Research Positions in Tomato Functional Genomics 

At the Repository of Tomato Genomics Resources (http://uohyd.ac.in/images/index.html), (DBT Centre of Excellence and Innovation in Biotechnology (CEIB): "Program Support on Genome Engineering of Tomato”) we are working on Tomato Functional Genomics involving Genome Editing, Exome Capture, Proteomics, and Metabolomics along with TILLING approaches to manipulate the fruit ripening in tomato. The current aims of the group are to isolate tomato mutants with high lycopene, β-carotene (provitamin A), folate content and long shelf life of fruits. For recent publications of the group see (Food Chemistry 2018 259: 234-244; Journal of Experimental Botany 2017 68: 4803–4819, The Plant Journal 2017 DOI: 10.1111/tpj.13654, PLoS ONE 2017 12(5):e0176978, Food Chemistry 2017 217:610, Frontiers in Plant Sciences 2016 7:969; PLoS ONE 2016 11(4); Food Chemistry 2015 179: 76-84; Plant Methods 2015 11:5; Plant Cell Environment 2014 37: 1688- 1702, Plant Physiology 2014 164: 2030-2044; Plant Physiology 2013 161: 2085–2101). 

Currently, we have following positions available in the projects “Influence of phototropin genes on tomato fruit quality and shelf life” and “Manipulation of light signaling components for improvement of tomato fruit quality” awarded to Dr. Y. Sreelakshmi, funded by Department of Biotechnology. The qualifications for the positions are as follows: 

1. Research Associate-I - 1 position: Applicants should have very good experience in proteomics, preferably using plant tissues in examining posttranslational modifications, quantitative proteomics using shotgun approaches, basic knowledge of mass spectrometry and should be supported by publications. Selected candidate would be paid Rs. 36,000+30% HRA. The candidates meeting the above specifications and who have submitted PhD Thesis and have research publications are also encouraged to apply. Or 

Applicants should have very good experience in gene cloning and functional genomics approaches- gene silencing, genome editing using CRISPR/CAS, yeast two hybrid-BiFC analyses and CHIP preferably in tomato or other crop plants and should be supported by publications. Selected candidate would be paid Rs. 36,000+30% HRA. The candidates meeting the above specifications and who have submitted PhD Thesis and have research publications are also encouraged to apply. 

2. Junior research fellow- 1 position: Applicants should have M.Sc. in any branch of Life Sciences plus 1-2 years research experience in proteomics analyses-2Dgel/LC-MS or M.Tech (Pharmacy-Analytical techniques) with GATE/GATE equivalent with experience in mass spectrometry. Candidates with M.Sc. should be qualified in NET-LS/BET. Selected candidate would be paid Rs. 25,000+30% HRA. 

We also accept applications from the candidates who wish to pursue post-doctoral research with their own fellowships from DBT/DST/CSIR/UGC in the area of tomato functional genomics/metabolomics/proteomics. The candidates who wish to be considered for independent fellowship can send CV with a research proposal at the email id given below. Candidates interested in above project positions should send a one-page statement clearly explaining how their skills are relevant to the position. The candidates should also enclose detailed CV and the name/email id for three referees. The candidates can send their application by email at y.sreelakshmi@uohyd.ac.in on or before January 5 th, 2019. All the positions are purely temporary in nature. Shortlisted candidates would be called for interview. No TA/DA would be provided for attending the interview.
