The Jackson Laboratory's mission is to discover the genetic basis for preventing, treating and curing human diseases, and to enable research and education for the global biomedical community. And at the heart of this mission are more than 1,300 people who are working hard every day to make a difference.
We have a reputation as being one of the leaders in mammalian genetics. Combine that reputation and history of success with access to cutting edge technologies, vast internal knowledge, and access to collaborators all over the world, and you'll bear witness to a collaborative spirit here that permeates everything we do.
The Jackson Laboratory was voted among the top 15 "Best Places to Work in Academia" in the United States for 2012 in a poll conducted by The Scientist, and was recently named one of the "Best Places to Work in Maine" in a statewide poll.
