Job Id: 123
Project Title: “Exploring the Applications of Chemical Space Networks in Molecular Library Design and Drug Design”
This project aims at the exploration of chemical space from a network-centric perspective. We propose to investigate molecular similarity networks using different families of molecular descriptors and similarity measures. The application of various network measures to the design of diversity-oriented molecular libraries is a major goal of this project.
Job Title: Post-Doctoral Research Associate
Eligibility: Ph.D. Chemistry from a UGC recognized University with strong computational and programming skills and competence in Python, Java, R or C/C++
- Network theory (essential) and Game theory (desirable)
- OR a proven record of publications in cheminformatics or bioinformatics
- Candidates should be NET JRF qualified.
- Candidate without such qualifications may be hired at a salary based on experience.
- Comparison of molecular networks constructed from the whole molecule and fragment-based, 2-D and 3-D similarity measures;
- Exploration of protein binding site similarity networks for predicting cross-reactivity of drugs;
- Comparison of network measures for molecular interaction, transformation and similarity networks.
Nature of work:
electronic structure computations; cheminformatics / statistical analysis; coding / scripting in Python, Java, R, C/C++ ; graphical / network analysis. The candidates will work in an inter-disciplinary project, and will be required to interact with faculty, students and researchers across the Departments of Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics and the Center for Informatics.
Fellowship: As per DST norms, fellowship for RA is ₹ 36,000-40,000/- p.m. based on experience.
