Research Associate I - https://www.ummsjobs.com/job/7992/

Lawson Lab – Our laboratory is an active biomedical research laboratory that utilizes the zebrafish as a model system to study blood vessel development. 

Research Associate – https://www.ummsjobs.com/job/8061/

Research Associate I - https://www.ummsjobs.com/job/8060/

Benanti Lab - Research positions are available in the Benanti laboratory to study the mechanisms that control cell growth and division. The Benanti Lab utilizes molecular, genetic, and systems biology approaches to study cell cycle regulation in yeast and human cells.

Research Associate - https://www.ummsjobs.com/job/8139/

Research Associate I - https://www.ummsjobs.com/job/8138/

Post Doctoral Associate - https://www.ummsjobs.com/job/5439/

Wolfe Lab - Research is focused on the creation of improved genome editing technologies to facilitate both efficient and precise editing of vertebrate genomes.  

Post Doctoral Associate - https://www.ummsjobs.com/job/6019/

Cantor Lab - Research focuses on understanding how tumor suppressor proteins function to maintain genomic integrity and suppress cancer. 

Research Lab Tech I - https://www.ummsjobs.com/job/7305/

Research Lab Tech II - https://www.ummsjobs.com/job/7279/

Lewis Lab - Recent advances in oncology have demonstrated the efficacy of targeted therapeutics that inhibit key tumor-driving proteins or processes. Therefore, a primary goal of our laboratory is to elucidate the molecular mechanisms essential for the development and progression of pancreatic and hepatocellular carcinomas, with the goal of informing novel treatment strategies for these malignancies. 

Research Associate - https://www.ummsjobs.com/job/7923/

Research Associate I - https://www.ummsjobs.com/job/7932/

Post Doctoral Associate - https://www.ummsjobs.com/job/7450/

Brodsky Lab - We are developing CRISPR-Cas9-based methods to inactivate or correct the mutant gene that causes autosomal dominant Huntington’s disease (HD). We collaborate with multiple research groups to apply gene editing techniques to develop methods to model or correct human genetic disorders in cell lines and rodent models.

Research Lab Tech I - https://www.ummsjobs.com/job/8149/

Research Associate  - https://www.ummsjobs.com/job/8176/

Research Associate I - https://www.ummsjobs.com/job/8171/

Mercurio Lab - We are interested in the initiation and progression of epithelial-derived tumors (carcinomas), especially aggressive, poorly differentiated tumors. Our research projects emphasize molecular cell biology but they derive from the analysis and clinical behavior of carcinomas.  Our goal is to identify mechanisms that account for the loss of differentiation and the highly aggressive behavior of these tumors, and to exploit these mechanisms to improve prognosis and therapy.   A major focus of this work is to define mechanisms that control the genesis and function of cancer stem cells with an emphasis on the role of integrin and VEGF signaling.

Research Lab Tech I - https://www.ummsjobs.com/job/7303/

Research Lab Tech II - https://www.ummsjobs.com/job/7306/

Bergmann Lab - The overarching goal of our research is to investigate programmed cell death (apoptosis) and the consequences of apoptosis in the context of multicellular organisms. In particular, we are focusing on understanding the genetic control of apoptosis (cell death), the integration of apoptosis in developing organisms (cell competition) and the influences of apoptotic cells on the behavior of neighboring surviving cells (compensatory proliferation). 

Research Associate - https://www.ummsjobs.com/job/7762/

Research Associate I  - https://www.ummsjobs.com/job/7764/

Kaufman Lab - We study proteins that regulate chromosome structure and function, using cell biological and genomic tools to analyze mammalian chromosome organization.

Research Associate - https://www.ummsjobs.com/job/7753/

Research Associate I - https://www.ummsjobs.com/job/7752/

Ruscetti Lab - Our laboratory is studying how tumors, and in particular prostate and pancreatic cancers, escape immune surveillance during disease progression, and trying to restore tumor suppressive pathways lost early during tumor inception for cancer immunotherapy.
