Walk in interview for Junior Research Fellow (JRF) in a research project funded by Department of Science and Technology, India.

Title: Quantum heat engines: work, entropy and information at nanoscale

This project in theory aims to understand the thermodynamic processes and work extraction in models of heat engines using simple quantum systems as the working medium. The proposal provides an opportunity to study interplay of concepts from thermodynamics, information and quantum theory.
