Indian Institute of Technology Indore located in Madhya Pradesh, known as IIT Indore or IITI, is an institute of national importance established by the Government of India in 2009. It is one of the eight new IITs, started by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India. The institution started functioning from 2009-10 in a temporary campus at Institute of Engineering and Technology of Devi Ahilyabai University under mentorship of IIT Bombay. Shri Arjun Singh, the Union HRD minister, laid the foundation of the permanent campus, spread over an area of around 501.42-acre , on 17th February 2009 at Simrol, a location on Khandwa Road about 25 km from the city of Indore.
Post : Postdoctoral Position under DST Funded project
Applications are invited from motivated and eligible candidates for a postdoctoral position (RA) in the DST funded (under National Supercomputing Mission) research project titled “Redesigning of antibody and finding novel inhibitors for dengue virus using computational approaches”.
Brief description of the project : The objective of the project is to conduct a comprehensive analysis of the envelope protein of all four dengue serotypes, identification of its conserved region, and to study the binding mechanism of bnAbs developed against that conserved region using molecular modeling and molecular dynamics simulations. Further, we aim to investigate how we could improve the binding of bnAbs, computer aided drug discovery, the role of glycosylation sites in binding, and the molecular-level insight into trimer E/prM membrane system via all-atom MD simulations.
Eligibility : Ph.D. (awarded or thesis submitted) in Computational Biology/Computational Chemistry/Bioinformatics/Biophysics/Biotechnology/Physics/Pharmacy or in equivalent streams with good publications in international journals. Candidates with research experience in molecular dynamics simulations of biomolecules (proven by publications) using AMBER/CHARMM/GROMACS/LAMMPS are preferred.
Age Limit : 35 Years with relaxation to SC/ST/OBC/Physically Handicapped/Women candidates as per Government of India norms.
Stipend : Consolidated Emoluments per month: Rs. 47,000/- House Rent Allowance (HRA) : All Postdoctoral Fellow may be provided accommodation based on availability and those residing in accommodation provided by the institute will not be eligible for drawing HRA. Wherever provision of hostel accommodation is not possible, HRA may be allowed to Postdoctoral Fellow as per Government norms applicable in the city/location where they are working.
Duration : Initially for one year, extendable for further period subject to satisfactory performance of the incumbent and continuation of the project.
How to Apply : Interested candidates are requested to submit a detailed CV to Dr. Parimal Kar (PI) via e-mail: email@example.com by April 25, 2021. Only shortlisted candidates will be intimated by email for an interview. No TA/DA will be paid for appearing in the interview.
