Application are invited from eligible candidates for a temporary post of Research associate -1 (one position) for DBT funded project “Analyzing anti-mycobacterial role of Sphingolipids against pulmonary infection with pathogenic Mycobacteria” initially for a duration of one year with possibility of extension until the end of project until Dec 2017. Fellowship:
Rs 36000 plus 30% HRA per month as per revised DST scale Nature of work planned: We are using several immunological and molecular approaches (siRNA Knockdown method e.g.) to unravel the role of various Sphingolipids and their various derivatives on major antimycobacterial parameters of macrophages and epithelium and their co culture model system.
