Program in Gene Function and Expression

Postdoctoral Positions

Postdoctoral positions are available for research training with faculty members in the Program in Gene Function and Expression at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. The research groups in this newly formed Program are highly inter-disciplinary, interactive and collaborative. The permanent laboratories for the Program are housed in a state-of-the-art, new 340,000 sq ft research building.
