INSTITUTE OF NANO SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
Junior Research Fellow under “DBT” Project
Walk-in-Interview will be conducted on 23rd April, 2019 for highly motivated and bright candidates for the position of Junior Research Fellow in the following research project funded by DBT, Government of India, under the supervision of Prof. Deepa Ghosh, Principal Investigator, at Institute of Nano Science and Technology, Mohali.
Title of the Research Project:“Development of advanced third generation matrix associated chondrocytes for cartilage repair”
Name of the position available: Junior Research Fellow (JRF)
Number of positions available: One
1) Masters in Chemistry/Biochemistry/Biophysics /Biotechnology/Pharmacy
2) Qualified any one of the following:
- CSIR/UGC National Eligibility test or LS
- Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE)
- Joint Admission Test (JAM)
- Graduate Pharmacy Aptitude Test (GPAT)
Desirable Experience: Research experience in Organic Synthesis/Synthesis of Nanomaterials is preferable.
Age limit: Must not be over 28 years as on 23rd April, 2019 which is relaxable as per Government of India norms for SC/ ST/ PH/ OBC/Women candidates.
Salary: Rs.25000 + 20% HRA (Pre-revised)
Duration: One years
Brief details of the work to be undertaken:
Development of a novel injectable, hydrogel matrix using bottom-up self-assembly of nanofibers. The gel-sol-gel property of the hydrogel would be further used for cell culture and direct implantation of the cell-hydrogel composite into the damaged cartilage. The work will require synthesis of supramolecular peptide as well as polymer-peptide conjugate hydrogels, assessment of their physical properties including gel-sol-gel formation, stability over long term culture, typical stress-strain behavior, hydrolysis, crosslinking, swelling studies etc. Further biological properties like, biocompatibility, as well as biodegradability of these designed materials will be studied..
General Terms and Conditions:
The position is purely temporary and on contractual basis, initially for one year renewable each year subject to satisfactory performance for a maximum of two years or till the end of the project. The position is co-terminus with the project. Candidate selected for this position can also apply for the regular PhD program of INST provided they satisfy eligibility criteria.
A hard copy of the application form along with attested photocopies of age proof, certificates, degrees and mark sheets should be presented at the time of the interview.
Date of interview & Reporting Time: 10:00AM on 23rd April, 2019 at INST Mohali.
Note: candidates residing beyond 500 km from Mohali may appear through Skype for the interview.
