Postdoc position in zebrafish genetics and imaging

Posted by , on 11 February 2019

Closing Date: 15 March 2021

We seek an outstanding postdoctoral candidate to join the Yeh Laboratory at Texas A&M University in College Station (  Our group uses interdisciplinary and quantitative approaches to study the molecular and cellular basis of embryonic development, with specific focus on brain development.  In this context, we are interested in understanding how complex multi-enhancer regulatory landscapes interact with gene promoters through the application of super-resolution, live cell imaging.  A particular strength of the lab is the development of custom, state-of-the-art microscopy systems for applications in the life sciences.


The candidate will be independent, creative, motivated, and able to work collaboratively with a group of researchers with expertise in microscopy, physics, and developmental biology.  A PhD in the biological sciences (or related fields) with at least 3 years of laboratory research experience in zebrafish developmental biology is required.  Experience with quantitative imaging, in addition to experience in zebrafish development, will be considered positively, but is not required.


This is a renewable, two-year position with full benefits, based upon good performance of the candidate and availability of funds.  Salary will be competitive and dependent on the level of experience of the candidate.  Applications submitted before March 8, 2019, will receive full consideration, but the position will remain open until filled.


Applicants should provide,

  • cover letter describing research interests and career goals,
  • CV,
  • letters of recommendation from at least two references.


Submit applications to Alvin Yeh,
