Research jobs for Ph.D, M.Sc at Institute of Advanced Study in Science and Technology
The Institute of Advanced Study in Science and Technology (IASST) is an autonomous R & D institute under the Department of Science and Technology (DST), GOI engaged in multidisciplinary research on basic science and technology development. IASST has a research group focused on understanding the role of various ethnicity factors on human gut microbiome and health. One of the mandates of IASST is to enhance livelihood of the ST/SC communities of the north-east through scientific interventions.
DST has sanctioned a proposal for expanding our ongoing activities under ‘ST/SC community development programme in IASST’ with 2 components, Component I: ‘Heritage food and beverage research’ and Component II: ‘Lab experience based science education for SC & ST Students’. The project proposes (i) to understand the traditional dietary components of the ethnic communities (ST/SC) on human microbiome and health, (ii) optimization of production process of potential ethnic food for promotion as functional food, (iv) involve ST/SC communities in the production and marketing of such functional food to enhance their income and (v) enhancing scientific temperament in the community. The sanctioned project is initially for 3 years and successful implementation of the project will generate revenues for sustaining and development of a dedicated research programme at IASST in future. IASST aims to engage a highly motivated research team to achieve the goal.
