PositionProject Research Scientist-I (Non-Medical)
Number of VacancyOne
         Funding Agency  ICMR
Project TitleComputational Biology assisted Design, Synthesis and Biological screening of small molecule Inhibitors against MurE Ligase from S. Typhi
Principal InvestigatorProf. Nasimul Hoda
Department and InstitutionDepartment of Chemistry Jamia Millia Islamia, Jamia Nagar, New Delhi 110025, INDIA
Project TenureInitially for a period of one year with the provision of further continuation (till duration of the project, total 24 months) subject to satisfactory performance
Project DescriptionInterested candidates are welcome to apply for the positionProject Research Scientist-I (Non-Medical) for a comprehensive drug discovery project aimed to discover potential MurE Ligase inhibitors for the development of potential anti-microbial agents. Salmonella enterica is a highly infectious bacteria which causes gastroenteritis and typhoid diseases. Due to the cumulative emergence of bacterial strains resistant to presently accessible antibiotics has created unfulfilled medical demands in antibacterial therapy. MurE ligase plays a pivotal role in peptidoglycan biosynthesis and essential for the development of bacterial cell wall and unique to prokaryotic cells. These features make MurE ligase as an attractive drug target for the development of novel antimicrobials agents, which are effective against both wild type and mutant S. Typhi strains. In order to rationally design MurE ligase inhibitors structurebased drug design strategy would be utilized to obtain thiazolidin-4-one based potential inhibitors. The identified molecules will be synthesized and their binding and inhibitory activity against MurE ligase will be carried out using SPR, ITC and other bioanalytical techniques. The minimum inhibition concentration for each identified inhibitors will be determined.
Fellowship Rs. 56,000 + Rs.15120 (27% HRA) = Rs 71,120/- p.m (OM 16/29/2023 Dt. 01.08.2023)
