SASTRA Computational Biology JRF Vacancy

JRF Position in Computational Biology 

Project Title Investigating the effect of Osmolytes on the Interplay of Dynamics of Water, protein and DNA: Implications for Modulating Protein-DNA Specificity 

Funding Agency Department of Biotechnology, Government of India 

Duration of Project 2018 – 2021 

Fellowship NET/GATE qualified or M. Tech. INR 25000/month M. Sc. : INR 18000/month 

Essential qualification First class in M. Sc. or M. Tech. (Biophysics, Bioinformatics, Biotechnology, Physics, or related fields) 

Project Description Engineering the specificity in protein-DNA interactions has immense therapeutic potential. However, a rational guideline to engineering specificity has been elusive till-date primarily because of the lack of fundamental understanding of the interplay between various factors contributing to protein-DNA interactions. This project aims at understanding the interplay of water and protein dynamics towards specificity in protein-DNA interactions. The project will employ computational methods (molecular dynamics simulations) to address the research question. 

Interested candidates may send their latest resume by email to Dr. Vigneshwar Ramakrishnan ( on or before 31 July, 2018. 

Date of interview will be notified by email later. No TA/DA will be paid for appearing in the interview.
