Applications are invited from Indian nationals for the post of project-JRF/Project Assistant in the research area of circadian biology under the DST-SERB Project No. SRG/2019/000364 entitled “Temporal profiling of mRNA binding proteins to understand circadian regulation of translation in marine phytoplankton.
Project Description: Using simple unicellular marine phytoplanktons, predominantly dinoflagellates this project aims to understand how circadian clock generated temporal mRBPome regulates physiology and biochemistry in these single celled organisms. We employ biochemical, molecular biology and high throughput proteomics tools to study the circadian mRBPome mediated regulation of translation. Apart from the project the person will assist in daily operations of the laboratory that includes maintenance of project related inventories and ordering of consumables. Appropriate training and supervision specific to the project will be provided.
