forging"
About the project: Precision forging does not permit occurrence of flash. Hence the product is of consistent weight and of better quality, requiring the tools to be designed for the necessary robustness, especially at the hot forging temperatures. The project is about designing the processing variables, and tools to get the right kind of microstructure and mechanical behaviour (including fatigue properties), and validating it on the industrial shopfloor.
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 OR Post Graduate Degree in Professional Course with 2 years of research experience
Desirable: A candidate having first class throughout during graduation and at least two years of experience in line with the requirements of the project after post graduation.
Job is about designing tools for hot forging of automotive crankshafts without flash. Simultaneously, prediction of occurrence of defects based on the Strain Nonuniformity Index (SNI) developed at IIT Bombay, is expected. Different designs of automotive crankshafts need tools for flashless (hot) forging to be designed. The job involves process design (designing tools and manufacturing parameters) to get the desired microstructure and the mechanical behaviour, simulations using FEM based softwares (some computer programming to develop user programmes might be required), designing tools for manufacture the crankshafts, and validation of the tool and process design.
The job requires a very good understanding of materials, especially ferrous metals, their methods of processing, mechanical behaviour especially at high temperature 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 desirable. The incumbent will have 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
9th 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.
