Molecular Dynamics Stimulations | SASTRA JRF Opening

JRF Position on Bioinformatics - Molecular Dynamics Stimulations

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 

Fellowship As per rules and regulations 

Essential qualification First class in M. Sc. or M. Tech. (Biophysics, Bioinformatics, Biotechnology, Physics, or related fields) 
Project Description Specificity in the binding of proteins to DNA is important for the tight regulation of various cellular processes including replication, transcription etc. Loss of protein-DNA specificity has adverse ramifications including uncontrolled cell proliferation (cancer) etc. Osmolytes are commonly known to be expressed under stress conditions. This project aims to delineate the effect of osmolytes on protein-DNA specificity using computational methods (molecular dynamics simulations). 

Interested candidates may send their latest resume by email to Dr. Vigneshwar Ramakrishnan (vignesh@scbt.sastra.edu) on or before 17 April 2019

Shortlisted candidates will have to appear for a test and interview. The date of the test and interview will be notified by email only to the shortlisted candidates. No TA/DA will be paid for appearing in the interview
