Research Positions in Tomato Functional Genomics 

At the Repository of Tomato Genomics Resources (http://rtgr.webs.com/), we are working on Tomato Functional Genomics involving, Genome Editing, Exome Capture Proteomics, and Metabolomics along with TILLING approaches to manipulate the fruit ripening in tomato. The current aims of the group are to isolate tomato mutants with high lycopene, β-carotene (provitamin A) and folate content in tomato fruits. For recent publications of the group see (Food Chemistry 2017 217:610, Frontiers in Plant Sciences 2016 7:969; PLoS ONE 2016 11(4); Food Chemistry 2015 179: 76-84; Plant Methods 2015 11:5; Plant Cell Environment 2014 37: 1688-1702, Plant Physiology 2014 164: 2030-2044; Plant Physiology 2013 161: 2085–2101). 

Currently we have following post-doctoral positions available in the DBT Centre of Excellence and Innovation in Biotechnology (CEIB): "Program Support on Genome Engineering of Tomato” awarded to Prof RP Sharma, funded by Department of Biotechnology. The qualifications for the positions are as follows: 

Project on “Targeted Genome Editing for Regulating Tomato Fruit Ripening” 

1. Research Associate: (1 position): Applicants should have PhD degree in Plant Sciences or related areas. The essential qualification for this position is the research experience in tissue culture and plant transformation, raising, analyzing and propagating transgenic plants preferably in tomato or other crop plants. The experience should be supported by research publications. 

Selected candidate would be paid Rs. 36,000+30% HRA. 

2. Research Associate: (1 position): Applicants should have PhD degree in plant molecular biology. The essential qualification for this position is the research experience in plant functional genomics for CRISPAR/CAS mutagenesis system with expertise in designing and cloning of gene constructs needed for genome editing. The experience should be supported by research publications. 

Selected candidate would be paid Rs. 36,000+30% HRA.

Project on “Genome wide screen for tomato mutants by TILLING- Phase-II” 

3. Research Associate: – (1 position): 

Applicants should have PhD degree in plant molecular biology. We are looking for a candidate who can handle Next Gen Sequencing and DsDNA analyzer for TILLING. The experience in crossing/backcrossing and maintaining mutant lines is desirable. The experience should be supported by research publications. 

Selected candidate would be paid Rs. 36,000+30% HRA. 

Candidates interested in above project positions should send a one page statement clearly explaining how their skills are relevant to the position along with a copy of their research publications. Applications without enclosed experience certificate will be rejected. 

The candidates should also enclose detailed CV and the name/email id/telephone numbers of three referees. The candidates applying for above positions should clearly write the project title and the name of the position for which they are applying along with position number. The candidates can send their application by email at rameshwar.sharma@uohyd.ac.in on or before March 25th, 2017. All the positions are purely temporary in nature. Shortlisted candidates would be called for interview. 

No TA/DA would be provided for attending the interview. We also accept applications from the candidates who wish to pursue post-doctoral research with their own fellowships from DBT/DST/CSIR/UGC in the area of tomato functional genomics/metabolomics/proteomics. The candidates who wish to be considered for independent fellowship can send CV with a research proposal at above email id.
