Company Profile:

The institute has evolved over the years into a multi-disciplinary research organization with stress on fundamental research in its pursuit of advancement of knowledge in Science and technology and at the same time developing highly competent and able scientific manpower for the country. The institute has on its staff highly qualified and experienced scientists working in the field of Biological, biochemical, Chemical and Physical sciences placed in long established departments of Physics, Chemistry, Botany, Microbiology, Biochemistry, and Biophysics, and the research sections on plant Molecular & Cellular Genetics, Animal Physiology, Immunotechnology and Environmental science.

Job Details:

Essential Qualifications: M.Sc. in Environmental Science / Chemistry / Atmospheric Sciences / Meteorology from a recognised University / Institution with NET / GATE / JEST qualified.

Desirable Qualifications: Good knowledge in the field of atmospheric chemistry/physics, air quality, aerosols etc., computer usage and software packages. Special preference will be given to those who have experience in air pollution and air quality monitoring and analytical instruments. The fellow will mainly be engaged in research activities to be carried out under this project at the Kolkata and Shyamnagar campus of Bose Institute. He/She will have to conduct various surveys in West Bengal and other states of India.

Fellowship: Rs. 25,000/- p.m., plus 30% HRA.

Age: Below 28 years as on the day on which the application is made. (relaxable in case of SC/ST/OBC/Women candidates as per rules).

Duration: Initially for two years as JRF and would be upgraded to SRF based on performance upto the tenure of the project.

Job Description:

The project will involve in finding sources of carbonaceous aerosols with seasonal and spatial resolution.
Receptor modelling approaches using aerosol chemical species concentrations and meteorological parameters as inputs will be used toward this end.
The specific objectives of the project are the identification of a regionally representative location for particle sampling for black carbon source apportionment, analysis of seasonal variations in source contributions to ultrafine aerosols as related to meteorology (using trajectory analysis and trajectory based receptor models) and emissions (from emissions inventory), studies on the role of carbonaceous aerosols as cloud condensation nuclei and their effect and interaction with precipitation; studies on the effect on fine mode aerosols and its carbonaceous components on atmospheric radiative forcing and heating rate.

Venue Details:

Centenary Campus of Bose Institute,
P-1/12, C.I.T. Scheme VII-M, Kolkata 700054.
