Funded postdoc: zebrafish, neurodevelopmental disorders, and/or protein engineering

The Thyme lab (https://www.thymelab.org/) uses zebrafish as a model system to understand the genetic mechanisms underlying psychiatric and neurodevelopmental disease.

We also employ protein engineering techniques to build tools to assist with our zebrafish studies.

Experiments will potentially utilize the following techniques, depending on the project: molecular biology (PCR, cloning), zebrafish genome-editing, zebrafish line maintenance, antibody staining, RNA in situ analysis, high-resolution imaging, biochemistry (protein purification), bacterial directed evolution, high-throughput larval behavior, drug screens, and transcriptomics (bulk and single-cell RNA-seq).

Analysis of most data from the lab requires cluster computing, and postdocs will be trained in this area as well as in python scripting or other languages if there is an interest or need.
