The College of Life and Environmental Sciences are looking to recruit either a Postdoctoral Research Associate or Fellow on a full time and fixed term basis. This post is available from the 1st of April 2021 up to the 31st of March 2024 in the College of Life and Environmental Sciences.
About the role
The zebrafish is used widely as a model for understanding biological processes in development and for studying various human diseases. As a result, each year millions of embryos and larvae are used in laboratories across the globe, many of which undergo anaesthesia. Despite this, very little information is available to guide appropriate anaesthetic choice, and even less information is available on analgesics (pain relievers).
Applications are particularly encouraged from candidates with experience in one or more of the following: working with transgenic zebrafish embryos and larvae, advanced fluorescence imaging and image analysis, electrophysiology, fish behavioural studies or applied neurobiology/neuropharmacology.
