Applications are invited for Research Associate, Junior Research Fellow at NIMHANS

National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences is a multidisciplinary Institute for patient care and academic pursuit in the frontier area of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences. The Lunatic Asylum which came into being in the latter part of the 19th Century was renamed as Mental Hospital in 1925 by the erstwhile Government of Mysore. This hospital and All India Institute of Mental Health established in 1954 by Government of India were amalgamated on 27th December 1974, and thus was formed the autonomous National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS). The priority gradiant adopted at the Institute is service, manpower development and research.

Applications are invited from eligible candidates, for the posts of “Research Associate” (RA) and “Junior Research Fellow” (JRF) on contract basis for the DBT funded project entitled “Assessment of extracellular alpha-synuclein on midbrain astrocytes – implications in the pathophysiology of Parkinson’s disease” – under the guidance of Dr. Indrani Datta, Assistant Professor, Department of Biophysics & Principal Investigator, NIMHANS
