Current Openings

We are looking for looking for a motivated lab manager to join our lab in 2024. If interested, please apply here.

Lab Manager

A full-time Research Specialist position as a lab manager for the Dunn Lab is available at the University of California, San Francisco (Mission Bay Campus), Department of Ophthalmology. The goal of the Dunn lab is to understand how visual information is parsed and processed in the retina and to determine how this information is perturbed in disease. The area of specialization entails colony maintenance, genotyping, experimental support, lab organization and management and provide technical assistance in research experiments. The candidate will handle mice and be familiar with or eager to learn molecular biology, cell biology, and imaging techniques. The Specialist will work closely with the principal investigator and other members of the laboratory and is expected to be familiar with a given procedure but must be highly motivated, willing to learn, and very attentive to details to benefit from instruction. The expectation is for the candidate to achieve independence in regular activities and maintain detailed records. Knowledge of programming in any language is a plus.


We are looking for motivated postdoctoral fellows and graduate students interested in joining our lab.

What: A postdoctoral position in the Department of Ophthalmology at UCSF.

Who: We are looking for someone with:

  • Ph.D. in neuroscience, biology, engineering, physics, or a related discipline.
