Career Profile

Degree: Doctoral Degree
Career Level: Experienced
Occupation: Life, Physical, and Social science
Career Title: Microbiologists, Soil and Plant Scientists, Life Scientists, All Other
Target Title: Microbiology, Plant-Microbe Interaction
Skills: Data Science;Soil microbial ecology;
Goal: my overall research goal is to answer the questions pertinent to microbial ecology and how the microbes benefits the host and the associated environment.
HighLight: I have been working on plant-microbe interaction since my PhD (Gauhati University, Guwahati, India, 2015) wherein, I studied mycorrhizal-plant-fungal leaf pathogen tripartite interaction along with soil microbial community research study. My first post-doctoral study in CSIR-NBRI, Lucknow, India (Feb 2016–Jan 2017) was to study the impact of novel PGPR on plant fitness and ecology under high alkaline environment. My second post-doctoral study (Jan 2017 – Jan 2019) at department of ecology and evolution, university of Chicago (Advisor: Dr. Joy M. Bergelson, Chair & Professor) was about establishing synthetic microbial (bacterial, fungal, oomycetes) community for improved plant fitness against stress conditions (Plant-microbiome study). I have experience in identification, characterization of microbes, plant-microbe/microbiome interaction under greenhouse/field condition, microbial community analysis, data analysis using R and SPSS. I have also discovered a novel fungal plant pathogen (DOI: 10.1016/j.resmic.2013.08.003) and co-invented method for its detection (Patent 2991/DEL/2014). In addition, I have completed 2 months online training for data science using R (for details, please go through my CV attached herewith the application). My personal skills include good written and oral communication and interpersonal skills. I am an enthusiastic and diligent researcher who is comfortable working in a fast-paced environment both as a team and an independent. I have listed complete set of skills, educational background and experience in the enclosed curriculum vitae. I have J-1 visa and DS-2019 (sponsored by university of Chicago) valid up to Jan 2020 and 2021 respectively. My current post-doctoral fellowship tenure ends on Jan 31, 2019. So, if after the selection process, the recruitment members feel that my candidature is suitable for the position, then, I am ready to start immediately (i.e., Feb 01, 2019).

01/2017 - current
Post-doctoral Scholar
Responsibility/duty Worked on the project "Establishment of synthetic microbial community and study of Arabidopsis thaliana-microbiome interaction"
I have been working on establishing synthetic microbial (bacterial, fungal, oomycetes) community for improved plant fitness against stress conditions (Plant-microbiome study) has led to understand that mother nature itself has all the solutions to any challenge and that is why, she has created microbes. Particularly, the plant-microbiome study has resulted into collection of diverse microbes such as bacteria (aerobes, anaerobes/facultative anaerobes), oomycetes and fungi from wild Arabidopsis thaliana plants of mid-west regions of USA. We are beginning to understand that the host harbor huge and varied number of microbes with exceptions of similarity playing significant roles in the earlier’ s fitness.

Research Associate
As RA, I am working on fate of ecosystem services in agro-ecosystem with plant growth promoter microbes (PGPM; both bacteria and fungi) and Plant interaction under natural stress conditions such as drought, salinity and high alkaline pH. Besides this, I am also working on ecological adaptation of microbes under natural stress conditions; and study on microbial community ecology, diversity, evolution and meta-genomics.
