Research Associate/Postdoc Fellow Under MoES Funded Project at IISER Mohali | Application Deadline 31st July

Applications are invited for Research Associate/Postdoc Fellow Under MoES Funded Project at IISER Mohali for the year 2021. The final date of application is 31 July.

IISER-Mohali (Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences) wishes to have interaction with a Research Associate under the MoES sponsored research project at IISER-Mohali. The last date for applications is 31.07.2021


Essential Qualification: PhD; Awarded for research in Atmospheric Sciences or Meteorology or Physics or Chemistry or Remote Sensing or Computer Sciences or Data Sciences or Chemical Engineering or Geotechnical Engineering or Environmental Engineering

Experience in Python programming, atmospheric chemical transport modelling (e.g. with WRF-Chem) or dispersion modelling (e.g. with AEROMOD) or chemical box modelling (e.g. with F0AM, Capram or isoropia) or satellite and remote sensing, or source receptor modelling and dealing with big data is of advantage.

Project details

The project will even involve lengthy periods of field work in New Delhi for data acquisition. The candidate will process large datasets and will subject them to advanced statistical analysis together with cluster analysis and optimistic matrix factorization modelling, source-receptor modelling and chemical transport modelling. The tools were deployed to measure a number of hundred organic compounds with a 1-minute time resolution and generates >300 MB of data per day. Hence the candidate must be comfortable in coding data processing routines and dealing with large datasets.

The candidates must be prepared to undertake field work together with source sampling near point sources. The work is physically demanding and the candidate should be physically matched. Thus, it’s essential that the candidate is very motivated and passionate about field-based research as these outcomes will contribute towards providing evidence-based decision making with regard to gas and aerosol pollution in Delhi.


Initially for 1 year with provision for extension by another year and notice period of 1 month by both sides.

Application Process

Candidates are requested to send their detailed CV by 31st July 2021 through e-mail highlighting abilities acceptable for the position at the following e-mail address with subject title mentioning “Application for RA position: RASAGAM”. Applications submitted without following these directions can be rejected without additional consideration. [email protected].
