Current Openings


We are always interested in bright and enthusiastic undergraduate volunteers.

They can be from any institution.

Those who are interested should be prepared to make a minimum 1-year commitment of ~16+ hours / week.

We will consider BISP 199 UCSD course credit after 2 quarters worth of experience in the lab.

We are open and encouraging about developing undergraduate experiments into Masters thesis projects.


For those interested in graduate school: 

The Zarrinpar Lab is part of both the UCSD Neurosciences Program and the
UCSD Biomedical Sciences Program.

 We welcome rotation students as part of any quarter.


Please see our ad.

We currently are in need of an individual with an extensive background in metabolism, specialized in bile acid physiology, gut-liver signaling, and/or glucose-lipid homeostasis.

Ideally, the individual would be interested in determining the role of the gut microbiome in metabolic homeostasis.

It doesn’t make sense to hire smart people and tell them what to do; we hire smart people so they can tell us what to do.
