Name of Post – Post-Doctoral Fellow in Cell Biology

No. of Posts – 01

Appointing Organization – Tata Translational Cancer Research Centre
Tata Medical Center, Kolkata

The Tata Medical Center and the Tata Translational Cancer Research Centre

The Tata Medical Center (TMC) is a multispecialty institution for tertiary cancer care. At TMC, clinical and research activities are integrated to provide state-of-the-art care for patients with cancer. This integration is enabled by the Tata Translational Cancer Research Centre (TTCRC), the research arm of TMC. At TTCRC, a multidisciplinary team of clinicians, scientists, academics and industry professionals collaborate to develop a systems medicine approach in cancer research. This approach is focused on developing innovative, indigenous, cost-effective and equitable strategies to improve cancer diagnosis; develop treatments that match disease

characteristics and are adapted to treatment response; and, identify prognostic and predictive disease biomarkers. These strategies are multi-dimensional and involve an iterative pathway that includes clinical studies, high-throughput laboratory investigations, computational strategies to integrate, analyse and model data, hypothesis-based pre-clinical studies and evidence-based translation of findings to clinical practice.

The Position

In this position, the candidate will work with a group developing pre-clinical organoid models of gallbladder cancer. The primary responsibility will be to optimise and extend ongoing work on developing, establishing and maintaining suitable primary cultures from tissue samples using different processes. This involves working closely with the hospital’s multidisciplinary clinical service, the tissue biorepository unit and colleagues in the cancer cell biology group. The candidate will participate in downstream functional studies using these model systems, to investigate disease biology and identify therapeutic potentials. The group uses high-throughput discovery screens coupled with systematic hypothesis-driven studies to investigate potential leads from clinical observations and proteogenomic studies. Integral to this approach is the development of suitable pre-clinical tumour models that closely recapitulate disease and that are robust and reproducible. The candidate’s work will be focused on preclinical modelling of the disease process. Expertise in the area of 3-D tissue culture and or drug profiling is desirable.

How to Apply

Appointment and reporting

Appointment to the position will initially be for 1 (one) year. The consolidated monthly salary is INR 25,000. The position is funded by a centre grant from Tata Consultancy Services. The successful applicant will be managed by the Lead Scientist in Cell Biology and will report to the Director.
