Application are invited from eligible candidates for Research Assistant position in DST funded project entitled “Unraveling the potential role of Inhibitor of Apoptotic Proteins (IAP) in innate and adaptive immunity against Chlamydia pneumoniae pulmonary infection model system” for the period of one year with possibility of extension until the end of project until March, 2018. The position is purely temporary in nature. The selected candidate will get chance to extend the study toward Ph.D.
Fellowship amount: Rs 10000 plus 30% HRA per month
Project background: The project is dealing with the perturbation of host Apoptotic pathways during chronic lung infection with Intracellular pathogens like Chlamydia pneumonia which inhibit host cell apoptosis for their survival in host.
We are unraveling the role of various inhibitors of apoptosis proteins in both innate and adaptive immune response of macrophages and T cell respectively. In project we are using several immunological and molecular approaches (siRNA Knockdown method e.g. ) in the infected macrophages and epithelium and their co culture model system.
We would employ non-invasive in tracheal infection method in animal model system in our recently established BSL2/3 lab setup For the detailed information about the project kindly refer to (Prakash et al, 2009 PloS ONE, Prakash et al, 2010 JBC).
Educational qualification: You should have completed M.Sc in Life Sciences / Biotechnology discipline from recognized institution and should have got experience in mammalian cell culture. The M.Tech candidate will be given preference. The most eligible candidate would have an additional expertise of handling and conducting experiments with animals which is indispensible requirement of the project.
Interested candidates having mentioned qualification and with good academic records should send their CV including their career vision, name of three references.
The candidates can send their application / informal inquires by email at email@example.com
Application deadline: 15. 09.2016
Only shortlisted candidates would be intimated for the interview at School of life sciences, University of Hyderabad campus. No TA/DA would be provided for attending the interviews.
