Description:

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 Kim Laboratory aims to investigate connectivity, development, genetic identity, and function of neural circuits using 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 including recent publications, 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, mouse surgery and handling related to neural circuit tracing and manipulations, 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 Dr. Euiseok Kim (ekim62@ucsc.edu).
