Depart­ment: Biology


The laboratory studies various aspects of post-embryonic development in zebrafish, focusing on adult pigment stem cells. Current projects include a forward genetic mutant screen to identify new genes required for stem cell development and maintenance as well as the production of transgenic reporter lines for observing these cells in vivo. For a fuller description of on-going projects visit the lab website (http://faculty.washington.edu/dparichy/Index.html).


No previous biology lab experience is required but applicants should have some real-world work experience (e.g., retail, restaurant, construction, military). Preference will be given to given to applicants of freshman or sophomore standing who are able to work at least 12 hours per week and are interested in continuing research for multiple quarters. Exceptional applicants with junior standing may be considered as well.
