The Molecular Parasitology Laboratory, headed by Dr. Shruthi S. Vembar, invites applications
for Ph.D. positions from highly motivated individuals
. Located within the Institute of
Bioinformatics and Applied Biotechnology (IBAB), Bengaluru, a pre-eminent academic institute
in the country, the molecular parasitology laboratory (a.k.a. @Plasmobees) uses NGS,
CRISPR/Cas and omics approaches to understand the biology of the fascinating unicellular,
obligate intracellular, eukaroytic parasite that causes malaria, Plasmodium spp.

The successful candidate(s) will work on diverse projects such as the characterization of novel
epigenetic DNA and histone modifications in parasite gene regulation, functional analysis of
atypical RNA-binding proteins, development of state-of-the-art CRISPR/Cas and other gene
manipulation technologies to perform functional genomics, anti-malarial drug discovery, and
modeling host-parasite interaction using systems biology approaches. All of these projects use
a combination of molecular biology, biochemical, cell biological, CRISPR/Cas, NGS and
bioinformatics techniques, and relevant training will be provided. The selected candidate(s) can
avail on-campus accommodation.

Essential Qualifications and Skills:

  1. Master’s degree (M.Sc. OR equivalent) in Life Sciences/ Biochemistry/ Molecular
    Biology/ Biotechnology/ Zoology/ Genetics or related subjects with at least 70% of marks
