Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Kolkata (IISER Kolkata) invites application for the position Junior Research Fellow
No. of Post: 01
Title of project: Design of appropriate DFT method to mimic pressure effect on atoms and molecules confined in various environment
Funding agency : DST/SERB
Principal investigator: Prof. Amlan K. Roy, Professor, Dept. of Chemical Sciences, IISER Kolkata.
Remuneration: As per DST/SERB rules.
Tenure: Initially for one year, with the possibility of extension, for another year, depending on the availability of fund and satisfactory performance.
Basic Eligibility Criteria: Highly motivated candidates interested in Theoretical Chemistry/physics, with M.Sc. in Chemistry or Physics (minimum 55% marks in M.Sc).
Candidates should have a strong theoretical background (with knowledge on quantum mechanics/chemistry) and would be expected to carry out theoretical development on Density Functional Theory (DFT).
Additional experience (desirable): Preference will be given to NET/GATE qualified candidates. Exposure to Linux and computer programming will also be helpful. Candidates with previous working experience in confined systems and Density functional Theory will be given preference. Experience in code developement will also be beneficial.
