Senior Research Scientist in Stem Cell Biology and Disease Modeling at TIGS.

Tata Institute for Genetics and Society (TIGS-CI), is a new, non-profit research entity supported by the Tata Trusts. TIGS has been operational since 2018 as an autonomous Center at inStem (TIGS-CI), within the campus of the National Center for Biological Sciences (NCBS), in Bangalore, India. Research at TIGS is concentrated on harnessing brand-new genetic technologies, such as genome editing for improvements in human health and agriculture. Specific areas of focus are vector-borne diseases, rice genetics, human hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and reversal of antibiotic resistance. TIGS also partners actively with a sister institute located at the University of California, San Diego (TIGS-UCSD) for scientific exchange and capacity building.

TIGS-CI is looking for applications from exceptional candidates for the position of Senior Research Scientist (comparable to an Assistant Professor at superb academic institutions) to direct research in human HSC biology to model and proper genetic disorders. This consists of the identification and characterization of hematopoietic disorders for therapeutic application of genome and base editing, as well as contributions to regulatory and community engagement processes. The position is for a 5-year inaugural term and the incumbent is expected to work in Bangalore at TIGS-CI.

Senior Research Scientist in Stem Cell Biology and Disease Modeling at TIGS.

This applicant will be personally engaged in, and supervise, a small team of less than 5 individuals, in the areas of HSC propagation and differentiation, will have a proven track-record evidenced by publications in genome editing of stem cells to generate and/or correct disease models, and have expertise in HSC biology. Candidates might be from a basic research or clinical background. The team will work to generate disease models, build and test brand-new genome editing constructs, establish human HSC cultures from embryonic stem cells or induced pluripotent stem cells, from patient samples and test applications of genome and base editing to achieve disease correction in human HSC. This individual will also work carefully with other genome editing and active genetics groups at TIGS to integrate new advances in this area.
