http://dparichy.as.virginia.edu/#parichylab

Postdoctoral positions are available in the Parichy lab at University of Virginia. The lab studies development using zebrafish and related species. Current emphases include hormonal control over post-embryonic neural crest stem cells, plasticity in cell state, evolution of novel cell types, and mechanisms of pattern formation and cell–cell communication within zebrafish and across Danio species. Methods include super-resolution time-lapse imaging on lab-dedicated microscopes, single cell RNA-sequencing, forward and reverse genetics, conditional manipulation of gene activity, and others.

Examples of recent work include:

The Parichy lab is situated in a highly interactive department with state-of-the-art facilities and UVA has outstanding current and historical strengths in morphogenesis and pattern formation.

Applicants must have or be pursuing a Ph.D. and must have experience with modern methods of developmental biology. Prior experience with zebrafish is not required.

Applicants should submit the following to Dr. David Parichy (dparichy@virginia.edu):

  • CV
  • contact information for three references
  • brief description of interests, experience and career goals
