SNU Computational Biology JRF Vacancy 2017 August


Department of Mathematics School of Natural Sciences 
Shiv Nadar University 

Applications invited for JRF in Mathematical and Computational Biology DST-Funded Project 

Applications are invited for one post of Junior Research Fellow in a DST funded project entitled "Gametheoretic Approach of Modelling Antibiotic Drug Resistance as Self-Reinforcing Process by Social Factors and Economic Growth" under the supervision of Dr. Samit Bhattacharyya, Department of Mathematics, School of Natural Sciences, Shiv Nadar University, UP 201314. 

Essential & Desirable Qualification The applicant must have Post Graduate Degree in Mathematics/Applied Mathematics or Computer Science with NET qualification from a recognized University. 

Knowledge in Mathematical modelling/ Dynamical systems theory/and Game theory should be excellent. Basic programming skills in C/MATLAB/R is required and experience in working on Unix/Linux OS is preferred. 

Fellowship As per DST norms, fellowship is ₹ 25,000/- p.m. plus HRA as permissible for first two years. There will be enhanced fellowship in the third year as ₹ 28,000/- p.m. plus HRA. Duration One year (extendable up to 2.5 years based on performance and availability of funds). Note that the post is purely temporary in nature. 

Project Rationale The project will focus on modelling Antibiotic Drug resistance. Antibiotic drug resistance is a global issue. The challenges associated with controlling drug resistance, particularly in Indian context, are many and multifaceted. Along with extensive use of antibiotics in hospitals and farming, several socio-economic factors also promote antibiotic use (misuse) in community. Here in this project, we take modelling approach to understand how socioeconomic factors promote emergence and persistence of drugresistance in community. 

Nature of Study We will use Mathematical and Stochastic modelling technique, and computer simulations to understand the dynamics at different level of the system. 

Applications with complete bio-data (with details of qualification i.e. examination passed, year, division, percentage of marks 12th board onwards, and photocopies of mark sheets/testimonials/certificates) should be sent by email to: lakshmi.arya@snu.edu.in. An informal query of details of the project may be asked to PI Dr. Samit Bhattacharyya (samit.b@snu.edu.in). 

Last date for applying JRF in Mathematical and Computational Biology is August 11, 2017
