This job expires in :
Name of the Position : Postdoctoral Position
Title : Building Connections during Competition: Role of Proteins Associated with Cell-Cell
Junctions and Epithelial Polarity in Cell Competition
Duration : Initially one year and extendable up to 3 years upon evaluation
Salary : As per TIFR norms
Objective : Cell competition is a collective phenomenon, in which a relatively ‘unfit’ cell population in the epithelium is eliminated by the surrounding ‘superior’ cells. It
provides a basic epithelial defense mechanism against cancer. This project will attempt to understand how different components of cell-cell junctions as well as proteins associated with the apicobasal polarity of epithelial cells influence the intercellular force
transduction and thereby, the modes of cell-cell interactions during cell competition. The experiments will mainly involve animal cell culture, gene-silencing, molecular cloning, immunocytochemistry, and high-resolution microscopy. Furthermore, the work will be complemented and integrated with several cellular force-measuring techniques such as traction force microscopy and optical force microscopy.

Qualifications : The applicant should already hold a PhD degree (preferred) or have
submitted his/her thesis.
Expertise : A strong training in molecular cloning, animal cell culture, and confocal
microscopy is must. The candidate should have extensive working knowledge of gene
knockdown by shRNA or siRNA-based methods. Candidates having working experience with
CRISPR-based gene knockdown method would be given preference, if other conditions are
How to Apply:
Interested applicants should email to Dr. Tamal Das (email: [email protected]) enclosing:
1. a curriculum vitae
2. a one-page cover letter describing their past research works and
accomplishments, general research interests, and career goals)
3. names and contact information of at least three references
Selection Process : A short skype or walk-in meeting will be held before 2nd April, 2018.
Short-listed candidate(s) will be called for a presentation-cum-interview before an institute level committee shortly after that. Final decision will be made on the basis of the
performance at this presentation-cum-interview.
