Applications are invited from eligible candidates for the position of Junior Research Fellow (JRF) in a National Super Computing Mission for High-Performance Computing Applications sponsored mission “Hours to Milliseconds: Leveraging machine learning methods to reduce the computation time for crop yield prediction”

This mission requires a multitalented Junior analysis fellow who can work on growing superior crop fashions, designing machine studying fashions, carry out mathematical modeling of differential equations, and has experience in laptop programming. Candidates are strongly suggested to go to the analysis group websites of Prof. Ganti S. Murthy and Dr. Satya Bulusu earlier than making use of this commercial.

Project details

The purpose of this thrilling analysis mission is to develop machine studying (ML) fashions for continental-scale crop yield prediction which will probably be orders of magnitude quicker (10s ms vs. hours) in comparison with the prevailing options. We will use the prevailing in-depth worldwide and nationwide datasets to coach machine studying fashions for India particularly crops equivalent to paddy, wheat, corn, and soybeans.

Existing phenomenological and purposeful crop fashions are complete however are very time consuming and require specialized software program to conduct simulations. These challenges preclude a speedy and in-depth ‘what if’ sort state of affairs evaluation underneath time and useful resource constraints. We will probably be using the high-performance computing services and infrastructure to totally develop machine studying primarily based fashions for speedy evaluation which will probably be helpful to many stakeholders from farmers to coverage makers.


Educational Qualifications: M.Sc/M.Tech in Agricultural/Computer/Electrical Engineering, Agronomy and Crop Science, Applied Mathematics or any equal diploma with first division at bachelors and masters ranges as outlined by the awarding Institute/University. Candidates ought to have certified GATE/JAM or any equal examination.

Required Technical Skills:

  • Knowledge of laptop programming languages ideally C/C++/Python and MATLAB.
  • Knowledge and skill to deal with massive datasets, set up and deal with databases.

Desirable Technical Skills:

  • Knowledge of crop modeling.
  • Demonstrated laboratory and laptop modeling expertise.
  • Knowledge of Machine studying strategies and superior course of management.

Desirable Soft Skills:

  • Ability to work independently.
  • Ability to resolve issues with modern multidisciplinary approaches.
  • Team participant and collaborative mindset.
  • Passionate about agriculture and engineering

Interested candidates are requested to submit an in-depth CV together with a canopy letter (one-page maximum) explaining why they need to be thought about for this place. Complete data of year of passing, expertise, marks, and so on. needs to be talked about within the CV. Incomplete applications will probably be rejected without evaluation.

Please submit your response online here.

Last date of Application: thirtieth April 2021.

Monthly Stipend

The wage will probably be as per the DST norms. As an instance, JRF might get about Rs. 30,000/month+16% HRA or campus lodging instead of HRA.


The preliminary appointment will probably be for 6-12 months, which is extendable as most of the 30 months are solely based on efficiency.
