Ph.D. student positions at YU-IOB Center for Systems Biology and Molecular Medicine
The YU-IOB Center for Systems Biology and Molecular Medicine (CSBMM) is established at Yenepoya University, Mangalore, to bring together the teams of biologists and clinicians using advanced OMICs platforms to investigate molecular underpinnings of complex life conditions including growth, metabolism, human diseases, host-pathogen interactions, response to therapy and healing, molecular targets of drugs including traditional medicines and drug resistance. The dynamic team composed of mass spectrometrists, molecular biologists, data curators, programmers and clinicians work within the frameworks of ‘molecularizing’ various aspects of biology.
We are looking for highly motivated individuals to join our team as Research Fellows, who can further carry on enrolling in Ph.D. programs at Yenepoya University. Each Research Fellow will have opportunities to carry out several research projects in diverse fields of biology including but not restricted to infectious diseases, inherited diseases, cancer, phyto-therapeutics, big data analysis, data integration and biological databases. The Ph.D. fellows will utilize cutting edge technologies to decode the molecular mechanisms, signaling pathways and metabolic pathways. Research will be conducted using multidisciplinary approach employing high-throughput genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and molecular biology tools to maximize discovery, always with intent to translation. We seek highly exceptional candidates with a master’s degree in any field of life sciences or chemistry with zeal and enthusiasm to dissect the molecular underpinnings of biological dynamics.
Selected JRFs and SRFs will be extensively trained in sample prep and data analysis of proteomic and multi PTM experiments on infectious diseases including tuberculosis and malaria, high-resolution mass spectrometry, maintenance of HPLC and a number of molecular biology techniques. Interested candidates need to send their detailed CV by email to: email@example.com with a subject line either as “JRF in Proteogenomics” or “SRF in proteogenomics.” Shortlisted candidates will be contacted within 15 days from date of application.
Selected JRFs will be extensively trained in the handling of high-resolution mass spectrometers including Orbitrap Tribrid Fusion mass spectrometer for discovery of biomarkers or therapeutic targets and QTRAP 6500 mass spectrometer for targeted proteomic analysis. Interested candidates need to send their detailed CV by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject line either as “JRF in proteomics and mass-spectrometry.” Shortlisted candidates will be contacted within 15 days from date of application.
