The Department of Developmental Biology at Washington University School of Medicine invites applications for a Research Laboratory Manager for the Zebrafish Facility. Washington University in St. Louis is home to one of the largest and most modern zebrafish facilities in the world with robotic feeding and cleaning systems. This facility allows for large-scale, collaborative projects that would not be possible for individual investigators, helping scientists understand human development and disease, from birth defects and cancer to muscle and nerve disorders. The facility has almost 7,000 tanks, including a 2,000-tank nursery. The facility also has the capabilities for obtaining, viewing, and manipulating fish embryos.
We are seeking an outstanding applicant to join at the level of Research Laboratory Manager to oversee and manage the operations and the personnel of the Zebrafish Facility. The position is responsible for the smooth operation of the state-of-the art automated aquatic fish feeding system (Tritones), RO water supply system, zebrafish water recirculation systems, rotifer cultures, fish health, and bio-filtration system as well as other laboratory equipment. The applicant is expected to have a Master’s degree with 5 years’ experience in a laboratory setting or an equivalent combination of education and experience equaling 12 years. Knowledge of standard laboratory policies, procedures and equipment regarding the maintenance of zebrafish and aquatic equipment is expected. Experience with Tecniplast zebrafish systems is a plus. In addition, the candidate should have excellent communication, interpersonal and writing skills. The successful candidate will report to the head of the Department of Developmental Biology.
