Job Title: Junior Research Fellow (JRF)/Project Associate-1

Number of Vacancy: 02 (one in EEE department and one in Chemistry department)

Project Title: Design and development of a multi output high voltage gain converter with
multi-frequency operation for PV applications and green hydrogen generation.
Funding Agency: Power Electronics Technology Phase-III (NaMPET-III) Programme

Principal Investigator:

Dr. Rajneesh Kumar, Department of EEE
Principal CoInvestigator
Dr. Surojit Pande, Department of Chemistry

Qualification: For Dr. Rajneesh:
For EEE, ME in power electronics (or related area)
For Dr. Surojit Pande:

The candidate must hold a M.Sc degree in Chemistry (Inorganic/Physical
Chemistry background) or equivalent with first class. The candidate must pass
the B.Sc examination with 55% marks.


(a) NET/GATE qualified

(b) Knowledge in nanomaterial synthesis and electrochemistry will be
preferred. Proficiency in dealing with data analysis software e.g. Origin, Excel.

Registration for PhD.:

Selected candidates will be given the opportunity for a full time PhD program
at BITS, Pilani as per the institute norms.

Project Tenure: 2 Years

Job Description: In this research proposal we are designing a new DC-DC converter with
multi-output capability. Proposed converter will be more efficient than the existing ones and efficiency is likely to be more than 95%. Multi frequency operation is likely to reduce the size of converter with reduction in magnetic component. Designed converter will be tested under different loading conditions applicable for solar PV rooftop power of ~2kW rating. (This work\ will be performed with Dr. Rajneesh)

In addition to conventional loading, we are proposing a new application of green hydrogen production using one of the outputs of designed converter. Fabrication of two-electrode configuration for solar-light driven green hydrogen generation using doped 2D thin sheets (hydroxides and sulphides of Ni) as both anode and cathode (PV-EC coupled system) is also proposed in this research work. This will introduce a new application of rooftop solar PV based system. (This work will be performed with Dr. Surojit)

The candidate will be actively engaged in writing research articles and patents.

How to Apply:

Applications along with updated CV should be sent through mail to [email protected]. (for Dr. Rajneesh Kumar) and [email protected]. (for Dr. Surojit Pande). Shortlisted candidates will be informed for the interview. Mere possession of minimum qualification does not guarantee an invitation to the interview. Candidates will be shortlisted based on their merit and as per the requirement of the project. Please note that only qualified and suitable candidates will be called for an interview.

Application Deadline: 20th March 2023
