The Jacobo Group is building an interdisciplinary team of researchers with experience in biology, physics, computer science, and microscopy. We are looking for a PhD level scientist to join us and be an integral part of this effort. Our group wants to study, at a quantitative level, how cell-cell communication leads to the formation of organs in a self-organizing process. To do so we will use zebrafish as a model system and combine cutting-edge live microscopy, gene editing techniques, deep-learning-based data analysis, and mathematical modeling. To this aim, we are looking for a candidate with experience in zebrafish transgenesis.
The candidate will work independently to research, design, and perform experiments related to their area of research within the larger project goals
They will provide regular internal presentations to summarize their work and actively contribute ideas related to their work and the work of others in the group
The successful candidates will also author manuscripts related to their research advances and present their research at relevant external conferences and meetings
Candidates will also have opportunities to partner with and mentor junior scientists
About the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub
The Chan Zuckerberg Biohub (https://www.czbiohub.org) is a one-of-a-kind independent nonprofit research institute that brings together three powerhouse universities—Stanford, UC Berkeley, and UC San Francisco—into a single collaborative technology and discovery engine.

We are guided by our values of scholarly excellence; disruptive innovation; hands-on engineering/hacking/building; partnership and collaboration; open communication and respect; inclusiveness; and opportunity for all.
What We Provide
Resources to disrupt and innovate at the frontiers of our knowledge of biology and disease
A collegial and collaborative environment consisting of diverse expertise
Existing collaborations within CZ Biohub: Technology Platforms (Bioengineering, Computational Microscopy, Data Science, Genomic Sequencing, Mass Spectrometry/Proteomics), Infectious Diseases, and Quantitative Cell Science
Access to collaborators, resources, and facilities at our three partner universities (Stanford, UC Berkeley, and UC San Francisco) and at partner organizations in the Bay Area and beyond
Competitive compensation and benefits commensurate with the experience
Ph.D. in Biology, Physics, or related field
Experience in zebrafish work, including zebrafish transgenesis
Must be a dedicated team player who can also work independently
Nice to have –
Experience generating knock-ins using CRISPR is desired but not required
Experience with live imaging of zebrafish is desired but not required
Chan Zuckerberg Biohub requires all employees, contractors, and interns, regardless of work location or type of role, to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination, including a booster vaccine dose, if eligible, by their start date. Those who are unable to get vaccinated or obtain a booster dose because of a disability, or who choose not to be vaccinated due to a sincerely held religious belief, practice, or observance must have an approved exception prior to their start date.
