Career Opportunities for Chemists and Chemical Engineers: The Regional Centre for Biotechnology (RCB) invites scientists with innovative potential for research and teaching programmes interfacing biotech and chemical sciences as manifested in the fields of drug discovery, tissue engineering and synthetic biology.
General introduction: RCB, an international nodal point with local and global partnerships synergizing with UNESCO, will expand the opportunities to create world-class research and education.
- The RCB recognizes that expertise and innovation in the core domains of chemistry, materials science, chemical engineering and nanoscience is critical for the development of novel perspectives in biotechnology, and invites chemists and chemical engineers of the highest caliber and credibility to participate in this shared adventure to transform the biotech sciences.
- A demonstrated record of scientific productivity in a wide range of areas in chemistry and chemical engineering in the form of recent peer-reviewed publications in scientific journals of high international repute and/or internationally valid and productive patents is essential, as is some indication of independence in scientific thinking, and a minimum of three years of postdoctoral experience.
- Faculty appointments will be offered from entry to program coordinator levels depending on the quantum of experience and the quality of scientific productivity. Investigators will be provided shared laboratory space and adequate start-up resources.
- They are expected to generate eventual extramural project-based funding.
Interim laboratories of RCB are presently located in Gurgaon, neighboring the South Delhi area, which has adequate housing, transportation and schooling facilities. The permanent laboratories will come up within the Health Biotech Science Cluster (HBSC) at Faridabad over the next three years.
Application Procedure: Interested scientists are invited to send their bio-data containing details of qualification, positions held, professional experience/distinctions, copies of notable publications, and the names, addresses, fax numbers, telephone numbers and electronic mail addresses of three potential referees, to the Executive Director, Regional Centre for Biotechnology, 180, Udyog Vihar, Phase I, Gurgaon 122016, Haryana, India.
An advance electronic copy of the bio-data may be sent to the e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. People working in public sector institutions within India are requested to have their applications forwarded through proper channels. Only short-listed candidates will be contacted for further discussions.
