Graduate research positions (for graduate students who have been admitted to UC Davis and with potential fellowship support) are available to study the role of morphogenetic signaling pathways in tissue/organ-specific stem cells, developmental disorders, and regeneration processes, using genetically modified mutant mouse models combined with developmental, cell, and molecular biological approaches. Graduate students are welcome to have their lab rotations with us first.
Limited opportunities are also open to undergraduate students who may register CHA199 (Special Research Course) for units or volunteer research experience, and to postgraduates who wish to obtain research experience for volunteer internship at the lab. Based on the amount of lab works and actual contributions to research projects, the undergraduates and volunteers will be acknowledged or listed as the co-author in related publications.
Please keep in mind that all new hires, graduate rotation students, undergraduate students, and volunteers have to go through a strict and sort of time-consuming pre-screening process (including TB test, immunization records, drug and alcohol tests, background check etc.) required by the Shriners Hospital for Children where the lab is located at.
