The Cairns lab offers a multidisciplinary training environment that includes biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, and genomics.

Our lab includes scientists in several different stages in their career training. We currently have these members:

  • research associate (1),
  • research assistant professor (1),
  • postdoctoral fellows (3),
  • graduate students (10),
  • lab managers/technicians (2).

The laboratory is exceptionally well equipped and is housed in the state-of-the-art Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI). HCI and the University of Utah community include a large number of labs interested in transcription and chromatin regulation.

Who Are We Recruiting?

We are looking for focused, highly motivated people with a keen interest in chromatin biology. An appreciation for mountain biking, hiking, or skiing is also highly encouraged!
