IISER Bhopal Research Associate / Postdoc Fellow at Biological Sciences Dept
IISER Bhopal Research Associate / Postdoctoral Fellow at Biological Sciences Dept. Interested candidates can apply according to the details given below:
DEPARTMENT OF BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES
Applications are invited for the post of Research Associate / Postdoctoral Fellow in the
following research area (experimental):
Functional characterization of mitochondrial membrane protein import defects and onset of Parkinson’s disease
Qualification: Ph. D. in the broad areas of cell biology, biochemistry, biophysics. Candidates with a degree in other disciplines can also apply if they have a strong aptitude for experimental protein biochemistry. Prior research experience in working with mitochondrial proteins and yeast model systems is highly desirable.
Age: Applicant should not have completed 34 years of age at the time of joining.
Salary: Rs. 47000 per month, based on qualification and prevailing DBT/CSIR norms.
Tenure: Minimum of 1 year and a maximum of 3 years.
Job Description: Generation of a mutant library for the essential gene Tom40, membrane
protein expression, characterization of morphological and physiological changes in yeast
mitochondria, correlation of Tom40 defects with α-synuclein misimport in mitochondria,
identification of molecular and metabolic defects in yeast, data analysis. Other research-related work can be assigned from time to time.
Apply to: [email protected] with a detailed CV which includes the date of birth, recent
photograph, contact phone number, past research experience (detailed), one-page SoP, and
the names and contact details of at least two referees. Incomplete applications or those that do not meet the minimum criteria will not be considered. Shortlisted candidates will be contacted over e-mail with interview dates. Posts will be kept open until it is filled by a suitable candidate.
Description of research in the laboratory: We are working towards discovering the link
between mitochondrial membrane protein import, membrane protein folding, protein stability and function. We combine ultrafast kinetics and spectroscopic measurements with single-channel electrophysiology and cell survival assays to obtain a complete understanding of metastasis and mitochondrial bioenergetics. We link mitochondrial dysregulation with the onset of debilitating pathologies including Parkinson’s disease, other neurodegenerative disorders, and cancer.
