Career for M.Pharm, M.Sc in research at Institute of Nano Science and Technology



The Institute of Nano Science and Technology, Mohali (INST-Mohali) has been established by the Government of India as a specialized centre of excellence to promote the growth of R&D in, and exploit the application-potential of, Nano Science and Technology in the country. It is envisaged that INST-Mohali will initially focus on R&D in the areas of nanomaterials, nanometrology, nano-bio pharma, nano-medicine and on nano R&D relevant for food and agriculture.

Post : Junior Research Fellow

Title of the Research Project: “Development of advanced third generation matrix associated chondrocytes for cartilage repair"

Essential Qualifications:
1. Masters in Chemistry/Biochemistry/Biophysics /Biotechnology/Pharmacy
2. Qualified any one of the following: CSIR/UGC National Eligibility test or LS Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) Joint Admission Test (JAM) Graduate Pharmacy Aptitude Test (GPAT) ICMR-JRF/ICAR-AICE/JEST/JGEEBILS

Desirable Experience: Research experience in Organic Synthesis / Synthesis of Nanomaterials is preferable.

Age limit: Must not be over 28 years as on 23rd April, 2019 which is relaxable as per Government of India norms for SC/ ST/ PH/ OBC/Women candidates.

Salary: Rs.25000 + 20% HRA (Pre-revised)

Duration: One years

Brief details of the work to be undertaken: Development of a novel injectable, hydrogel matrix using bottom-up self-assembly of nanofibers. The gel-sol-gel property of the hydrogel would be further used for cell culture and direct implantation of the cell-hydrogel composite into the damaged cartilage. The work will require synthesis of supramolecular peptide as well as polymer-peptide conjugate hydrogels, assessment of their physical properties including gel-sol-gel formation, stability over long term culture, typical stress-strain behavior, hydrolysis, crosslinking, swelling studies etc. Further biological properties like, biocompatibility, as well as biodegradability of these designed materials will be studied.

General Terms and Conditions:
The position is purely temporary and on contractual basis, initially for one year renewable each year subject to satisfactory performance for a maximum of two years or till the end of the project. The position is co-terminus with the project.
Candidate selected for this position can also apply for the regular PhD program of INST provided they satisfy eligibility criteria. A hard copy of the application form along with attested photocopies of age proof, certificates, degrees and mark sheets should be presented at the time of the interview.

Date of interview & Reporting Time: 10:00AM on 23rd April, 2019 at INST Mohali.

Note: candidates residing beyond 500 km from Mohali may appear through Skype for the interview.
