IISERB BSc/MSc Chemistry Recruitment – Applications Invited

Applications are invited from Indian nationals for a post of “Junior Research Fellow” in the
Science and Engineer Research Board sponsored project “Mapping molecular determinants
of G-quadruplex folding using high-resolution NMR spectroscopy”.

Job Title: Junior Research Fellow

Project description:

This project involves biophysical characterization of DNA G-quadruplexes using solution-state NMR spectroscopy. The basic focus would be to chart the molecular determinants of biomolecular folding. The project would involve analysis of G-quadruplex conformations using 2D NMR experiments and may involve data interpreting based on other complimentary tools (such as UVVis/Circular Dichroism spectroscopy, molecular dynamics simulations, machine-learning approaches). Details of research pursued in the BioNMR lab at IISER Bhopal can be found here (https://bionmr.wordpress.com)

Essential Qualifications:

BS-MS/M.Sc./MS (or equivalent) in Physics/Chemistry/Physical Chemistry/Biophysical
Chemistry/Biochemistry or related disciplines with good academic record (first class/division or minimum CPI of 7.0/10.0). Candidate must have qualified a National Eligibility Test (UGC, CSIR, GATE, etc.) with a valid rank/score at the time of applying for this post. Students from national institutes (e.g., IISERs/IITs/NITs/IISc) with above 8.0/10.0 CPI are eligible without NET qualification.

Salary: Rs. 31,000 p.m. + HRA (16%)

Duration: 6 months and renewable based on satisfactory performance.

Desirable Qualifications:

• Experience/knowledge in NMR spectroscopy, biophysical methods, and computer skills
