National Agri-Food Biotechnology Institute (NABI) is an autonomous Institute under Department of Biotechnology, Government of India. NABI aims at catalysing the transformation of Agri-food sector in India by being a nodal organization for knowledge generation and translational science leading to value-added products based on Agri-Food biotech innovations for improved household nutritional security. Since its inception in 2010, NABI is involved in research activities for the Bio fortification, development of designer crops for improved nutrition, providing sustainable and novel solutions towards quality food and nutrition, and development of evidence based functional foods to counter malnutrition. Food and nutritional Biotechnology division at NABI requires following research personnel purely on temporary basis. 

1. Name of project: "High resolution QTL mapping from iron(Fe), zinc(Zn), grain protein, and phytate content and their introgression in high yielding wheat cultivators” Name of Principal Investigator:- Dr. Joy K. Roy, Scientist-F National Agri-Food Biotechnology Institute (Mohali) 

Research Positions (Temporary):- Research Associate (RA-I)

Duration:- Till 17 March, 2022 

Project Summary:- This is a NABI’s flagship program, which is funded by Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Ministry of Science & Technology, Government of India. The network project “Development of Bio-fortified and Protein-rich Wheat” will be executed in collaboration among seven networkpartners. The project will include i) evaluation of wheat germplasms for Fe, Zn, folate, and grain protein content, starch quality and antinutritional factors, ii) Validation and characterization of available genes/QTLs/markers for micronutrients, iii) Development of mapping populations (F2, RILs, NILs, BCs) for genetic analysis, iv) Development of high density linkage maps and QTL maps using high thoughput SNPs, v) Epistatics interactions (QTLxQTL, QTL x environment) analysis, and vi) development of wheat varieties with enhanced micronutrient content and enhanced bioavailability and bioaccessibility. 

Essential qualification:- PhD/ MD/MS/MDS or equivalent degree or having three years of research, teaching and design and development experience after MVSc/M.Pharma/ME/M.Tech with at least one research paper in Science Citation Index (SCI) Journal. 

Desired Experience:- Experience in plant or agricultural biotechnology, classical breeding & molecular breeding, marker (SSR & SNP) development, QTL mapping, association mapping, gene introgression, genomics and functional genomics tools such as NGS data analysis and gene expression analysis. 

Emoluments:- 47,000/- + 16%HRA 

Responsibilities:- Experience candidates are required for RA positions for Gene introgression and development of pre-breeding materials for QTL mapping for high iron, zinc, low phyate and grain protein content; SNP identification, linkage and association analysis; Bioinformatics and biostatical analysis of sequence data and phenotypic data in wheat; etc. Age40 years for RA (Relaxation is admissible in case of SC/ST/OBC/PD as per GOI instructions
