Job Function:


Technical Division:

Microscopy and Optical Coherence Tomography (BM)

Years of Experience:


The Goodhill lab at Washington University in St Louis ( is looking for a postdoc scientist for an NIH-funded project to develop novel microscopy methods for whole-brain calcium imaging in freely-behaving zebrafish. This is a collaboration with Oliver Cossairt at Northwestern University.

The lab focuses on the computational principles underlying the development of neural circuits and behavior. The goal of this project is to construct light-field imaging techniques to record the activity of ~100,000 neurons in the larval zebrafish brain during unconstrained hunting behavior (for more details see We are looking for someone with experience in building new optical imaging technologies to work with others in the lab from a diverse array of backgrounds including biology, mathematics, physics and engineering.

Washington University in St Louis is ranked in the top 10 institutions globally for Neuroscience and Behavior, and offers an outstanding intellectual environment for neuroscience research. In 2023 the Goodhill lab will move along with over 100 other labs into Washington University’s new start-of-the-art 600,000 sq ft Neuroscience Research Building ( For more information about St Louis see
