Nanosolar Division at Amrita Center for Nanosciences (ACNS) is a premier research center (CENTER FOR EXCELLENCE) in the area of photovoltaics and energy storage devices. ACNS is located on Amrita's healthcare campus at Cochin. Since its inception two years ago it has established itself as one of the leading centers in nanotechnology funded by MNRE and DST, Govt of India.   The areas of research includes wide spectrum of nanoprocessing, nanostructuring, nanodesigns, nanodevice fabrication and thin film coatings with emphasis on low cost photovoltaic devices, lithium ion batteries and supercapacitors.

The centre is currently recruiting outstanding qualified CSIR/INSPIRE/DST/UGC-NET fellow researchers with creativity and zeal to achieve excellence, for pursuing PhD program in the above mentioned areas of research. 

Eligibility for PhD: Masters (MSc/MTech) in Physics/Chemistry/Materials Science/Electrochemistry/Nanotechnology/Materials Science/Energy related areas/ from any UGC recognized university in India or abroad

Qualified candidates are encouraged to send their application via email with subject line mentioning: “Application for PhD position at Nanosolar”

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
