The Irazoqui lab has NIH-funded open positions for post baccalaureate training. The projects are focused on the brain-gut-microbiota axis in C elegans and mammalian systems. We strive to create and maintain an inclusive, diverse, and equitable learning environment where scientific discovery goes hand in hand with appreciation and welcoming of everybody’s own unique experiences and perspectives. People who are excited to explore fundamental questions in host-microbe interactions, with an emphasis on innate host defense, within a vibrant and collaborative community of scholars at UMass Chan Medical School are encouraged to contact Javier Irazoqui with any questions. email@example.com.
