Postdoctoral Fellow Position in Early Zebrafish Development, University of Washington, Seattle

Posted 7/28/2017

A fully-funded postdoctoral position is available in the Kimelman laboratory in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Washington, Seattle. Research in the Kimelman laboratory focuses on the early development of zebrafish embryos, particularly on the molecular mechanisms regulating morphogenesis of the body, using a wide variety of approaches including imaging, molecular biology, cell biology and genetics. The Kimelman lab is located in the UW medical school, which is a very interactive and highly collaborative environment. Seattle has a very active zebrafish group and a very strong developmental biology community, both of which postdoctoral fellows benefit from.

Applicants should have a recent PhD degree in the biological sciences and a strong record of productivity from their graduate research. Applicants are expected to be creative and motivated, and enjoy working in a collegial environment.

To apply, please submit a cover letter with a short summary of your research interests, and the contact information for three references (including email addresses) to David Kimelman (
