The Institute for Stem Cell Science and Regenerative Medicine (www.instem.res.in), Bangalore is an autonomous institute of the Department of Biotechnology, Government of India. inStem’s mandate is to establish collaborative research programs involving interdisciplinary teams with translation emphasis as its core. inStem has six major thematic programs at Bangalore, several in close collaborations with clinicians, in areas of brain disorders, cardiac disease, tissue repair following injury and inflammation, cell differentiation and plasticity and chemical approaches aiding discovery. The Institute invites Online Applications from eligible and interested candidates for filling up the following vacancy under Scientific Cadre on Direct Recruitment failing which by Deputation/ Absorption. 

Reader/Assistant Professor/Assistant Investigator (Scientist ‘E’) 

Level-13 1 UR 

ABOUT THE POST: Applications at the level of Scientist E/Assistant Professor are invited for the Brain Development and Disease Mechanisms (BDDM) theme, which seeks to understand the development of the mammalian brain at multiple scales of organization. In particular, we are interested in exploring cell-cell interactions and sub-cellular processes that underpin normal brain development and may result, when altered, in brain diseases. Such processes include membrane organization, translational control, chromatin regulation, RNA mediated mechanisms and related processes. The work within this theme seeks to link these basic biological mechanisms to aspects of human brain diseases including disease susceptibility, disease progression and pharmacogenomics to inform on the development of novel diagnostic and therapeutic options. The theme adopts a multi-disciplinary approach to understand brain function through discovery biology and disease modelling using modern stem cell technology including organoids, human genomics and gene editing technology, imaging and sophisticated physiological analysis. The scientific strategy of the theme links these technologies to clinical cohorts of relevant human brain diseases with associated biorepository resources as well as suitable animal models for in vivo analysis. 

The successful candidate would have a consistent track record of scientific accomplishment (as demonstrated through publications) in areas of cellular and molecular neuroscience including modern genetic analysis of polygenic human diseases. They would be expected to lead an internationally competitive research program within the broad area of brain development and disease mechanisms, mapped to the scientific goals of the BDDM theme. This would include the supervision of Ph.D students, post-doctoral fellows and leveraging external resources to drive forward their research program. The successful candidate will use technical approaches and address scientific questions that add novel dimensions to the BDDM theme effort while also benefitting from the existing skills and resources already assembled in the theme. For full details of the BDDM theme, please visit: (https://www.instem.res.in/bddm/).
