Project Title: Longitudinal effects of air pollution exposures on lung growth and development of biomarker of lung function deficit in urban children About the project: This multi-centric, multi-partner DBT-Wellcome Trust India Alliance funded project has following aims a. to measure the growth of lung function in schoolchildren ( age 11 to 14 years), over period of 5 years, b. to assess the long-term exposures of traffic related air pollution in schools and homes of the children in four cities – Bengaluru, Delhi, Mumbai and Mysuru, and c. to study the association between air pollution and lung function in children and examine the individual and community level factors modifying their association. The study involves field monitoring of air pollution in schools and homes, laboratory chemical analysis of collected particulate matter (PM2.5), conducting spirometry, biosamples collection and administering structured questionnaire surveys.

Job Profile: 1. Assisting in conducting air pollution measurements in urban homes and schools in four cities (Mumbai, Delhi, Mysuru, Bengaluru) during two seasons. 2. Filter conditioning, weighing and sample preparation and air sampler preparation/ flow calibration for field work. 3. Filter extraction and laboratory chemical characterization of PM samples (for elemental and organic carbon, trace elements and heavy metals, and inorganic ions) and human biosamples and household dust (for heavy metals). 4. Development of GIS variables for air pollution exposure modeling. 5. Basic statistical analysis, chemical data summarization and report preparation.

General information: The candidate will require to travel ~10% time to the field sites which will include urban areas in Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru, and Mysuru. The position is temporary for a period of 1 year and tenable only for the duration of the project. The appointment is for time bound project and the candidate is required to work mainly for the successful completion of the project.
