Closure Date* None *
Thermal Systems Research Group, headed by Dr. Anurag Goyal in the mechanical 
engineering department at IIT Delhi, invites applications for graduate student 
assistantship with the potential for conversion to a full-time PhD researcher 
position. We are looking for a candidate to join as soon as possible. 

Our group uses numerical and experimental methods to develop innovative thermal 
systems for applications in HVAC, building energy efficiency, waste heat 
recovery, and water purification and desalination systems. The multiscale 
research approach spans fundamental modeling using principles of thermodynamics, 
fluid mechanics, and heat and mass transfer to fabrication and experimental 
evaluation of prototype systems.

A brief description of the project and the required qualifications are provided 

Project Description: Buildings consume a significant part of total energy in our 
economy (~30-40%), and a significant fraction of it is used for thermal end-
uses. This project will enhance the energy efficiency of commercial by 
developing and demonstrating thermal energy storage (TES) technologies for 
heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) and refrigeration 
applications. TES will benefit commercial buildings by improving the 
integration of renewable energy sources through peak load shaving and enhancing 
the resiliency of the buildings in the events of blackouts and brownouts. We 
will develop detailed models of different TES system configurations in this 
project. We will also demonstrate these technologies through lab-scale 
experiments and pilot installations. We will develop intelligent controls to 
optimize the deployment of energy storage assets. 

Candidate Qualifications: B.Tech or M.Tech in mechanical or energy engineering 
with a good academic record. Candidates with past research experience in thermal 
engineering or coursework will be preferred. 

Stipend: INR 31,000 per month + applicable HRA rate (as per the Department of 
Science and Technology, Govt. of India, Rules)

To apply for this position, send an email at with a 
complete resume listing all academic qualifications, transcripts, and 
research/job experiences along with a brief expression of interest. Feel free to 
contact in case any clarification is required.
