We aim to bring together a diverse set of scientists that have the common goal of doing rigorous and impactful research in a collaborative and supportive environment.

Individuals of all backgrounds, especially women and other underrepresented minorities in science, interested in RNA biology are highly encouraged to inquire about rotation opportunities or apply for open positions. 


Undergraduate Students

Mentored research for undergraduates is available. Get your hands wet in real science, beyond of just doing the lab’s glassware. Contact Mike to learn more.


Graduate Students

Interested in RNA biology, how mRNA translation is regulated, or mechanisms of human disease? We are always looking for excited graduate students of all experience levels to join our team. Contact Mike to schedule a time to visit the lab and chat more about potential rotation projects.


Postdoctoral Fellows

Multiple postdoc positions are available mid-September 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter. Potential research projects include studying how aberrant translation initiation from atypical start codons (those that differ from the universal AUG start codon) is dysregulated during cell stress and in human disease. If interested, please contact Mike with a cover letter explaining you career goals and with a CV. We look forward to hearing from you!


Research Associate/ Lab Manager

A position for a long-term research associate is available mid-September 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter. Initial responsibilities will be primarily devoted toward his/her own research project with some general lab housekeeping tasks (e.g., upkeep on equipment, freezers, incubators, etc.). Ideally, more responsibilities will be given in time to help maintain the growing lab (e.g., ordering, training new members, scheduling). Interested in joining the team? Contact Mike with a cover letter & CV.
