Veterinarian postdoctoral training in biomedical research and mouse genetics

The Jackson Laboratory, a basic-research institution focused on genetics of the laboratory mouse, invites applications to a postdoctoral research training program for veterinarians. This 3 year program offers mentor-based training in normal mammalian development and in animal models of human disease.

Major emphasis is placed on:

  • Genome organization
  • Developmental biology
  • Metabolic diseases
  • Neurogenetics
  • Genetics of complex traits
  • Cancer genetics
  • Immunology-hematology
  • Bioinformatics

Options for Ph.D. program, and partial preparation for certification by the American College of Veterinary Pathologists and/or American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine are possible in association with the core program in mammalian genetics.

Interested individuals may apply by submitting a curriculum vitae, statement of goals and interests, GRE scores (if available), graduate transcript, and the names of three references.
