Postdoctoral Research Fellow(s), developmental mechanisms of congenital disease
University of Colorado School of Medicine, Anschutz Medical Campus
To expand our lab’s international team at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, Section of Developmental Biology, we are looking to recruit postdoctoral fellows interested in developmental mechanisms of congenital cardiac, cardiovascular, hematopoietic, cardiopharyngeal, and other mesoderm-affecting diseases and syndromes.

We study the early origins of mesodermal cell fates, in particular within the lateral plate mesoderm (LPM) and notochord, using advanced transgenic approaches, gene-regulatory element discovery, genome editing, cross-species comparisons, gene variant testing, and live imaging using the zebrafish as principal model. Our work provides interfaces for developmental biology, evo-devo, and disease modeling projects that we pursue with a national and international network of collaborators.

More info about our lab, our lab members, and recent publications can be found on our lab website:

All positions are fully funded. We offer an international, interactive, inclusive, and collaborative lab environment with access to state-of-the-art imaging resources and facilities. Our goal is to individually mentor our lab members aligned with our lab’s and individual lab members’ career goals. Our lab is located at the Anschutz Medical Campus within the Department of Pediatrics, Section of Developmental Biology, embedded in a growing framework of basic and clinically oriented research labs on a vibrant medical school campus.

All our postdocs also are part of our Section's Postdoc program that continues to successfully mentor members to obtain F- and K-level funding, as well as faculty and industry positions. Come join us at the base of the Rocky Mountains!
Recruiting at All Levels
UAB Heersink School of Medicine
The Saxena Lab is moving this month to a rapidly growing and highly collaborative scientific environment in the Cell, Developmental, & Integrative Biology Dept. at UAB Heersink School of Medicine! We're excited to work with outstanding colleagues and impressive new resources as we expand three interconnected project areas: neurogenesis in the context of development, cancer, and Alzheimer's disease.

We're recruiting postdocs, staff scientists, & students across all projects. Please reach out to any lab member attending ZDMS for more info: Lynne Nacke (Poster P119), Debangana Chakravorty (Cancer RIG Short Talk & Poster P017), Xinghang Jiang (Cardiac and Musculoskeletal Session Talk O22), and Ankur Saxena (gets to wander around aimlessly instead of presenting).

Postdoctoral fellow
Duke University School of Medicine
Postdoctoral fellow position working on mycobacterial pathogenesis and host susceptibility in the Tobin lab at Duke
Medical College of Wisconsin
The Lam lab ( in the Neuroscience Research Center at the Medical College of Wisconsin is seeking a postdoctoral fellow interested in immunity, neuroimmunology and neuroscience research to join the team.
The lab primarily utilizes zebrafish and Danionella cerebrum as model systems to study how the activity of immune cells are regulated and how their activity regulates development, wound repair, regeneration, disease pathogenesis and aging in vivo. A variety of approaches such as in vivo confocal live imaging, genetic manipulation, cellular and molecular biology, optogenetics, and photopharmacological techniques are employed in the lab.
The postdoctoral appointee has the unique opportunity to take part in the development of a novel vertebrate model, Danionella cerebrum, for immune related research and establish a niche for their research program if they wish to pursue.

Assistant professor
University of Kentucky
The Department of Biology in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, Kentucky seeks to fill a tenure-eligible faculty position at the Assistant Professor level in Neuroscience. This is a 9-month position in the regular title series with an anticipated start date of August 1, 2024. The Department of Biology is a highly collaborative environment with areas of focus in circadian rhythms and sleep, neuroendocrinology, sensory biology and regeneration and developmental biology. Additional strength areas include evolutionary biology, genetics and genomics, and behavioral ecology. The Department’s faculty and trainees use a diverse array of biological model systems (e.g., humans, rodents, birds, invertebrates, salamanders, lampreys, zebrafish, microbes, planaria, snakes, and plants) and mathematical and computational tools. Responsibilities for the successful candidates include (1) establishment of an independent research program that is supported by awards from extramural agencies; (2) contribution to the teaching mission of the undergraduate program; (3) teaching and mentoring for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows; and (4) service for the department, university, and profession. Competitive start-up funds and laboratory space will be provided. A Ph.D. in Neuroscience or equivalent degree with postdoctoral experience (minimum 6 months) demonstrating excellence in their field is required. Evidence of an ability to obtain extramural grant support and/or some teaching experience is encouraged.

Interested applicants should apply online at:

Questions about this search should be addressed to Dr. Dave Weisrock, Chair, Department of Biology, University of Kentucky (

Review of applications will begin on October 15th, 2023 and will continue until the position is filled.
