State Physics in 1981, Prof. Krupanidhi held a
post doctoral positions at Queen's University,
Canada till 1984. He then worked as Principal
Scientist at Motorola in Albuquerque till 1988
prior to joining the Pennsylvania State University
as a Professor. Since 1995 he has been a member
of the faculty at MRC.
|Awards and Recogitions:
- Two Engineering Invention Awards at Motorola, USA, 1986
- MRSI Medal, India, 1997
- Fellow of Indian Academy of Sciences, 2003
- VASVIK Medal, 2004
- MRS Superconductivity-Materials Science Award, 2004
- Tatachem Chair Professor, Indian Institute of Science, 2006
- Rustum Choksi Medal for research excellence, 2006
- J.C. Bose Fellow, (2008-present)
Prof. S. B. Krupanidhi, Materials
Research Centre has been selected for J. C.
Bose National fellowship for the year 2008,
constituted by Department of Science and Technology.
The J C Bose Fellowship was instituted to
give a boost to scientific research in the country
on August 5, 2005. The Prime Minister, in his
speech made on the occasion of the S.S, Bhatnagar
Awards function held on 25th September 2005,
had stated that the three Awards announced recently,
viz., Ramanujam Fellowship, J.C. Bose Fellowship
and also Fellowships for Scientists and Technologists
of Indian Origin, are part of the Government's
effort to create exciting career opportunities
for Scientists to retain their talent at home.
The fellowship, constituted by the Department
of Science and Technology, Government of India,
recognizes active, performing scientists and
engineers in the country, for their outstanding
performance and contributions, below the age
of 60 years. The fellowships are scientist-specific,
very selective and have close academic monitoring.
A High level Search-cum-Selection Committee
under the Prime Minister of India makes the
selection. The J C Bose Fellows are provided
a fellowship of Rs 20,000 per month in addition
to their regular income. A contingency of Rs
5 lakh per annum is provided towards conference
participation and other expenses. The fellowship
is for a term of five years initially.
