Post I

I) Junior Research Fellow (Project)

Total Number of Positions: 2

Upper Age limit (years): 35

Monthly Emoluments: 37,000/- p.m. + HRA as applicable/admissible to Scholars who are selected through (a) National Eligibility Tests – CSIR-UGC NET including lectureship (Assistant Professorship) or GATE or (b) A selection process through National level examinations conducted by Central Government Departments and their Agencies and Institutions.

Post Code/ No. of Positions/ Area: 020224A – 1 Position – Ecology and Evolutionary biology

Project Code/Title & Duration: GAP0563 A multidisciplinary framework to examine speciation mechanisms in the ancient terrestrial arthropod in a tropical

forest.

Essential Qualification:

Master’s degree in any branch of biology or equivalent degree from a recognized University.
Masters in any branch of biology or equivalent degree with minimum 55% marks or equivalent GPA score
Research in our lab deals with multiple research questions pertaining to speciation, diversification, biogeography and community assembly in the Asian tropical forests using molecular phylogenetic comparative methods.
More details on the past and ongoing research are here.
The Western Ghats (WG) of peninsular India, a global biodiversity hotspot,
has experienced complex geological and climatic history. It also has a climatically and topographically complex landscape. Thus, we studied the influence of ecological and geological factors in shaping the diversity and distribution of its biota using ancient centipedes as a model system. We showed that both geological processes (e.g., Deccan Volcanism) and climatic gradients (precipitation and temperature) influenced the biogeography and diversification patterns. Among these Scolopendrid centipedes, there were ancient species-pairs which are morphologically cryptic. Interestingly, cryptic species-pairs occupied distinct climatic niches either in sympatry or allopatry, indicating that natural selection may not be on external morphology. Given that centipedes are venomous arthropods, the logical next step is to examine the role of venom composition, venom gland morphology, and diet in speciation in centipedes. Therefore, we aim to test the ecological speciation hypothesis among multiple closely related species of Scolopendridae.

Job description: Research work will involve field and lab work. In the field, researcher will help in sampling for soil arthropods, associated climatic variables, and geographic distribution data. The lab work will involve, light microscopy, and gut dissection, DNA extraction, PCRs, library prep, and sequence generation via Sanger and next-generation sequencing methods.

Desirable qualification: A strong motivation for research in Evolutionary Biology is essential. Experience in such molecular ecological techniques and fieldwork will be strongly preferred, but is not mandatory. Strong work ethics and ability to work well alone as well as collaborating as part of a group would be necessary.

Post II

Post Code/ No. of Positions/ Area: 030224A – 1 Position – Ecology and Evolutionary biology

Project Code/ Title & Duration: GDA00018 Insights from a phylogenetic framework: Examining the role of evolutionary processes in shaping the richness, assembly, and diversification patterns of woody plants in the Western Ghats, India

Essential Qualification:

Master’s degree in any branch of biology or equivalent degree from a recognized University.

Masters in any branch of biology or equivalent degree with minimum 55% marks or equivalent GPA score.

Project Overview:

The examination of rainforest assembly from a biogeographic perspective remains limited, especially in the wet tropics of South Asia. Here, we propose to examine the roles of geoclimatic and biogeographic processes in the diversification of woody plants in an ancient mountain system. The Western Ghats (WG) is considered to be one of the oldest regions of differentiation of flora and fauna in Asia and is also a global biodiversity hotspot. While there have been several taxonomic studies, the use of an integrative phylogenetic framework to infer diversification patterns and processes is still in its nascent stage for the WG biota, especially for woody plants. This study aims to work on this gap by creating robust species-level phylogenies for select clades with high endemism to understand the biogeography and diversification trends and their drivers in the WG. Time-calibrated species-level molecular phylogenetic trees and distribution data will be used with historical biogeography and diversification analyses to infer diversification patterns and associated processes for the select clades. This will be one of the few studies from the region to study the evolution of woody plants at a large geographic scale (the entire extent of the WG, spanning ~1600 km from 8°N–21°N) with nearly complete taxonomic sampling using phylogenetic comparative methods. The results from this study will shed light on how past processes have shaped the extant diversity in this biodiversity hotspot. Furthermore, our results will demonstrate the roles that mountains play in both the persistence of lineages and as an engine for diversity.

Project Status:

The project is currently in its 4th year, and the primary data collection is mostly done, with lab work currently underway. Additional details regarding the lab and the work done are available here and here.

Job Description:

The work will primarily involve extensive lab work entailing DNA extraction, running PCRs, purifications for Sanger sequencing, and library preparation for NGS sequencing. In addition to the lab component, there is a field component (optional) and desk-based work entailing the compilation of data from online flora and other sources. The applicants are also expected to go through literature regarding the project during their tenure.

Desirable Qualifications:

A strong motivation for research in evolutionary biology is essential. Prior experience in fieldwork or molecular ecological techniques is mandatory and will be strongly preferred. Strong work ethics and ability to work well alone as well as collaborating as part of a group would be necessary. Prior experience in fieldwork and analytical skills in R and statistics are preferred but not mandatory.
