We are actively recruiting Postdoctoral Research Associates, Graduate Students, and Research Assistants.


Our lab provides exciting opportunities to delineate new roles for mitochondria in health and disease. Open projects involve investigation of mitochondria as signaling organelles in the immune system and exploring innate immune and inflammatory responses in mouse models of human disease.

The Jackson Laboratory is an independent, nonprofit biomedical research institution with a National Cancer Institute-designated Cancer Center and nearly 3,000 employees in locations across the United States (Maine, Connecticut, California), Japan and China. Its mission is to discover precise genomic solutions for disease and empower the global biomedical community in the shared quest to improve human health.

Founded in 1929, JAX applies over nine decades of expertise in genetics to increase understanding of human disease, advancing treatments and cures for cancer, neurological and immune disorders, diabetes, aging and heart disease. It models and interprets genomic complexity, integrates basic research with clinical application, educates current and future scientists, and provides critical data, tools and services to the global biomedical community.
