Contact & Open Positions

Graduate Students: The Provenzano lab is always excited to meet motivated graduate students interested in fighting cancer through bioengineering approaches. Here at the UMN, students are admitted into the BME Graduate program and complete laboratory rotations in the Department to find a great fit. If you are interested in applying to the BME graduate program please see the main BME department page at  The amount of availability in the Provenzano lab varies from year to year and depends on project needs and funding resources..

Postdoctoral Fellows: We are always pleased to attract applications from talented and enthusiastic candidates to join our group. If a postdoctoral position is currently available it will be posted on this website (as well as other relevant locations). When there are no funded positions advertised here, and you are interested in joining the group, then connect with us and we can brainstorm potential postdoctoral fellowship support opportunities.
