Description of Lab: Cancer development is a complex process involving the accumulation of genetic alteration in genes that normally regulate cell proliferation, differentiation, and death. In the laboratory, my research team seeks to understand the molecular mechanisms
underlying the development of central nervous system tumors, particularly gliomas, which
are tumors arising from glial cells. The grade IV glioma (Glioblastoma; GBM) is the most
common, malignant primary brain tumor in adults. The prognosis remains poor, with median survival ranging from 12-17 months despite improvements in the treatment protocol. While the primary aim of the KSS lab is to understand glioma biology, we also develop biomarkers/signatures for better grading, prognosis, and treatment. Some specific aspects of the study focus on miRNA, DNA/RNA, and chromatin modifications. We also use next-generation sequencing to identify novel genetic alterations and gene fusions in gliomas.

Position I

Job Title: Junior/Senior research fellow @ Indian Institute of Science for Bioinformatics.

Job Description:

  • The KSS lab of the Microbiology and Cell Biology department of IISc is looking for
    individuals who are well versed with Next Generation Sequencing and Microarray
    data analysis.
  • The primary research interest of the lab is the genetics of brain tumors.
  • The work will include analysis of NGS data (WGS, WES, RNA-Seq, and ChIP-Seq)
    data to detect novel variants and genetic abnormalities associated with cancer of glial
    cells.
  • Furthermore, variants identified through NGS analysis will be correlated with gene
    expression and methylation status of in-house and external tumor samples and vice
    versa.
  • A minimum of 2 years of commitment is necessary.
  • Additional details regarding the ongoing work in the lab can be obtained from the lab
    website: http://www.maiyas.co/MCBL/faculty/kumaravel-somasundaram/#

Additional Skills Required:

  • Applicants must have previous experience in NGS data analysis and Microarray data
    analysis.
  • Applicants must be comfortable with the Linux operating system and command-line
    interface.
  • Applicants must be well versed with at least one programming language, R/ Python,
    etc.

Eligibility: B.Tech/B.E./MSc or higher in Bioinformatics/Computational Biology.
NET/CSIR/BINC qualified will be preferred.

Note:

  • A short write-up of NGS based / Microarray-based project is mandatory.
  • Contact information of three referees should be provided.
