Huntsman Cancer Institute Spike Lab

Join Our Lab

Have a cool idea? Or, want to expand on a project we're currently pursuing? We are looking for talented and motivated junior colleagues to join our group.

It is an exciting time as our lab is operating in new scientific territory with many avenues for investigation. We are situated in Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) at the University of Utah, a Comprehensive Cancer Center designated by the National Cancer Institute. HCI offers opportunities to integrate basic cancer research with other departments at the University of Utah and with the clinical environments of the University Hospitals and Huntsman Cancer Hospital. The open lab environment at HCI fosters interaction and collaboration with neighboring groups who are working at the forefront of nuclear control, metabolism, cell signaling and other disciplines.

The University of Utah and HCI are located in Salt Lake City, a modern city with a vibrant arts scene, amazing vistas and skiing, and even a robust and growing nightlife and local brew culture.  SLC was recently ranked among the top five cities for its environment for young professionals and for its job creation power including tech jobs, as well as for its downtown, its hiking, and its friendliness.
