Postdoctoral Position: Wayne Sate Univeristy

Organization: Wayne State University
Department of Biological Studies
The Kenney Lab
Date Posted: 3/23/2022
City: Detroit 
State: Michigan
Primary Category: Research
Type of Position: Postdoctoral Position

Description & Details:

Research in the Kenney Lab focuses on understanding the neural and molecular basis of individual differences in behavior. Using zebrafish as a model, we map behaviorally related whole-brain neural activity by combining computational behavioral assessment with tissue clearing, light-sheet microscopy, and our recently published adult zebrafish brain atlas ( The molecular basis of individual differences are probed using pharmacology and molecular genetics. This position has the possibility to transition to a research scientist/associate position.


  • Ph.D. in neuroscience, molecular biology, cell/developmental biology, pharmacology, or related fields.
  • Experience in molecular genetics and cloning required.
  • Experience with generating genetically modified zebrafish preferred, but not required.
  • Experience (or desire) to learn coding in R or Python preferred, but not required.
  • Self-motivated and able to independently execute and troubleshoot research projects.
  • Collegial and works well with others.
