Advt No.10/2020 : Job Opening Research Assistant RA-03
Job Opening RA-03 (All candidates should list this number in their application to be taken into consideration).
TIGS-CI is seeking applications from enthusiastic research assistants to join the vector ecology and population genetics team at the Tata Institute for Genetics and Society, Bangalore. The successful applicant will join an established research group working on fundamental and applied aspects of mosquito population genetics. Our primary goal is to understand the role of vector ecology and genetics in pathogen transmission dynamics. Using fine-scale landscape genetics, we explore the relationships between heterogeneous landscape features and genetic variation in vector populations. With molecular, ecological and landscape data, together with computational, and analytical approaches, we want to quantify the effects of landscape on gene flow in vector populations which will help to understand of how the vector-borne diseases spread.
How to Apply for inStem vacancy:
If you are interested in applying for this research position, please send out the following documents, with a clear reference to the job number listed above and addressed to the following email address: [email protected].
- Cover letter with CV with email, phone and contact information of 3 referees.

Application Deadline: July 25, 2020.
Roles and Responsibilities:
The role will be to provide bioinformatics support using available software packages (commercial and open access) to underpin the processing, analysis and visualisation of genomic data arising from mosquito populations using combination bioinformatics and statistical approaches.
- Master’s degree in bioinformatics, molecular biology, life-sciences or related discipline or equivalent.
- Experience with bioinformatics analysis and a strong computational background.
- Proficiency in computer scripting (e.g. Python, Perl, R) is required.
