PGIMER Neuroscience SRF/JRF Openings 2017 December | PGIMER Recruits @ helpBIOTECH

Applications are invited for JRF/SRF positions at

Neuroscience research Lab

One of the aims of our laboratory is to unravel the genetic mechanisms mediating cell survival mechanisms, with a focus on retinal degeneration and ALS. Using in vitro, in vivo and human systems , we have uncovered a critical role for leukocytes in the development of ALS and AMD by capturing it in an animal model [Nat Med 9(11) 2003-4, Stem cells Dev, 2011, Nature Scientific Reports, 2014].

We seek to gain mechanistic understanding of these processes through a combination of cellular, pharmacological, alternative and Imaging techniques, aided by a spectrum of supplementary experimental platforms ranging from cell cultures, mice to patients.

Among other goals of the laboratory are developing animal models for stroke, retinal degeneration and memory impairment and searching biomarkers in neurological diseases particularly ALS and AMD.

We have recently shown that the memory enhancer action of Bacopa Monniera may involve GABAergic-Cholinergic axis (Neuroscience, July 2008; Psychopharmacology, Jan 2008 & Behavioral Brain Research, May 2007). The lab follows GLP norms and is extremely well funded from national agencies, richly awarded by Quality Council of India. It provides state of art facilities with Independent power back up, wi-fi enabled online data bases, combined with challenging yet friendly and competitive environment.

We invite young, talented and motivated individuals that fulfill the eligibility criteria and possess good communication skills, computer knowledge and research abilities.

The interested candidates may apply with a copy of CV and a statement of purpose. You are required to send your CV at and appear for an interview on 28.12.17 at 11.00 am in Neuroscience research Lab- 3036, Research Block-B, 3rd Floor, PGIMER-Chandigarh.

Please visit for more information about research activities.

The under privileged candidates are especially encouraged to apply. In service candidates are required to produce No Objection Certificate (NOC) from their employer before appearing for the interview.
