Walk in interview in R&D for M.Pharm/B.Pharm in NABI - Government of India

 

National Agri-Food Biotechnology Institute (NABI), Mohali, is an autonomous R&D Institute under Department of Biotechnology, Government of India. The institute is establishing a state of art facility in the area of genomics (ABI 3730xl, RT-PCR, DNA analyzer, bioanalyzer, liquid handling system, automated DNA extraction system, LCM, Mass-Array (sequenom), etc), proteomics (MALDI-TOF-TOF, Q-TOF, nano-LC, HPLC, GCMS-MS, HP-TLC, UPLC, etc.), high performance computing facility, and food science (NIR, FTIR, SEM, etc.).The institute carries out cutting edge research at the interface of agricultural biotechnology, bioinformatics, food processing, and nutritional sciences.

Applications are invited for the position of Junior Research Fellow (JRF) under the DBT sponsored research project in the Agricultural Biotechnology research program at NABI.

Post: Junior Research Fellow - 01

Title: A genomics  assisted  synthetic  hexaploid  wheat  gene  isolation  and  pre - breeding platform for improvement of heat tolerance and sustainable production.

Principle Investigator: Dr. Monika Garg

Sponsoring agency: Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Government of India.

Duration: The appointment will be for 2 years or till the termination of the project, whichever is earlier, and subject to annual review for further extension that will be granted based on the research progress and accomplishments.

Objectives:
This project combines the generation of SHW-derived germplasm with genomics-assisted and statistical genetic approaches to establish an integrated platform for trait improvement, gene discovery and pre-breeding. This will be exploited within the project timeframe to identify novel genetic and transcriptional variation controlling heat-stress resistance for deployment within Indian and UK pre-breeding programs. The positioning of project outputs and partners at the interface between wheat genetic research and breeding in India and the UK will be leveraged to aid rapid translation of the pre-breeding resources generated into the breeding sector.
To fulfill these objectives, controlled heat stress assay, cell membrane stability (CMS), the effect of heat on grain size, seed protein and starch deposition will be studied. Fractionation, quantification and differential expression studies of different proteins affected by heat stress will be carried out for marker development and its utilization for screening of generated double haploid population. Studies on starch granule distribution, accumulation pattern and amylose: amylopectin ratio in response to controlled environmental stress will be studied at NABI.

Qualifications
Essential: 
Post Graduate Degree in basic science (M.Sc.) with NET qualification
Or Graduate degree in professional course with NET qualification
Or Post Graduate degree in professional course

Professional course: Degrees in engineering/technology, medicine, pharma, veterinary and agriculture

NET: CSIR-UGC NET, MHRD-GATE, DBT-NET, DAE-JEST & JGEEBILS, NBHM, ICMR-JEE, ICAR test for Ph.D, DoP-GPAT

Desirable:
1. NET-
2. Prior research or training experience in Agricultural biotechnology, 2D-PAGE and mass spectroscopy.
3. Skills and knowledge of plant molecular biology.

Age: 28 years (5 years’ relaxation for Female/SC/ST/Physically Handicapped Candidate and 3 years for OBC Candidate)

Emoluments: Rs. 25,000/- per month plus 20% HRA as per guidelines and service conditions as notified by DST OM No.SR/S9/Z-09/2012 dated 21.10.2014. CSIR-LS will get 12000/- + HRA, as for now, but if DST/DBT revises the fellowship candidate will receive revised fellowship.
