Post : JRF/SRF-BIO
Recalcitrant chronic wound (diabetic foot, venous, arterial, neurotrophic and pressure ulcer) are a growing public health concern. With the expanding elderly population and increasing incidence of diabetes, localized management of these wounds is becoming a multi-billion-dollar enterprise. Current treatments options and management of the chronic wound has limited success, required longer in-patient care, and often expensive and beyond the limit of the majority of the population in India.
Our laboratory (eNARM Lab, PI: Jyotsnendu Giri) at IIT Hyderabad (with collaboration with hospital) leading by highly energetic interdisciplinary peoples, is working at the interface between materials and biology to develop next-generation approaches for cancer chronic wound healing. We are seeking talented, motivated and passionate individuals (2 no) to join in our efforts for cutting-age research on “Novel biomaterials for chronic wound healing”. The candidate will get highly interdisciplinary work environment to perform cutting age research. The candidate will closely work with collaborators from Hospital in Hyderabad.
Essential Qualification: M.V. Sc, M.Tech, M.S, M.Sc. in Life sciences / Zoology / Biotechnology / Pharmacy / Material Science / Biomedical Egg / Nanotechnology / Biochemistry with minimum 60 % mark from reputed institutes with relevant experience (2-3 years).
• Experience on small animal handling (in vivo study), basic laboratory techniques related to molecular biological, tissue engineering
• Experience on in vivo study using small animal, cells and tissue culture
• Experience related to wound healing project preferable (though optional)
• Eager to learn new interdisciplinary research and technique related to the research.
