Applications Are Invited For The Post Of Junior Research Fellow (JRF) In A SERB Funded Project. Applications are invited for the Junior Research Fellow (JRF) post in a SERB-funded research project. Junior Research Fellow job opening 2022, SERB job opening 2022, Check out all the details on the same below:

Project Title: “Photoelectrochemical Investigation of Phosphonate-Functionalized Chromophores for Synthesis of Solar-Fuels” in the lab of Dr. Animesh Nayak, Department of Chemistry, School of Natural Sciences, Shiv Nadar Institution of Eminence, Delhi NCR.

Job Title: JRF

Job Id: 347

Department: Chemistry

Job Type: Contract

No. of Positions: 1

Project Synopsis

Development of organic chromophores that have broad light absorption and suitable excited state properties for light-induced electron transfer is crucial for photoelectrochemical H2O oxidation and CO2 reduction. This project will focus on synthesis, purification and characterization of organic and inorganic chromophores with broad absorption in the visible region. After successful synthesis, the chromophores will be investigated for photo-induced electron transfer processes on metal oxide surfaces using spectroscopic and electrochemical methods.

Nature of work

This project involves design and synthesis of new organic chromophores for photo-electrochemical studies. Work will include synthesis of organic/inorganic compounds

, purification by various chromatographic methods, characterization using NMR, MS and optical spectroscopic methods. The compounds will be studied using various electrochemical and spectroscopic methods for light-induced electron transfer processes and catalysis.

Essential and Desirable Qualifications

The candidate should have a master’s degree (with a minimum of 55% marks or an equivalent grade) in Chemistry from a UGC-recognized University or Institution.
Experiences in organic/inorganic synthesis, characterizations and electrochemistry will be preferred.

Synthesis and knowledge of nanomaterials would be an advantage.
Candidates with CSIR/UGC-NET/JEST/GATE are encouraged to apply.
Good written and oral communication skills is necessary.

Duration of the Project

Initially, six months (purely temporary), which can be extended further up to another one and half year based on satisfactory performance.


As per DST norms, the fellowship is ₹31,000/- p.m. plus HRA.

How To Apply: 

Eligible and interested candidates should send their application with a complete CV (having personal and academic details, academic qualifications, research experiences, publications, name, affiliation, and email address of at least two referees) to Dr. Animesh Nayak ([email protected]) on or before 20th December 2022. The scanned copies of marksheets/transcripts/testimonials/ certificates, a recent passport-size photograph, and other relevant documents are also requested to attach. Short-listed candidates will be communicated for an online interview.

Application deadline: 20 Dec 2022
