At the Repository of Tomato Genomics Resources (http://uohyd.ac.in/images/index.html), (DBT Centre of Excellence and Innovation in Biotechnology (CEIB): "Program Support on Genome Engineering of Tomato”) we are working on Tomato Functional Genomics involving Genome Editing, Exome Capture, Proteomics, and Metabolomics along with TILLING approaches to manipulate the fruit ripening in tomato. The current aims of the group are to isolate tomato mutants with high lycopene, β-carotene (provitamin A), folate content and long shelf life of fruits.
1. Research Associate-I - 1 position: Applicants should have very good experience in proteomics, preferably using plant tissues in examining posttranslational modifications, quantitative proteomics using shotgun approaches, basic knowledge of mass spectrometry and should be supported by publications. Selected candidate would be paid Rs. 36,000+30% HRA. The candidates meeting the above specifications and who have submitted PhD Thesis and have research publications are also encouraged to apply.
2. Research Associate-II - 1 position: Applicants should have very good experience in metabolomics-GC-MS and LC-MS, especially lipidomics, basic molecular biology and biochemistry in tomato or other higher plants and should be supported by publications. Experience in handling tomato plants, especially the fruit ripening aspects is a plus. Selected candidate would be paid Rs. 38,000+30% HRA. The candidates meeting the above specifications and who have submitted PhD Thesis and have research publications are also encouraged to apply.
3. Research Assistant - 1 position: Applicants should have minimum one-year experience in basic molecular biology and biochemistry techniques. M.Sc. in Plant Molecular Biology/Biochemistry with experience in handling plants is required. Fresher’s can apply provided they have an excellent academic record and have interest to work on plants. Selected candidates would be paid a consolidated pay of Rs. 13000/-pm.
