Head of Zebrafish Facility

The Max Planck Institute for Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, 
Dresden, seeks a  staff scientist as the head of the central 
zebrafish facility. The position is open now. The institute is 
currently built up mostly in Heidelberg and is scheduled to move to 
Dresden at the beginning of next year. There are currently three 
zebrafish groups in the institute, headed by Michael Brand, Carl-
Philipp Heisenberg, Wieland Huttner, respectively. The work of the 
zebrafish groups will be embedded in a highly active molecular cell 
biology and genetics environment at the MPI and at the 
surrounding institutes in Dresden. In the end, the MPI will consist 
of up to 400 people working in about 25 groups; further information 
on the institute and the groups working there is available under 
http://www.mpi-cbg.de/. Informal inquiries can also be directed to 
Michael Brand (brand at sun0.urz.uni-heidelberg.de), e.g. at the 
upcoming zebrafish meeting in CSH.  

The facility will maintain and make available to the zebrafish groups 
in the Institute wild-type and mutant zebrafish stocks, frozen 
sperm, and reagents. In collaboration with the research groups, the 
head of the facility and it's staff will conduct genetic screens and 
other genetic experiments, and will participate in developing new 
zebrafish methodology. The facility itself is a state-of-the art large-
scale aquarium system with currently 4000 tanks and a possibility 
for expansion. Candidates should have an advanced degree and/or 
training in biology (e.g. PhD), experience with embryology and 
genetics (preferably zebrafish), knowledge of basic molecular 
biology techniques, and strong organizational and management 
skills. Salary according to german BAT scale (attractive!!), 
comensurate with experience.
