The Tavtigian lab offers a multidisciplinary training environment that includes biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, and genomics. The lab comprises scientists in several different stages in their career training: Research faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, lab manager/technicians, and undergraduates. 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 cancer susceptibility to cancer. We are looking for focused, highly motivated people who want to join our HCI research team.
