Vacancies are available in our group in the following areas:
(i) Electronic Materials and Devices
Multiferroic and magnetoelectric materials and thin film devices
Energy materials and devices such as solar cells, batteries, energy harvesting with current emphasis on Perovskite Solar Cells, Organic Solar Cells, Piezoelectric and Triboelectric Energy Harvesting.
(ii) Metallic Materials
Alloy development for engineering applications such as high strength materials and magnetic steels
We also work on other topics of interest in materials science and metallurgy
Although you can contact me, you would still need to formally apply to the Department of Sustainable Energy Engineering which can be done online. In case of PhD candidates, if shortlisted, you will be called for the written test and interview. Those interested may look out for the advertisement on the IIT Kanpur website. Masters students are directly selected.
We welcome motivated PDFs in projects who are normally hired via advertisement depending on the project vacancy. However, you can get in touch if you are motivated and intersted to join our group. We welcome those with Inspire or SERB NPDF or other fellowships in our laboratory based on mutual agreement on research topics and interests.
