Research Assistant

 Bengaluru, Karnataka


Research Assistant in BIOINFORMATICS — We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic research assistant to join the vector ecology and population genetics team at the Tata Institute for Genetics and Society, Bangalore. The successful applicant will join an established research group working on fundamental and applied aspects of mosquito population genetics. Our primary goal is to understand the role of vector ecology and genetics in the pathogen transmission dynamics. Using fine-scale landscape genetics, we explore the relationships between heterogeneous landscape features and genetic variation in vector populations. With molecular, ecological and landscape data, in conjunction with computational, and analytical approaches, we want to quantify the effects of landscape on gene flow in vector populations which will help understanding of how the vector-borne diseases spread.


Initially for 4 months and extension for a year based on satisfactory review
