Possible interview questions for the technical round of the Student Trainee/Intern position:

  1. Can you describe your research interest in the field of molecular biology, biotechnology, biochemistry, or plant science? How does it align with the objectives of the SERB project mentioned in the job description? Answer: My research interest lies in the field of molecular biology, specifically in understanding plant-microbe interactions and the mechanisms of plant defense responses. I find the topic of fungal endophyte-induced systemic resistance and herbivory intriguing, as it explores the complex interactions between plants, microbes, and pests. I am particularly interested in unraveling the metabolomic aspects of these interactions and their implications for plant defense strategies.
  2. What relevant experience or coursework have you gained during your B.Tech/ B.Eng/M.Sc./M.Tech studies that prepares you for this research project? Answer: During my studies, I have gained hands-on experience in molecular biology techniques, including DNA extraction, PCR, gene expression analysis, and data interpretation. I have also conducted research projects focused on plant-microbe interactions and plant defense mechanisms. Additionally, my coursework in molecular biology, biochemistry, and plant science has provided me with a strong theoretical foundation in the field.
  3. Have you worked with metabolomic analysis techniques or conducted research involving similar analytical approaches? If yes, please describe your experience and the techniques you utilized. Answer: In my previous research project, I had the opportunity to work with metabolomic analysis techniques. I employed liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) to identify and quantify small molecules in biological samples. I used data analysis software and statistical methods to interpret the obtained metabolomic data and identify metabolite biomarkers. This experience has provided me with a solid understanding of metabolomic analysis workflows and data interpretation.
  4. How do you plan to contribute to the project “Metabolomic analysis of fungal endophyte induced systemic resistance in Solanum lycopersicum on herbivory by Spodoptera litura”? What unique skills or perspectives can you bring to the research team? Answer: In this project, I aim to contribute by applying my knowledge of molecular biology and metabolomics to unravel the underlying mechanisms of fungal endophyte-induced systemic resistance in Solanum lycopersicum upon herbivory by Spodoptera litura. My understanding of plant-microbe interactions and experience in metabolomic analysis will help me identify specific metabolites associated with the plant’s defense response. I also bring strong analytical skills, attention to detail, and a passion for scientific inquiry to the research team.
  5. Can you discuss any challenges you anticipate encountering during the project and how you would address them? Answer: During the project, I anticipate challenges such as optimizing experimental protocols, dealing with sample variability, and analyzing complex metabolomic datasets. To address these challenges, I would collaborate closely with the research team to optimize experimental conditions, standardize protocols, and troubleshoot any technical issues. I would also utilize data analysis tools and statistical methods to ensure robust and reliable interpretation of the metabolomic data.

Remember, these are sample questions and answers. It’s essential to tailor your responses to your own experience, skills, and knowledge.
