A ‘Postdoctoral Fellow’ position is available. The position is funded by the prestigious Wellcome Trust /DBT India Alliance award. The research entails systematic development of unnatural protein inhibitors to prevent invasion of malaria parasite into human erythrocyte. The successful candidate will join a team of researchers that employ a combination of synthetic organic chemistry, structural biology and chemical biology tools to understand and control the molecular basis of malaria parasite invasion into red blood cells.

The candidate should have a Ph.D. degree in synthetic organic chemistry/ chemical biology/ structural biology/ malaria biology or a related field. Having prior experience with complex small molecule synthesis and/or peptide synthesis and/or protein crystallography and/or malaria parasite culture would be an added advantage. The salary will be commensurate with experience. Interested and highly motivated individuals are encouraged to send a letter of intent and a CV with a list of publications, research experience, and contact information of two referees via email to kmandal@tifrh.res.in with the subject line ‘Application for Postdoctoral Position’.
