Applications from highly motivated young persons are invited for one temporary project position as per the details given below:

Name of Post: SRF

Number of posts: One

Project Title: “Development of an advanced pore-scale model for predicting unsaturated soil response” Project no: SERB /CE /2022539

Minimum Qualification:

SRF: M.Tech/M.Sc. (Civil Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Earth Science, Geology, Mechanical Engineering) + 2 years of post-B.Tech research experience.

Desirable Qualification: Candidate having

  • experience in SEM and micro CT image processing,
  • experience in writing scripts in MATLAB/python,
  • knowledge of soil mechanics, and clay mineralogy,
  • knowledge of analyzing multiphase flow through porous media, and
  • knowledge of unsaturated soil mechanics.

Nature of Work: The first part of the work involves imaging of clayey soil to capture the pore structure under both dry and wet condition. Once the pore structure is extracted, multiphase flow simulation needs to be carried out through numerical modeling.

Salary: Rs. 35,000/- (consolidated)

Last date for application: 17/05/2023

The post is purely temporary, and is for duration of one year and may be extended depending on the requirement. If shortlisted, copies of relevant certificates will be required, and will be checked against original certificates at the time of interview.
