We are recruiting!

The Leffler lab is looking for postdocs and students to join the group. We are based in the Eccles Institute for Human Genetics at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City (see below for the view from the lab). We have strong connections to the Biology Department as part of the joint Cluster for Evolution, Genetics and Genomics and to other medical school departments including through the Immunology, Inflammation, and Infectious Disease Initiative

We are looking for group members interested in computational genomics, infectious disease genetics and/or human evolutionary genetics. Candidates should contact Ellen by e-mail. For more information on moving to the university and area see here.

Prospective PhD students should apply through the Molecular Biology program in Biosciences at the University of Utah. First-year students in the program should get in touch to discuss a rotation.

Prospective postdocs should send a CV, a brief statement of past and future research interests, and contact information for three references.

The Leffler Lab is committed to promoting a diverse, inclusive, and positive lab environment. We respect and support individuals’ personal and career goals both in and out of academia and aim towards improving the retention and success of underrepresented groups in science. Our lab also strives to promote diversity in human genetics research and increase representation of non-European populations in evolutionary and biomedical studies.
