Join our team


Our laboratory aims to perform scientific research of the highest quality in the most competitive areas, supported by our commitment to a quality human formation.


We will announce when funded positions are open.

Graduate students

We are part of 3 posgraduate courses at UNAM: Posgrado en Ciencias Biológicas, Posgrado en Ciencias Médicas and Posgrado en Ciencias Biomedicas. Please check their websites for more information. Take a look at our publications and related material . Many of them are in open access journals, so you can read them. If after reading some of them you feel that the lab is right for you, please send me a c.v. that includes courses and previous lab experience and a brief paragraph explaining why you are interested in working in our lab. Thesis students must work in the lab for at least two months in order to apply for the MSc or ScD courses, in order to be ready to pass the examinations


We do not accept volunteers for the moment. As the resources in our country are very limited, we are unable to support wet lab teaching for a large number of students.
