Junior Research Fellow (JRF)

National Agri-Food Biotechnology Institute (NABI), Mohali, is an autonomous R&D Institute under Department of Biotechnology, Government of India. The institute carries out cutting edge research at the interface of agricultural, food, nutritional and post-harvest biotechnology. Major research programs aim at i)understanding the interactions among proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, accumulation of micronutrients, enhancing bioavailability, health functions and processing quality of foods, ii)crop improvement through molecular breeding and transgenic approaches, iii)quality and postharvest stability of farm produce, and iv) the development of novel food products with health potentials etc. NABI has the state of art facilities in the area of genomics (ABI 3730xl, RT-PCR, DNA analyzer, Affymetrix Microarray system, bioanalyzer, liquid handling system, automated DNA extraction system, LCM, Mass-Array (sequenom), etc), proteomics (MALDI-TOF-TOF, Q-TOF, nano-LC, HPLC, GCMS-MS, HP-TLC, UPLC, etc.), high performance computing facility, and food science (NIR, FTIR, SEM, etc.). To accelerate high quality research, applications are invited from motivated candidates with high level of creativity, innovative research ideas and drive for carrying out research aiming at:

Sr. No. Areas Requirement
