Two Postdoc position in cancer Biology, Life Sciences, Microbiology, Biotechnology Mumbai India

Applications are invited for the following Postdoctoral positions:
Post doctoral Fellow in the field of Cancer Epigenetics to work under the guidance of Dr. Subhojit Sen ( with special focus on studying Molecular Epigenetics and drug discovery in Chlamydomonas and Mammalian systems.

Candidate will develop C. reinhardtii as a model system to study epigenetic mechanisms that are related to cancer in mammalian systems and its connection with Cancer Stem Cells, and shuttle back and forth between the two systems to discover new drugs. This will further our basic understanding of epigenetic mechanisms and help develop new approaches to treatment. Essential qualifications: Candidates with a PhD in related branches of Life Sciences/Microbiology/Biotechnology/Plant sciences, with relevant experience in molecular techniques involving DNA, RNA, and proteins are encouraged to apply. Experience: Candidates with genomics expertise and/or Mammalian stem cell biology (and cell culture) or epigenetics experience will be given preference.
Postdoctoral Fellow in cancer Biology to work under the guidance of Dr. Manu Lopus on the project titled: “Understanding the molecular mechanisms of cancer metastasis and development of potent antimetastatic agents”.
