Research Opportunity: Genetic analysis of zebrafish nervous system development, damage and regeneration

Con­tact Name: David Raible

Con­tact Email: draible[at]

Depart­ment: Biological Structure


We use the zebrafish system, molecular genetics, advanced microscopy and small molecule screening to uncover mechanisms underlying development, cell death and regeneration in the peripheral nervous system. Undergraduates would partner with a senior graduate student or postdoctoral fellow to carry out research with the opportunity to take on independent projects.


Background in Biological Sciences.
Minimum 3.0 GPA.
Schedule to dedicate 10-15 hours per week.
