Are you NICE?

Are you a chemist interested in how molecules are involved in natural interactions? Are you an engineer interested in gaining insights from biology? Are you a biologist interested in following a natural phenomenon from molecules to ecosystems? If so, the NICE lab could be for you. We are seeking passionate individuals dedicated to addressing big questions on chemical interactions. Whatever their backgrounds, NICE lab members are ready to explore both a new field site and a new molecular or physiological technique. Our scientists start in the field, observing organisms and gaining insights with a naturalist’s eye. They then take these observations back into the laboratory to address the mechanistic underpinnings of the natural observations. As a final step, we try to replicate the phenomenon in the lab using behavioral, physiological, and/or virtual reality tools, and assess it back in the natural environment where it was first observed. We are creative, dedicated, and adventurous. We are NICE. If you think you are NICE, too, please contact us at info@nice.ncbs.res.in.


CALLING ALL CHEMISTS!  Are you a chemist interested in the role that natural products play in the environment? Have you ever wondered what the compounds isolated from nature actually do? The NICE Group has a 2-year fully funded postdoctoral position available immediately to examine the chemical basis of biotic interactions, particularly between plants and insects. Nevertheless, the scientist will have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects ranging from microbes to mammals. The candidate should have a degree in chemistry or a related field, and should have experience in the isolation and identification of natural products.  Experience with GC-MS and various extraction techniques is preferred.  Interested candidates should send a CV and statement of interest in the NICE group to info@nice.ncbs.res.in. National and  International candidates are encouraged to apply. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

    Hello, I am postgraduate in zoology (Specialization in entomology) from University of Calicut(Results of final semester awaiting). It has always been a passion of mine to get into the nature and observe the diverse insect world. I am enthrilled by the works and initiatives of NICE and am looking forward to get in such an endeavor. Could you let me know if there is an opening for JRF in the same
