Walk in interview for a DST/SERB project entitled “Chiral Bis(amino)cyclopropenylidenes and Bis(amino)cyclopropenimines Catalyzed Enantioselective Organocatalytic Transformations”


Essential qualifications: MSc/MS degree in Chemistry (or equivalent degree) with a valid NET JRF or GATE qualification. Candidate with experience in synthetic organic chemistry is desirable. The selected candidate is expected to perform synthesis of chiral bis(amino)cyclopropenylidenes and bis(amino)cyclopropenimines, and later execute some asymmetric transformations using those chiral organocatalysts. The candidate should be motivated and hard working. Possibility of converting the project position to a PhD position will exist for candidates clearing PhD entry requirements at IISER while working on the project work.


Emoluments: As per DST rules


Project Duration: Two years (Initially, position will be given for one year, after a satisfactory performance by the candidate this can be extended)
