Senior Research Fellow:

        1. I am inviting applications from highly motivated and qualified individuals to fill one SRF positions in the Information Technology Research Academy (ITRA) Water Project: Measurement to Management (M2M): Improved water use efficiency and agricultural productivity through experimental sensor network. The M2M project is a collaborative effort of IIT Gandhinagar with many institutes and universities: IIT Kharagpur, University of California, Davis, Virginia Tech, Purdue University, University of California, Santa Barbara, and Columbia University. The overarching question that will be addressed through the M2M project is:
        2. How will an integrated framework that includes an experimental sensor network, remote sensing based monitoring, and high-resolution hydrologic modeling improve assessing water demand for current and future climate scenarios, irrigation water use efficiency and crop productivity in a sustainable manner without exploiting soil and water resources?
        3. Preferred applicants will have B.Tech/ M.Tech in Civil Engineering or closely related field with an emphasis on research areas related to hydrology, water management, climate change, and application of remote sensing in water resources. Applicants should have strong programing background (MATLAB and C), good skills and remote sensing and GIS with knowledge to use ENVI/ ERDAS softwares. Successful candidates are expected to have strong communication (both oral and written) skills.
        4. The M2M project will provide excellent opportunities to publish in top quality peer reviewed journals, attend international and national conferences, short-term visits to collaborating organizations in USA, and a strong network of professional in the field of hydrology and water resources. The project will need field visits for data collection to test and implement hydrologic models (VIC, SWAT, and Noah), therefore experience in hydrologic modeling will be beneficial. The successful candidates will be expected to enroll in PhD program in Civil Engineering at IIT Gandhinagar. Other than travel expenses, successful candidates will get 18,000+HRA as monthly salary.

How to apply:

Interested candidates are encouraged to send their CV to Vimal Mishra, Assistant Professor, Civil Engineering ([email protected]) before November 25, 2014. Shortlisted candidates will be informed and called for interview which will be held at IIT Gandhinagar.
