Applications are invited for Junior Research Fellow at INST | M.Pharm, M.Sc

The Institute of Nano Science and Technology, Mohali (INST-Mohali) has been established by the Government of India as a specialized centre of excellence to promote the growth of R&D in, and exploit the application-potential of, Nano Science and Technology in the country. It is envisaged that INST-Mohali will initially focus on R&D in the areas of nanomaterials, nanometrology, nano-bio pharma, nano-medicine and on nano R&D relevant for food and agriculture. It is also expected to focus on basic research, human resource development and transfer of intellectual knowledge in the area of nanotechnology to industry to exploit its application potential. INST-Mohali invites applications / nominations for the post of Director.

Post : Junior Research Fellow

Applications are invited from highly motivated and bright candidates for the position of Junior Research Fellow in the following research project funded by DBT, Government of India, under the supervision of Prof. Deepa Ghosh, Principal Investigator, at Institute of Nano Science and Technology, Mohali.

Title of the Research Project: “Development of advanced third generation matrix associated chondrocytes for cartilage repair"

Essential Qualifications:
1. Masters in Chemistry/Biochemistry/Biophysics /Biotechnology/Pharmacy
2. Qualified any one of the following:
CSIR/UGC National Eligibility test or LS Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) Joint Admission Test (JAM) Graduate Pharmacy Aptitude Test (GPAT) ICMR-JRF/ICAR-AICE/JEST/JGEEBILS

Desirable Experience: Research experience in Organic Synthesis/Synthesis of Nanomaterials is preferable.

Age limit: Must not be over 28 years as on 31st October, 2018 which is relaxed up to 5 years for SC/ ST/ PH/ OBC/Women candidates.

Salary: Rs.25000 + 20% HRA

Project duration: 3 years

Brief details of the work to be undertaken: Development of a novel injectable, hydrogel matrix using bottom-up self-assembly of nanofibers. The gel-sol-gel property of the hydrogel would be further used for cell culture and direct implantation of the cell-hydrogel composite into the damaged cartilage. The work will require synthesis of supramolecular peptide as well as polymer-peptide conjugate hydrogels, assessment of their physical properties including gel-sol-gel formation, stability over long term culture, typical stress-strain behavior, hydrolysis, crosslinking, swelling studies etc. Further biological properties like, biocompatibility, as well as biodegradability of these designed materials will be studied.

Interested candidates are requested to send their applications (for application refer to our website inst.ac.in) along with their CV to deepa.ghosh@inst.ac.in on or before 31st October, 2018. The subject should state “Application for Project JRF”

General Terms and Conditions:
