Job for Research Associate, Senior Research Fellow at NIASM
ICAR - NIASM, an unique institute of Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), was established in 2009 at Malegaon Khurd, Baramati. The institute aims at exploring the avenues for management of abiotic stresses affecting the very sustainability of national food production systems. It specifically addresses the aberration induced stresses due to atmospheric, water and edaphic factors, which are estimated to cause 50 per cent losses in crop productivity. Since these stresses are predicted to amplify due to climate change and land degradation, the primary task for the institute is to evolve alleviation techniques through advances in frontier science research. The institute is being structured to enhance capacity of scientists and policy makers mainly by imparting knowledge and by providing the state-of-art facilities for multidisciplinary and multi-commodity research.
Under NICRA project entitled “Phenotyping of pulses for enhanced tolerance to drought, heat and salinity”
Essential Qualification : Ph.D. in Plant Physiology/ Genetics and Plant breeding/ Bioscience with specialisation in plant abiotic stress physiology. Only those with experience in research on drought/heat tolerance in plants as supported by published research papers and those with experience in plant phenotyping in controlled environment /experimental field should apply for this position.
Desirable Qualification : Published research papers relevant to abiotic stress tolerance in crop plants. Knowledge of experimental techniques for plant abiotic stress physiology and statistical analysis and documentation of experimental data. Knowledge of computer operated greenhouse and its maintenance. Experience and willingness to work in field.
Emoluments (per month) : Rs. 40,000/ per month + 10% HRA
