This project is funded by the Core Research Grant of the Science and Engineering Research Board.
You will work on studying early pattern formation in Hydra vulgaris, especially effective physical forces emerging from the interaction of molecular players such as cytoskeletal proteins, and morphogen signals.
The project is a close interdisciplinary collaboration between biology and physics. You will work in a multi-disciplinary area, making quantitative measurements using different techniques including microscopy, cell-based assays and molecular biology. You may also be involved in computational modelling of this system.
The appointment is initially for one year, and may be extended based on progress and performance.
You should have:
- An MSc, BE or BTech degree and at least two years of post-qualification experience.
- Research experience with a strong interest in working on a project that combines theory and experiment.
- Wet-lab experience (required), and basic programming skills (desirable).
Please send in:
- Your CV
- A cover letter stating why you are interested in this position
- The names and contact details of two references.
Send these to <email@example.com> with ‘Application for SRF position’ as the subject line.
