JRF Under SERB Funded Project at IIT Jammu: Apply by April 18

Applications are invited for JRF Under SERB Funded Project at IIT Jammu for the year 2022. The last date of application is 18 April.

Applications are invited from the interested candidates for the post of Junior Research Fellow (JRF) to work on the project titled “Natural Zeolite based efficient N₂, CO₂ adsorption for cost-effective oxygen concentrator” sanctioned by Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB), India.


  • Essential Qualification: M. Tech in Chemical Engineering/ Material Engineering or equivalent with at least 60% marks in aggregate from a recognized technical institute/university as a full-time program. Preference may be given to the candidate having appropriate knowledge of experimentation and scientific writing.
  • Desired Qualification: Theoretical or experimental knowledge of zeolite/nanocomposites synthesis,
    characterization and oxygen concentrators along.
  • Upper age limit: 30 years

Objective of the Project

The main objective of this proposal is to demonstrate an oxygen concentrator device with natural zeolites like clinoptilolite inherent with pressure/vacuum swing adsorption (PVSA) technology capable of selectivity of nitrogen and Co2 from air and efficient adsorption of O2. This whole setup will comprise of all the indispensable components to provide pure O2.

The following specific objectives will be addressed through this proposal:

  • A portable concentrator prototype design with ~90 vol % enriched oxygen stream in a continuous adsorption and desorption cycle (cycle time ~90 s).
  • Flow rate and absorption efficiency validation with optimized process parameters using natural zeolites as an alternative absorbent.

Job Description

The selected candidate is expected to work on the synthesis, characterization and optimization of oxygen concentrator unit.


Duly filled application form along with the requested details, scanned copies of certificates, other supporting documents, should be uploaded through the online portal latest by 18th April 2022.

Please apply through the [contract/project staff/JRF/SRF] tab on the referred application portal. Candidates who are already employed should produce a relieving certificate from their employers if selected. The interview will be conducted for all shortlisted candidates.


1 Year.


Rs. 31000/- (Per month plus HRA as per GoI norms).
