Assistant/Associate Professor
(Vanderbilt University)

Vanderbilt University has recently committed substantial resources 
toward expanding interdisciplinary efforts utilizing zebrafish to 
address significant problems in biology. This expansion includes 
construction of a large, state-of-the-art aquatic facility, development 
of a central genomics facility and substantial investments in other 
facilities for performing genetic manipulation and phenotype 
analysis in zebrafish.  We are now seeking candidates to fill faculty 
positions at either the Assistant or Associate Professor levels in 
several University departments including Biological Sciences, 
Pharmacology, Cell and Developmental Biology, Medicine and 
Pediatrics. Opportunities for affiliations with one or more NIH-
funded research centers also exist. Successful candidates will be 
provided laboratory space and generous start-up funds to initiate 
their independent research programs in the collegial and 
collaborative scientific environment of Vanderbilt University.  

Candidates should have Ph.D., M.D./Ph.D. or M.D. degrees and 
significant prior research experience. We are especially interested 
in candidates using zebrafish to 1) investigate molecular genetic 
mechanisms of organogenesis, especially that of cardiovascular, 
hematopoietic, gastrointestinal, renal and central nervous systems, 
2) investigate mechanisms of disease, 3) develop novel or high 
throughput genetic screening methods and 4) develop methods of 
computational genomics.  

Interested candidates should submit a current C.V., summary of 
research experience and future plans, and names and addresses of 
three references to:
