I am glad to introduce myself as Dr. Vinu siva. I wanted to express my interest and inquire about the possibility of a position in your esteemed University. I completed my Ph.D in Natural Science (Marine Biotechnology) at Institute of Oceanology, Graduate University of Chinese Academy of Sciences in June 2012. My dissertation established molecular marker or allele mining of immune gene and its association with disease resistance in Scallop which paves the way for future marker assisted selection in Scallop aquaculture. During this period, I also involved in several other work in Shell fish immunology and molecular marker studies. As a postdoctoral fellow at National Taiwan University, I have actively participated to ascertain two unknown RNA-binding protein that specifically bind to Astakine 3’UTR of Penaeus monodon. This work contributed in astakine translational control by RNA-binding protein which may help to reveal the role of astakine in shrimp haematopoiesis. In this period, I was also involved in shrimp Nitric Oxide Synthase (NOS) protein purification and biochemical assay. Before and after my PhD, I was involved in industrial projects in aquaculture both in India and abroad. I am currently working in Sathyabama University, running a DST funded project. I also professionally involved in Biotechnology, Shrimp farming and Aquaculture. With my experience and interest, I like to join in your esteemed company/institute to nurture my career. Thank you very kindly for your consideration Sincerely, Dr. Vinu
