Government Latest Jobs



The Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), Pune is an autonomous research organization under Ministry of Earth Sciences, New Delhi, fully devoted to cutting edge research in various aspects of weather and climate science. The activities include training of post graduates and motivate them to take up research careers in atmospheric and oceanic sciences required to improve skill of weather and climate forecasts.
The Institute has excellent infrastructural facilities such as India’s first Multi Petaflop Super Computer, observational facilities like RADARS, Radiometers, LIDAR etc., modern library, workshop and other scientific support. It has a strong link with various universities and national and international organizations. Major research areas at the institute are climate modelling, climate change projections, Climate variability and climate dynamics, extended range and seasonal forecasts, physics and dynamics of tropical clouds, aerosol- cloud-precipitation interaction, air pollution monitoring, modelling and prediction, satellite and radar meteorology and paleoclimatology.
