Engineering Mechanics Unit
The Engineering Mechanics Unit have openings at the level of Faculty Fellow in the following areas;
1. Computational Fluid Dynamics, especially of relevance to biological or geophysical applications or in turbomachinery technology and complex fluids.
2. Control theory, especially with reference to control of continuous systems, in particular those arising in fluid dynamics, aerodynamics or solid mechanics applications. 3. Modern solid mechanics, with special reference to experiments or computer simulations at the molecular level to such problems as fracture etc.
Although the Unit wishes to pursue research in the above areas, applicants with outstanding records in other areas of research are also encouraged to apply.
Typically the candidate will have a PhD with a few years' of experience and evidence in the form of good publications.
The position of Faculty Fellow is equivalent to that of an Assistant Professor; the scale of pay is 12,000-420-18,300 with allowances as admissible; remuneration will total Rs.23,460/- at the minimum of the scale.
