Advertisement for Junior Research Fellow (JRF) Position

Applications are invited from highly motivated and eligible candidates for a Junior Research Fellow (JRF) position in a SERB funded project titled “Designing Bimetallic Complexes with Cooperative Metal-Metal Interactions for the Multi-electron Reduction of Small Molecules”.  

Objective:

  • Synthesis of new bifunctional pincer ligands with disparate metal binding sites which are selective towards different metal ions.
  • Study of complexation of the new ligands with transition metals. Complete characterisation of new metal complexes with usual spectroscopic methods (IR, UV-Vis, NMR, Mass, etc.) and single crystal X-ray diffraction studies.
  • Investigation of reactivity of new metal complexes towards small molecules and catalytic applications in suitable reactions.

Qualification:

Essential Qualification: M.Sc. in Chemistry with valid CSIR-UGC NET or GATE score.

Desirable Qualification: Candidates with prior research experience can be given preference.

For more details, please read the advertisement. Interested candidates should apply along with their CV to Dr. Amrendra K. Singh via e-mail: aks@iiti.ac.in latest by August 19, 2018.
