Walk-in-interview for a DST/SERB project entitled “Elucidation of Synthetic Methods, Structural Aspects and Reaction Chemistry of Novel Inorganic Macrocycles and Cryptands”


Essential qualifications: MSc/MS degree in Chemistry (or equivalent degree) with a valid NET JRF or GATE qualification. Candidate with strong basic knowledge and experience in synthetic inorganic and organometallic chemistry is desirable in these areas. The selected candidate is expected to perform synthesis of inorganic macrocycles and cryptands with P/N, B/N, Al/N backbones and later explore their host-guest chemistry and chemical reactivity. The selected candidate will learn to perform chemistry under air/moisture free conditions, using glove-box and Schlenk technique. The candidate should be motivated and hard working. Possibility of converting the project position to a PhD position will exist for candidate clearing PhD entry requirements at IISER Mohali while working on the project work.


Emoluments: As per DST rules
