Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Bhopal
Junior Research Fellow at IISER Bhopal
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”.
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 the analysis of G-quadruplex conformations using 2D NMR experiments and may involve data interpreting based on other complimentary tools (such as UV-Vis/Circular Dichroism spectroscopy, molecular dynamics simulations, machine-learning approaches). Details of research pursued in the BioNMR lab at IISER Bhopal can be found here.
Essential Qualifications: BS-MS/M.Sc./MS (or equivalent) in Physics/Chemistry/Physical Chemistry/Biophysical Chemistry/Biochemistry or related disciplines with a good academic record (first class/division or minimum CPI of 7.0/10.0).
