Salary : 300000 - 336000 P.A
Job Type : full-time
Key skills : Chemical Engineering 
Job Description :

Advertisement: Applications are invited for the post of “Junior Research Fellow” (JRF) in a SERB, DST Funded Project Advertisement Applications are invited for a Junior Research Fellow (JRF) in a research project funded by Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB), Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India under the supervision of Dr. Karnail B. Singh, Department of Chemical Engineering, School of Engineering, Shiv Nadar University. The position is temporary and is available immediately. The candidate may be allowed to register for Ph.D. in the University. For more information, please visit Dr. Karnail B. Singh’s webpage at: About the Project

About the Project: The project aims to investigate the Phenomena of Film Formation in Bio-Polymers Based Edible Films and Coatings for Food Packaging Applications. The global food packaging market is expected to grow to $306 billion by 2019 with major requirement coming from Asia-Pacific. Indian market is expected to grow at even higher rate of 8% for the next 5 years. Hence the demand for food packaging material is going to increase further. However, the current packaging material, the synthetic plastics from petroleum sources is causing a serious threat to the environment due to its non-degradability. Hence, there is a need to go for packaging material that are environmental friendly and Edible Films and Coatings are one very promising alternative for this. This project has the following specific objectives:

1. To develop fundamental understanding of the film formation and cracking process in aqueous dispersions of bio-polymers

2. To study the effect of various parameters such as Polymer Tg, Particle Size, Process conditions (Humidity and Temp.) etc. on the process of film formation.

3. To study film formation in soft-hard blends of bio-polymers such as cellulose and proteins

4. To develop a theoretical model to explain the observed experimental results

Qualification: Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering/Food Science and Technology, Bio-Technology, Polymer Science and Engineering with minimum 55% marks from a recognized university. Desirable: It is preferable that the candidate is GATE qualified (attach a copy of the score card) or with any equivalent fellowship or having experience in Bio-polymers, Edible Coatings and Films, etc.

Fellowship Details: 25,000 (consolidated) (in Ist & IInd year); 28,000 (consolidated) per month (in IIIrd year) as per SERB norms Duration 1+2 years (Extension to second year is based on the performance in the first year).

How to Apply: Applicants are requested to send a cover letter outlining previous research experiences and reasons for joining this position along with complete CV, educational mark sheets/certificates (from 10thonwards), copy of prior publication(s) (if any), and name of one referee, and other relevant documents as PDF attachment by email (or hard copies by Speed Post or Courier service) to reach the below mentioned address on or before 31st July 2017:
