Postdoctoral Position

 Sonepat, Haryana


Applications are invited for the post of postdoctoral fellowship in a joint program led by Professors L. S. Shashidhara, Vinay Tergaonkar and Shantanu Chowdhury at Trivedi School of Biosciences, Ashoka University. The work would focus on exploring Cell-to-Cell Signaling within the Tumor Microenvironment using experimental and computational methods.

Roles and Responsibilities
Are you enthusiastic about understanding tumor biology cell-by-cell; and, reconstruct this to understand why some tumors become resistant to therapy? If so, and if you are a PhD in experimental cell/​cancer biology and/​or advanced computational biology this might be of your interest.

Briefly, the program would closely analyze the different cell types, in addition to tumor cells, present within the tumor microenvironment. Interactions among different cell types, and the overall outcome of the cell-cell crosstalk determines how treatable’, or not, is a particular cancer. Primary idea would be to decipher this signaling using clinical tissue, tumor-organoid biology and related models. Both experimental and high-
throughput computational methods will form the core of the program.


The appointment will be made for a period of one year with an option for renewal.


Fellowship amount is Rs.12 lakh per annum.


PhD in either experimental or computational biology.
