Junior Research Fellow:

Applications are invited for the following project positions in the MoES, Government of India sponsored project, “Ecology of Halo-Anoxygenic Phototrophic Bacteria of Marine Habitats of Gujarat” from qualified candidates. Candidates interested are requested to send their applications in the prescribed format (attached with this advertisement) to the Principal Investigator on or before 20-09-14. Short listed candidates will be called for an interview before the selection committee intimating the date and venue.

Positions Qualification & Experience Consolidated Pay per month (Rs) Duration

Sciences/Bioinformatics] Must have qualified  UGC/CSIR-NET/ GATE/ ICMR/ICAR JRF     As per DST guidelines 3 years

  About the project: Gujarat has one of the most extended coastal ecosystems of India with a coastline of 1653 km. The coastal habitats of Gujarat vary from marine sediments surface waters, salty soils and salt pans which are both pristine and heavily polluted. Anoxygenic phototrophic bacteria (APB), a physiological group is interspersed with many chemotrophs. They possess bacteriochlorophyll and carry out anoxygenic photosynthesis. The present project aims at systematic extensive survey on the diversity of different phylogenetic lineages of anoxygenic phototrophic bacteria after culturing and also from the metagenome. Genetic diversity studies involve isolation of metagenome from the samples, amplification of 16S rRNA gene/pufL, pufL, M/fmo genes etc. and bioinformatic analysis. The work on cultured diversity involves selective enrichment, purification, identification and polyphasic characterization for description of novel taxa. The research work involves an inter-disciplinary approach involving microbiology and bioinformatics which helps the candidate to be trained in the upcoming areas of metagenomics/bacterial diversity/ecology. Selected candidates are expected to register for Ph.D.
