Postdoctoral Position available in Molecular and Cell Biology at IISER Mohali
in a research project funded by a Wellcome-Trust/DBT India Alliance Intermediate Fellowship Grant
Title: Molecular mechanism of Cell-cell adhesion by non-classical cadherins
This project aims to decipher the molecular mechanism of non-classical cadherins in cell-cell junction. Recently, non-classical Cadherin, cadherin-23 has been found at the cell-cell junction of Breast-cancer cells mediating both homotypic and heterotypic cell-adhesion with Fibroblasts. We are interested to understand the molecular and structural details of these molecules at the cell-cell junction.
We are an interdisciplinary research group who use single molecule techniques to understand biology quantitatively. To know more about our research interests, please visit our web-page.
Duration: One year and extendable up to 3 years upon evaluation
Emoluments: As per IISER Mohali
