    Burns are one of the most common and devastating forms of trauma. In 2004, nearly 11 million people worldwide and 1 million people in India were burned moderately or severely. An estimated 0.1 million deaths every year are caused by burns mainly in low- and middle-income countries. The current treatment modalities of burn wound depend on the degree-of-burn, and based on the supportive treatment to the patient to heal the skin tissue by their own. The current treatment modalities of burn trauma are not effective for lost skin tissue regeneration as well as expensive and not affordable for common Indian population.

    Our laboratory (eNARM Lab, https://www.iith.ac.in/~jgiri/ PI: Dr. Jyotsnendu Giri, Associate Professor) at IIT Hyderabad (with collaboration with hospital) leading by highly energetic interdisciplinary peoples, is working at the interface between materials and biology to develop next-generation Regenerative approaches for burn wound healing, which can be applied at patient bedside. We are seeking talented, motivated and passionate individuals (1 no) to join in our efforts for cutting-age research on “Novel biomaterials based personalized for burn wound care at patient bedside”.

    The candidate will get highly interdisciplinary work environment to perform cutting age research. The candidate will closely work with collaborators from Hospital in Hyderabad. JRF/SRF-Dept. of Biomedical Engineering

    Essential Qualification – M Tech, M.S, M.Sc, M Pharm. Chemistry/Pharmacy/ Material Science/Biomedical Egg/Nanotechnology/ Biochemistry with minimum 60 % mark from reputed institutes with relevant experience (2-3 years). For M.Sc background candidate must have Gate or NET (fellowship) qualification.

    Work Experience –

    • Experience on Biomaterials processing or scaffold fabrication particularly polymers based for tissue engineering application
