Postdoctoral Fellow – Neural Circuit Development – Anatomy and Genomics
The Kim Lab at Molecular, Cell, and Developmental Biology Department, the University of California, Santa Cruz is seeking highly motivated and talented postdoctoral research fellows with a Ph.D. degree to join our new and innovative research group.
The University of California, Santa Cruz is one of 10 universities within the prestigious University of California system. MCD department has top-tier neuroscience and molecular biology labs and UCSC with its genomics institute is an undisputed leader in genomics and bioinformatics. Santa Cruz is a wonderful small progressive town on the central coast of sunny California, nestled into mountains that teem with giant redwood trees, approximately 35 minutes to San Jose/Silicon Valley, or 1 hour and a half to San Francisco Bay.
The Kim Laboratory aims to investigate connectivity, development, genetic identity, and function of neural circuits using the mouse cerebral cortex as a model system. Our ultimate goal is to understand the fundamental principle of neural connectivity and its functions in animal’s perception and behavior. We address our questions using novel neural circuit tracing systems with next-generation trans-synaptic viral tracers, mouse genetics, single-cell genome-wide sequencing, and in vivo imaging. My lab is determined to offer excellent research opportunities to advance your scientific career, strong academic interactions and collaborations across the neuroscience and other biology laboratories at UCSC, and more. For additional information, please refer to the following webpage: http://www.ejkimlab.com/
We prefer, but not limited to, candidates with expertise in the following areas: (neuro)developmental biology with genomics experiences, gene regulations, mouse surgery and handling related to neural circuit tracing and manipulations, electrophysiology, in vivo imaging, and molecular and cellular neuroscience. Above all, outstanding applicants with strong quantitative skills are strongly encouraged to apply. Interested individuals should submit an application with a curriculum vitae, a brief cover letter including research interests, and the contact information of three individuals who will provide letters of reference to:
