Applications are invited for two Junior Research Fellowships for a nanomission project in a broad area of “Design and fabrication of reusable devices for sensing and biosensing applications” at Center for Nano and Material Sciences (CNMS), Jain University, Bangalore, Karnataka, India. Candidates should be available to start the project immediately.
Qualification and Experience:
- Sc. in Chemistry or related subjects. Candidate should have obtained at least 55% marks in qualifying degree examination.
- Preference will be given to experiences candidates or CSIR-UGC NET (JRF/LS) or GATE qualified candidate.
- The ability to work closely and collaborate with colleagues is a must. Proficiency with the English language is required.
Depending on the candidate’s qualifications and expertise, minimum stipend starts from Rs 15,000 per month as per university rules.
Duration: Initial appointment is for one year, extendable up to 3 years based on performance. Objectives of the 3 years position is to gain knowledge and experience in an international collaboration environment which should lead into number of peer reviewed articles and review papers, which should complement the PhD thesis.
How to apply:
Application should contain a detailed resume, one photograph and contact details including phone number, email and postal address. Please also mention preferred date of joining if selected.
Completed applications should reach A/Prof Mahaveer Kurkuri, Nano-Bio Group, Jain Global Campus, 45 km, NH – 209, Jakkasandra Post, KanakapuraTaluk, Ramanagar District -562 112, Bangalore Rural, Karnataka, India at the earliest.

Only shortlisted candidates will be called for the interview. Selected candidates will be intimated by email. No TA/DA will be paid for appearing in the interview.
About the Group and its focus:
The group has its focus to work on biosensors, microfluidic devices, cancer, lab-on-a-chip devices, ion detection, water remediation and nanotechnology. Please refer our webpage to know more about our group at http://cnms.jainuniversity.ac.in/Faculty-Mahaveer.htm .
In this project we aim to develop lab-on-a-chip kind of devices for various applications including in sensing and biosensing of toxins of concern. State of the art lithographic techniques will be used to design and fabricate novel devices in PDMS material which will be used to isolate circulating tumour cells (CTCs) from PBS sample initially followed by from whole blood samples. The results will be compared with the already commercialized product and high quality publications will be sought throughout the project. Project is also about developing novel nano materials and their surface modification to enhance the overall performance of the devices.
Facilities available in campus: A very good hostel and mess facilities are available, for more details check http://cnms.jainuniversity.ac.in/Social-facilities.htm
