The Department of Developmental Biology at Washington University School of Medicine invites applications for a Research Laboratory Supervisor 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 and is used by more than 20 laboratories. The facility also has extensive capabilities for obtaining, viewing, and manipulating fish embryos.

We are seeking an outstanding applicant to join at the level of Research Laboratory Supervisor to oversee and manage the operations and the personnel of the Zebrafish Facility. The Supervisor 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 bachelors degree with 3 years experience in an aquatics or aquaculture setting or an equivalent combination of education and experience equaling 7 years. Applicants with primary responsibility for an aquatics system for one or multiple users are strongly encouraged to apply. Knowledge of standard 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 managerial skills. The successful candidate will report to the head of the Department of Developmental Biology and the Scientific Directors of the Fish Facility.
