Research Opportunities

Faculty

The goal of CSCR is to develop translational and basic stem cell research towards disease biology, novel cellular therapeutics and gene therapy. Scientists (PhD in life sciences or MD with post-doctoral work in molecular and cell biology) interested in such research are invited to apply. Exceptional candidates with other complementary abilities will also be considered. At any time, CSCR will have a few themes of research to which scientists will be expected to contribute.

Newly recruited scientists will be provided lab space, equipment and start up funds. They will also be expected to submit independent grant application for external funding at the earliest. As CSCR is a part of inStem, Bengaluru, all scientists at CSCR will have access to facilities at the Bengaluru campus and are encouraged to collaborate with scientists working there.

Salary will be commensurate with the qualification and experience.
