Jarrett received his Ph.D. from the Univ. North Carolina-Chapel Hill in 1976. After postdoctoral fellowships at the Mayo Clinic, UCSD, and U.GA , he began an assistant professorship at IN U-Purdue U at Indianapolis. After promotion he joined the faculty at the U. TN Health Science Center where he was promoted to professor and remained for 18 years. In 2006, he joined the faculty at U. TX San Antonio as the Lutcher Brown Distinguished Professor of Biochemistry where he remains. His research has involved the purification of transcription factors and the RNA pol 2 transcription complex. His discoveries have included coupling methods which led to the first DNA-silica HPLC columns and developed both oligonucleotide trapping and promoter trapping to purify transcription proteins for mass spectrometry characterization. Most recently, this research has involved coating MALDI plates to direct proteomic discovery to DNA-binding proteins for a new method called T3.
