Faculty Positions

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 a 
collegial and collaborative scientific environment.  

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:
