JRF in Computational Physics/ Chemistry at IISER Bhopal [2 Positions]: Apply by May 24

Applications are invited for JRF in Computational Physics/ Chemistry at IISER Bhopal for the year 2022. The last date of application is 24 May.

Applications are invited from Indian nationals for TWO posts of “Junior/Senior Research Fellows” in the NSM-sponsored project LITESOPH (Layer Integrated Toolkit and Engine for Simulations of Photoinduced Phenomena).

Project description

The project involves development of a comprehensive toolkit for computer simulations of photo- induced phenomena based on the combination of two excited state dynamics approaches: ab initio techniques (based on TDDFT), and open quantum system approaches (based on simple models). Target applications shall include solar energy conversion (photovoltaics, water-splitting catalysts, solar fuels, etc.), opto-electronic materials, photochemistry and photobiology.


Essential Qualifications: M.Sc. in Physics, Chemistry (physical chemistry specialisation preferred) or related disciplines with good academic record (first class/division or minimum CPI of 7.0/10.0). Candidates with experience with computational physics/chemistry, programming in Python, familiarity with electronic structure codes will be preferred.

Candidate must have qualified a National Eligibility Test (UGC, CSIR, LS, GATE, etc.) with a valid rank/score at the time of applying for this post.

Candidates with research experience of 2 years or more may be considered for SRF.


5 months (could be extended upon satisfactory performance).


The selection will commence on 24 May, 2022, but the call will remain open until suitable candidates are found.


Applications containing cover letter, a detailed CV, name and address of 2 referees as well as a brief writeup on any research work experience should be sent by email ONLY to on or before 24th May, 2022. Shortlisted candidates will be called for an online interview.


Rs. 31,000 (JRF) / 35,000 (SRF) p.m. + HRA (16%) (as per experience).
