BITS-Pilani Chemical Science JRF Job - Applications Invited

BITS-Pilani Chemical Science JRF Job – Applications Invited

Applications are invited from suitable candidates for Junior Research Fellow (JRF) to work
on the following project sponsored by consultant industrial organization, under the joint
supervision of Dr. Somak Chatterjee and Dr. Krishna Chaitanya Etika in the Department
of Chemical Engineering, BITS-Pilani, Pilani Campus, Rajasthan.

Project Title: Design and development of multifunctional nanocoatings for engineering

Principal Investigators: Dr. Somak Chatterjee and Dr. Krishna Chaitanya Etika

Project Description: Nanostructured coatings have gained tremendous importance in the field of engineering materials due to their ability to impart attractive and tunable functionality to a variety of surfaces. Only a few nanometer thick nanocoatings have been demonstrated to greatly alter or augment a variety of material properties that include, corrosion and wear resistance, optical absorption, flame retardancy, electrical conductivity, transport characteristics etc., which makes them attractive for a variety of applications. These nanocoatings can be applied by a variety of techniques, such as layer-by-layer assembly, spin or spray coating onto different substrate materials. The properties of the nanocoatings can be tuned by the help of different parameters, like, precursor, method of deposition, thickness, surface engineering and many more. The current project involves investigating the role of these parameters in the evolution of a novel kind of nanocoatings materials, strategically targeted for specific industrial applications. The project
involves development of the base concept, testing strategy and technology transfer support to high volume manufacturing facility. Due to the confidential nature of the project, further specific information will only be shared once the fellow has been selected for this position. It is mandatory for the selected fellow to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) with the sponsoring industry, to carry out the investigations related to this project.

Duration of the project: 24 months

Project position and number: JRF, One in number

Fellowship amount: 28000 per month
