Lab environment

image-right The projects in the lab are, by nature, quite interdisciplinary (blending developmental biology, neuroscience, regeneration, and disease modeling). To tackle these projects we use a variety of in vivo and in silico techniques. Lab members are expected to work hard, ask questions, and have fun doing science.

The lab values creating safe and affirming learning and work environments. We seek to recruit trainees from diverse backgrounds and with diverse skill sets. We take a growth mindset approach to mentorship and aim to develop new skills based on individuals’ goals and projects.

The lab actively engages with the zebrafish, developmental biology, and neuroscience communities in Seattle. Lab members have a variety of opportunities to present their work and network within this broad community (departmental meetings, joint lab meetings, local and regional meetings).

Postdoctoral fellows

The lab is actively recruiting postdocs. Interested candidates should send a brief cover letter and CV to Jeff contact

Graduate students

Grad students should apply through the Biology, MCB, or Neuroscience programs. Students interested in the lab are encouraged to contact Jeff prior to applying. Potential rotation projects currently include:

  • Developmental patterning of sensory structures
  • RNAseq profiling of skin cell types in various genetic backgrounds
  • Imaging tissue and nerve regeneration

Research technicians

Future openings for research tech positions will be posted here.

Undergraduate students

Please check back later in winter quarter 2022. Future openings will be posted here and in the URP database.
