JRF Vacancy in Biotechnology / Life Sciences - SERB | 25 Apr, 2019

Applications are invited for Junior Research Fellowship position in the following project

Name of the Project Understanding role of the mTOR pathway in response to glucose and acetate in Glioblastoma: A functional genomics and proteomics approach.
Name of Sponsoring agency SERB
Duration of the Project 3 Years (2018-2021)
Fellowship Rs. 15,000 / month  for three years
Essential Qualification First Class in M.Tech (Biotechnology) / M.Sc (Biotechnology) / M.Sc (Life Sciences). Candidate who has qualified NET/ GATE will be preferred.
Project Description Glioblastoma is an aggressive cancer with poor patient survival of less than 15 months. Although few therapeutic molecules such as temozolomide (TMZ) are available the survival rate is very less due to less bioavailability and inability to cross blood-brain barrier (BBB). Studies have elucidated the role of glucose and acetate in causing aggressiveness and drug resistance of this cancer via


EGFR /PI3K /Akt /mTOR pathway. This project aims at identification of non-coding RNAs that regulate tumor cell

Proliferation in GBM cells during glucose and acetate availability by various cell based assays and In Vivo model system.

Desirable (but not necessary) Candidates having previous experience in techniques such as cell-culture, Western blotting, Agarose gel electrophoresis, RT-PCR, MTT assay, Flow-cytometry, chromatin epigenetics (OR) Candidates with lot of interest in the field of cancer cell metabolism, microRNA, siRNA are  encouraged to apply.

Interested candidates may send (email) their resume to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. on or before 25th April, 2019. The date of written examination, interview and selection will be informed soon. No TA/DA will be paid for their appearing in the interview.
