Job description

{for Posts No. 1, 2, 3, 4 & 6 viz. Scientist-F Gr.IV(5) to Scientist-C Gr.IV(2)}:
These are scientific positions for independent investigators requiring the capacity to generate new and exciting ideas and/or technical approaches and take them to fruition. Participation in team-work and ability to interact with research groups in other related areas is also highly desirable.

{for Post No. 5 & 7 viz. Scientist-B Gr.IV(1)}:

Scientists in this category would be expected to work as part of a group.

Desirable (for all positions) : It is desired that applicants have a demonstrated record of scientific accomplishment in the form of either

(i) peer-reviewed publications in scientific journals of high international standing, and/or
(ii) internationally valid patents, in addition to indications of independence in scientific conceptualization and implementation.

Candidates should submit letters of commendation from at least three, but preferably five, professional referees addressed directly to the Director, IMTECH under sealed cover/E-mail.

Essential (for all positions) :- Candidates must specify the level/post for which they wish to be considered, keeping in mind that they need to fulfill the essential qualifications detailed above for any post that they are applying for.
