BITS Pilani Chemical Engineering Job 2021 – Applications Invited

Applications are invited for a Junior Research Fellow (JRF) position in the Department of Chemical Engineering at BITS Pilani- K.K. Birla Goa Campus for an ONGC Energy Centre Sponsored Collaborative Project as per the details given below:

Project Title: Design, Development and Bench-scale Demonstration of Electrochemical Hydroiodic Acid (HI) Decomposition in a Continuous Flow System for I-S Cycle

Sponsor: ONGC Energy Centre (OEC)

Qualifications: B.E./B.Tech/M.E./M.Tech. in Chemical Engineering or equivalent Engineering disciplines with min. 60% marks in the preceding examination. Preference will be given to candidates with having GATE scores.

Emoluments: 31,000/- per month

Duration: 2 years

Accommodation: Hostel accommodation will be provided subject to availability and subject to rules and regulations of the Institute.

Project Overview: Hydrogen is expected to play an important role in India’s energy sector as a green carbon-neutral energy source while addressing the ever-increasing energy demand. Among the various green hydrogen production technologies from water, hybrid thermochemical cycles which use heat, electricity, and chemical recycling agents offer a scalable and efficient method of producing hydrogen on a large scale. The current project aims to solve some of the major challenges associated with the iodine section of

the IodineSulfur thermochemical cycle by developing an alternative low-temperature electrochemical system.

The broad objective of the proposed project is to design, develop and test a continuous flow system for electrochemical Hydroiodic processing as an alternative to the
conventional high-temperature iodine section of the I-S cycle. This project is a part of an ongoing effort in large scale hydrogen production headed by the ONGC Energy Centre in collaboration with various research institutes and organizations in India, including
Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi (IIT Delhi), CSIR Labs, Institute of Chemical Technology (ICT) Mumbai, etc.

How to Apply:

Applications with detailed CVs and scanned copies of mark sheets (high school onwards) should reach the PI by 20 th December 2021 by email. In addition to the above documents, submitting a short (1-2 pages) write-up on your technical abilities, your
motivation for this project position along with the application is encouraged. The applicant will be responsible for the authenticity of the information, other documents, and photographs submitted. Candidates who are already employed should produce relieving certificates from their employers if selected.

The application is to be sent only by email to [email protected]. The shortlisted candidates will be intimated by email and called for an interview.
