Duties & Responsibilities:
The goal of GIS Fellow Programmes is to groom outstanding early career researchers working in research areas relevant to the institute’s strategic goals and the next phase of Genomic Sciences. The strategic research areas include Genomic Technologies (Sequencing), Computational Biology, Artificial Intelligence, and Data Sciences, Precision Medicine and Population Genomics, Epigenetics and Epitranscriptomics and Single-cell Platforms.
The programmes provide exceptionally talented and promising new PhD and/or MD/M.B.B.S. graduates the opportunity to set up and run their research projects as a GIS Fellow or GIS Clinician Scientist (CS) Fellow. They will receive mentoring from the faculty they interact with and will be hosted in a lab of their choice. They will be given financial support, space and resources in a nurturing environment with access to state-of-the-art research facilities. Candidates for these programmes must show exceptional promise to develop into world class researchers, strengthen key strategic research areas of the GIS, and secure independent funding by the end of the Fellowship.
