Applications are invited on plain paper along with a copy of up-to-date CV, for
01 (one)
position of Junior Research Fellow (36 months) for the implementation
of a
Science & Technology (DST)' research project trlled, "synthesis of novel membranes
their applications in vtaste m.inimisalion crncl recovery of valuable chemicals om dilute
acllrcous streams", coordinated by Prof. Anand V. Patwardhan and Dr.
Patwardha' (Department of chemical Engineering, ICT, Mumbai).
The specific objectives of the project are:
1. Synthesis of ceramic I zeolite membranes using previously reported synthesis methods.
2. Characterisation of synthesised membranes using techniques such as XRD, SEM,
etc. to relate the observed membrane performance
to its structure
and the synthesis
3. Testing of synthesised membranes for use in recovery of solvents from dilute aqueous
Long term
are to develop in-house capabilities in the area of membrane
yarious applications, and to identify relationship between membrane
synthesis methods, membrane properties, and performance of the membrane
in terms of the
flux and selectivity. The potential applications of this work would be in several diverse
fields, such as, water treatment, water remediation, fuel cells. etc.
