The selected candidate will be appointed on a purely temporary basis, initially for a period of one year.

Main Objectives of the Project:

  • Design, synthesis, and characterization of new organic and metal-organic compounds.
  • Crystallization of these compounds to study thermal expansion and compressibility by variable temperature X-ray diffraction experiment.
  • Analysis of the data and rationalization of the problem.

How to Apply:

Eligible and interested candidates should send their application with a complete CV (having personal details, academic qualifications, research experience, publications, name, affiliation, and email address of two referees) along with photocopies of mark sheets/testimonials/certificates, a recent passport-size photograph, and other relevant documents as a PDF attachment via email to the following address:
