M S Swaminathan Research Foundation is inviting applications for a Project Associate‑1 (One position).
The candidate is expected to deliver on the required project objectives. The DST-Indo French collaborative CEFIPRA project titled ‘Mapping Structure Function Relationships of the Sodium Transporter HKT1; 5 in Oryza Species for new determinants of Salinity Tolerance’.
The project will examine sodium transporter variation in cultivated rice and also within the genus Oryza through sequence mining, cloning, bioinformatics modelling and assessment of sodium transporting function in heterologous expression system(s). The selected candidate will also have an opportunity to obtain short term training in functional transporter assays in heterologous using electrophysiology (two-electrode voltage-clamp) in a collaborator’s laboratory in France.
