Research Associate

 Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra


Applications are invited from Indian citizens for a Research Associate position in the DBT sponsored project.

The project aims to investigate for the first time the nexus between a membrane channel protein (CLIC1) and a chaperone (Gankyrin) in cancer cell migration and invasion using an integrated approach encompassing tools in biophysics, biochemistry, cell biology, chemical biology, synthetic chemistry, structure-based inhibitor design, small molecule screening and computational methods for development of peptide or small molecule-based CLIC1 inhibitors for therapy.

In this multidisciplinary and multi institutional project the selected candidate will be responsible for understanding the transcriptomic and proteomic changes responsible for cancer cell migration driven by protein-protein interactions involving CLIC1 and Gankyrin.


Initially for 6 months. Depending on satisfactory performance the position will be extended for another two and half years.


Salary will be between Research Associate I — Research Associate II


ACTREC is looking for motivated and enthusiastic PhD degree holders in life science and allied subjects with expertise in mammalian cell culture, protein chemistry, molecular biology and cell biology techniques including skills required for characterizing protein interactions such as immunoprecipitation..
