Working towards the development of precise genomic solutions to improve human health.
Postdoc @ JAX
We welcome you to make the most of your postdoctoral training by joining our world-class nonprofit research institution that has a legacy of innovation and discovery in genetics and genomics. As a Postdoctoral Associate at The Jackson Laboratory, you can conduct cutting-edge research on the complex diseases impacting human health.
Postdoc opportunities are available in diverse research areas including aging, bioinformatics, cancer, computational biology, development, epigenetics, metabolism, immunology, infectious diseases, neurobiology, reproduction and systems genetics. Explore our faculty labs to discover how your skills and interests can contribute to our quest for precise genomic solutions for disease.
At JAX, diversity is essential to our success. We know that our differences contribute to creative problem-solving at the bench and in the workplace to facilitate our mission to improve human health. JAX Genomic Education is committed to recruiting talented Postdoctoral Associates from diverse backgrounds and identities, including those currently under-represented in the biomedical sciences.
JAX boasts three locations in Maine. Researchers in Bar Harbor investigate the genetic causes of human disease by using the mouse as a model. Our Ellsworth campus provides the global biomedical research community with JAX® Mice at the highest health status. Maine Cancer Genomics Initiative in Augusta brings cutting-edge cancer care to patients across Maine.
Our Farmington campus is home to The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine. Researchers here focus on human genomics, complementing our long history of mammalian genetics expertise.
Beyond the Bench
JAX has a vibrant scientific and postdoctoral community with opportunities to connect outside of the lab. Our Genomic Education team supports professional development through trainee-targeted workshops, trainings, and courses. Our training campuses in Bar Harbor, Maine, and Farmington, Connecticut are situated in great communities with diverse options for housing, dining, and outdoor recreation so you can maintain a healthy work-life balance.
