Junior Research Fellow - Molecular Medicine
Post: Junior Research Fellow
Qualification: Candidate must have a Master’s degree in any area of Life Sciences and a fellowship from CSIR/DBT/ICMR/or other equivalent funding agencies to support him/herself.
No. of Vacancies: One
Experience: 0-1 year
Salary: As per CSIR/UGC norms, candidates should have their own fellowship
Application Due Date: 07.06.2017
Brief Description about the Project:
- We seek to recruit a talented, independent and a motivated Junior Research Fellows on a joint project between Dr. Neha Vyas from St. John’s Research Institute, Bangalore, and Dr. Tina Mukherjee from Instem, Bangalore, entitled “Genetic screen to identify modifiers of myeloid progenitor cell development and maintenance using Drosophila larval lymph gland as the model system”. The screen is designed to identify molecular players using the Drosophila larval hematopoietic organ lymph gland as the screening platform. The candidates identified from the screen will be correlated to Chronic Myeoloid Leukemia (CML) patient derived bone-marrow aspirates. This strategy will reveal conserved players involved in CML progression and drug resistance, which will be further tested in a relevant CML cell line.
- To work on the mentioned project
- A basic understanding of genetics, molecular and developmental biology will be essential. Laboratory training in Drosophila work or candidates with strong research experience will be preferred. The position is also open to registering for a PhD following the candidate’s work interest and exceptional performance.
Interested candidates may also send their resume to:
St. John’s Research Institute,
St. John’s National Academy of Health Sciences,
Opp. Koramangala BDA Complex, 100 ft Road,
