Recruitment of Research Associates, Project Associates, Technical Assistants and Administrative Assistant in RISE.
Our research has major focus on
• Emphasis on the use of Earth Abundant Materials for cost effectiveness of applications
• Novel Device Concepts & Architectures
• Intellectual Property Creation Keeping Pace with Emerging Technology Trends
• Outstanding Human Resource Creation
RISE is conducting comprehensive researches in valuation of different schemes for CO2 reduction, Interface engineering, and identification of challenges
Research focuses on innovative hydrogen generation schemes as well as storage and transportation of hydrogen considering Weight, Cost, Performance and Application Domain analysis
Research focuses on in the next-generation solid state and rechargeable and flexible battery technologies due to safety , operating temperature range, and potential high energy density in comparison to traditional liquid electrolyte-based systems.
RISE will continually publish scientific papers in International journals of repute based on the research conducted by the staff and students. It also work on publication of scientific journals and book reviews.View All
Initially, RISE will start an MSc and PhD course starting July 2021. This will be pursued in collaboration with IISER Pune and other institutes following different MOUs that have been or will be signed in due course.
There is also a plan to start a two year M.Tech. course in Energy Materials and Technology. In addition to the course work, this will have a strong component of hands-on laboratory work practice providing insights into the research field.
