Universities Jobs - Recruitment - IIT, Gandhinagar - Research Associate/ Post Doctoral Fellow | 6596

PostedOn : 18 Mar,2017 | Employment Type : Permanent | Organization : Education | Expiry : 2018-03-18


Research Description: Lithium based materials such as Lithium metatitanate (Li2TiO3) and lithium orthosilicate (Li4SiO4) are the promising tritium breeder ceramic in Test Blanket Module (TBM) of International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) project. We are going to study the influence of hydrogen exposure of Li2TiO3 and Li4SiO4 pebbles at high temperature. In addition, the influence of humidity and atmospheric temperature variation on long term storage of these materials is to be studied. An in-depth analysis of thermal stability and H2 adsorption/desorption behavior of these Li-based materials are to be established along with their formation kinetics.

Qualifications: ME/M.Tech with 3 years experience or PhD in Chemical Engineering/Mechanical Engineering /Materials Science or related branch of Engineering/Science from reputed institute.

Job Description: RA / Post Doctoral Fellow is expected to contribute in the above mentioned research involving

  • Fabrication of experimental set up for H2 adsorption/ desorption study and any other related set ups.
  • Conduct required experimentation and material characterization using laboratory facilities at IIT Gandhinagar, Palaj, Gandhinagar and the Institute of Plasma Research (IPR), Bhat, Gandhinagar – 382428.
  • Preparing required reports/Journal papers including project presentations

Desirable: Knowledge of similar type of research experience of solid phase characterizations and gas phase absorption/desorption behavior using different standard analytical technique will be an added advantage

Salary: Consolidated salary of 36,000/- per month + contingency of 25,000/- per year.
