Systems Medicine Cluster (SyMeC): Accelerating Systems Medicine using a Cluster Approach Today, medicine is largely reactive. A medical practitioner treats the illness of a person, with varying levels of success. With the rise of genomics and the accumulation of large amounts of data on various diseases, a new systems-based approach to medicine has emerged. Clinical practitioners and researchers are increasingly realising that our bodies do not work as a set of independent components, but rather as an interacting system, with genes, proteins, cells and organs interacting with each other and the environment in complex ways. The understanding of this system will result in a transcendental change in medical practice; from reactive medicine, based on disease, to a predictive and preventive one centered on health. However, to effect this transition, complementary multi-domain expertise and experience are necessary. 

In conformity with the national priority of stimulating investment in biotechnology, a Biocluster has been created. The Biocluster is a platform – both intellectual and logistical – for generating required biological and medical evidence to accelerate systems medicine. The Biocluster comprises six institutions: 
• Bose Institute, 
• CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Biology, 
• Indian Institute of Science Education & Research, 
• Indian Statistical Institute, • National Institute of Biomedical Genomics, 
• Tata Medical Centre; with the National Institute of Biomedical Genomics serving as the coordinating institution. 

We are looking for motivated and bright individuals interested to explore career opportunities in this innovative multi-organization initiative in Systems Medicine in the positions at NIBMG mentioned as below:

International Cancer Genome Consortium – India Project 

The International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC) has been launched to coordinate large-scale cancer genome studies in tumours from 50 different cancer types that are of clinical and societal importance across the globe. The Indian initiative of the ICGC is on gingivo-buccal oral cancer (GBOC). The ICGC Laboratory of the National Institute of Biomedical Genomics is the site of genomic analyses of the initiative, which consists of next generation sequencing, genome wide scan and related activities. We are looking for motivated and bright individuals interested to explore career opportunities in these high throughput cutting edges laboratory technologies in genomics for the technical positions as follows: 

Data Analyst (2) Contractual
