NIAS is recognized as a center for research by the Government of India (GOI) and several
universities. We are seeking capable and enthusiastic PhD students and Field Assistants
interested to conduct multi-disciplinary research in the Energy and Environment Program
(“Program”) at NIAS. The Program has recently secured a 5-year grant from the Ministry of
Earth Sciences (MOES) “to understand the Interaction between components of Earth and
Human Systems at various Spatial and Temporal Scales.” The specific objectives of this
research grant are as follows:

• To study the impact of air quality on health at the local & regional levels, and examine
ways and means to mitigate the same;
• To study the spatial-temporal, seasonal and long-term trends in the level of atmospheric
pollutants and their inter-linkages;
• To identify pathways of pollutants and relative contribution between local versus distant
sources along with its interpretation for select regions;
• To study the microclimate of select metropolitan cities with the goal of assessing relative
contribution of different emission sources;
• To make comprehensive assessments of seasonal air pollution scenario to develop
strategies, enablers, and action plans to transition to a more environment-friendly and
sustainable energy/transportation mix;
• To understand the water-energy-agriculture nexus in select areas where there is
competing use of surface water in agriculture and in thermal power plants to provide a
basis for cost-benefit analysis of optimization measures for the sharing of water between
agriculture and power generation to enhance sustainable operations in both sectors;
• To establish a baseline case for assessing potential improvements in technologies and
practices to optimize usage of water in thermal power plants in general, and those located
in water-deficit regions in particular;
• To develop policy formulations designed to make energy services accessible, affordable,
and sustainable to the households who are unserved and/or under-served;
• To study socio-economic impact of select MOES’s programs with reference to the SDGs;
To contribute towards MOES’s Polymetallic Nodules (PMN) Program, esp. with
reference to its potential environmental impact.
