Recruitment for Life sciences candidates at National Institute of Biomedical Genomics, ministry of science & technology

National Institute of Biomedical Genomics (NIBMG) Kalyani is an Institute of Government of India, Ministry of Science & Technology, Department of Biotechnology. The Institute has created the necessary physical infrastructure and critical platform technologies to support research, translation and training in biomedical genomics.

Applications are invited for the position of Project Linked Persons for extramural projects to be executed by the National institute of Biomedical Genomics, Kalyani. Selected applicants will be appointed for a period of 9 Months. The tenure of appointment may be extended depending on performance and availability of funds.

Project Name: Title: Diabetic Retinopathy Microbiome Study-India (DRMS-India)
Principal Investigator’s name: Dr. Souvik Mukherjee
Research Description: Diabetes affects 10% of Indian adults, with diabetic retinopathy (DR) impacting up to 20%, causing irreversible vision loss in 4%. Current DR treatments often have low success rates and lengthy procedures. Recent research in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh highlighted links between gut bacteria and DR in those with diabetes. The DRMS aims to deepen this connection by analyzing stool samples from people with diabetes, diabetes-related retinopathy, and those without health issues. Participants will provide stool and blood samples at no cost. Stool DNA analysis will identify bacteria, while blood tests will assess diabetes levels and related conditions routinely checked in diabetics. This study seeks to shed more light on the role of gut bacteria in DR progression for better understanding and potential treatment advancements.
In this project the wet laboratory work-based applicant will be responsible for hands-on Human samples handling, human and microbial DNA RNA isolation, primer designing, PCR, Real Time PCR, DNA sequencing and other Molecular Biological techniques involving human cell/microbial culture. He/she will also be responsible for project data management on a daily basis.

The data analyst applicant will be responsible for handling high throughput human and microbiome sequence data on a daily basis. He/she will catalogue the changes in bacterial, viral, and fungal composition and its gene families, pathways from human microbiome samples using whole shotgun metagenome sequencing along with highlighting the novel interplay between host and metagenomic correlates in diseased individuals.
Place of Work: National Institute of Biomedical Genomics, P.O.: N.S.S., Kalyani 741251, West Bengal.
