Research Opportunities

A wide variety of training positions are periodically available in our lab. 

Our Research Focus

Research projects in the Largaespada lab are aimed at identifying mutations and other changes that drive the development of cancer, which must be determined for developing molecularly targeted therapeutics.

Some key research methods and areas of focus include:

  • Sleeping Beauty
  • New Mouse Models
  • Molecular Biology
  • Neurofibromatosis Type 1
  • Sarcoma
  • Brain Tumors

Post-doctoral fellowship positions

Candidates must be highly motivated, productive and dedicated to a research career. The lab also welcomes recent PhD graduates who want to learn new research methods and embark on a successful academic career. 

Graduate student research positions

The lab welcomes greaduate students from a variety of graduate programs. MICaB, MCDB&G, and Neuroscience are just some of the graduate programs of students who have worked in the lab. 

Undergraduate volunteers

Undergrate volunteers frequently join the lab to experience working in a research lab. These personnel are paired with a graduate student or a post-doctoral fellow to help with a specific research project. This is a great opportunity to learn new research methods.

High School volunteers

On rare occassions, the lab will take on high school volunteers over summer break. Candidates must have an excellent transcript and be highly motivated. 

Currently there are no positions available in the lab. But check back as any new opportunities will be posted here.
