Description & Details:

Research in the Kenney Lab focuses on understanding the neural and molecular basis of individual differences in behavior. Using adult zebrafish, 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 biology. 


  • Ph.D. in neuroscience, molecular biology, cell/developmental biology, pharmacology, or related fields.
  • Experience in molecular biology required.
  • Experience with embryo injections preferred.
  • Desire to learn coding in R or Python preferred, but not required.
