There are many exciting projects in the lab that could be pursued by incoming postdocs, and this is an excellent environment for postdoctoral training. The setting is very collaborative, both within our lab and between labs at the University of Utah. Our lab space is part of an open lab, with additional specialty rooms for biochemistry, microscopy, tissue culture, and computer work. Our lab adjoins those of Don Ayer and Brad Cairns. During the academic year we have a Transcription Journal Club that these labs, and others within Huntsman Cancer Institute, participate in. The Department of Oncological Sciences has around 30 postdocs and several forums for interaction among institute members. For example, the weekly internal seminar series is a great way to keep up with what is going on as well as to present your work and receive feedback.
We have funding available for starting postdocs, although in most cases postdocs are expected to apply for independent funding and this is something we would work together on.
