Objective of the 3 years position is a number of research articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals, together with a PhD thesis
leading to the grant of the PhD degree at the Jain University.

How to apply:

Application should contain a detail resume, one photograph, contact details including phone number, email and postal address,
photocopies of educational/professional qualifications. Please also mention preferred date of joining if selected. Completed applications should reach Prof. Geetha Balakrishna, Professor, Center for Nano and Material Sciences (CNMS), Jain Global Campus, 45 km, NH – 209, Jakkasandra Post, Kanakapura Taluk, Ramanagara District -562 112, Bangalore Rural, Karnataka, India by 15th December, 2014. Applicants are encouraged to apply through e-mail (E-mail: br.geetha@jainuniversity.ac.in). Also arrange to send in at least two references that may be contacted regarding your recent work. Only shortlisted candidates will be called for the interview. Selected candidates will be intimated by email. No TA/DA will be paid for appearing in the interview.

Project involved:

The present proposal focuses on design, synthesis and spectral characterization of fluoreseien and rhodamine derivatives and
studying their absorption and emission properties for fluorimetric/colorimetric sensing of Cu, Fe and Zn in blood serum and cell lines.
The designing of the probes involves the spirolactam ring opening basis (fluorimetric/colorimetric OFF-ON mode). Various derivatives of rhodamine and fluoreseien are synthesized with various amines, aldehyde and other functional bearing groups. Then they are characterized by >H and 13C NMR and ESI-MS techniques. Finally their absorbance and emission properties have been studied inorder to develop fluorescence /colorimetric protocols for Cu, Fe and Zn. Then these probes have been used for fluorimetric/colorimetric determination of Cu, Fe and Zn in blood serum. Then these probes are tested for the fluorescence imaging of the above said metals in various cultured cell lines.
