Postdoctoral positions — neural crest stem cells and adult pigmentation in zebrafish, Parichy lab, University of Virginia

Posted 5/24/2021

The Parichy lab at University of Virginia seeks applicants for postdoctoral positions to study mechanisms of neural crest derived stem cell development and function, as well as adult pigment pattern formation and evolution, using the zebrafish system.

The lab has flexible funding and welcomes a diverse array of questions related to these and related topics. Postdocs are expected to develop their own independent research programs while in the laboratory.

Commonly used approaches include single cell RNA-sequencing, super-resolution and time-lapse imaging, and forward and reverse genetic screening, using lab-dedicated infrastructure. Examples of recent work including preprints can be found at:

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 M. Parichy (
