Job Location:  Gandhinagar
Last Date to apply23/7/2017
Job Address:  Indian Institute of Technology (IIT Gandhinagar), Gandhinagar.

Job Details: 

For this Junior Research Fellow post, job application is accepting and read below for more details.
(a) Position available: One Junior Research Fellow (JRF) under the following research project funded by the Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB), Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India.
(b) Title of the project: “Molecular Mechanisms of Kinesin-3 Autoregulation and Their Biophysical Measurements.”
(c) Principal Investigator: Dr. Virupakshi Soppina
(d) Discipline: Biological Engineering.
(e) Duration: Initial appointment for one year, extendable up to 3 years based on performance.
(f) Minimum Eligibility: First class M.Sc. or M.Tech degree in any discipline of Life Science from a recognized University/Institute. Candidate should have valid CSIR NET / UGC or GATE or equivalent fellowship. An aptitude for learning new techniques is a must.
(g) Application deadline: 23rd July 2017
(h) Research Description: Our lab is interested in understanding the cytoskeletal systems and their roles in intracellular trafficking in mammalian cells. Molecular motors of the kinesin and dynein families are mechanochemical enzymes that convert the chemical energy derived from ATP hydrolysis to mechanical energy to generate force and motion along microtubule tracks to carry cargoes (e.g. proteins, mRNA, vesicles, endosomes) towards the plus (kinesins) and minus ends (dyneins) of the microtubules, a process termed "intracellular transport".

My research at IITGN is focused on major cellular and neuronal transporter of kinesin-3 family motors. In particular, I am passionately interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms of kinesin-3 based neuronal cargo trafficking, regulation, and their physiological significance. The mammalian kinesin-3 family is one of the largest of the kinesin superfamily and consists of five subfamilies. Kinesin-3 motors have been found to play important roles across species in intracellular and neuronal transport, development, cell signaling, and cytokinesis. Defects in kinesin-3 transport have been implicated in diverse genetic, developmental, neurodegenerative and cancer diseases. Despite their widespread functions and clinical importance, the mechanisms of kinesin-3 mediated intracellular transport, regulations and their deficiencies in the context of human diseases are largely unknown.
Selection Procedure:
  1. Candidates can apply on or before 23/7/2017.
  2. No Detailed information about the selection process is mentioned in the recruitment notification.
