Kim lab at Penn State University College of Medicine is looking for a highly motivated postdoc who is willing to embrace new approaches for important questions in neuroscience.
We have multiple NIH funded projects to establish cellular architecture maps of mammalian brains using mice as an animal model. Three main lines of research include 1) the brain-wide organization of cerebrovascular network and associated cell types in the neurodegeneration context, 2) anatomical and functional investigation of the oxytocin system in the context of social behavior and neurodevelopment, and 3) creating 3D atlases for developing mouse brains. We utilize high resolution 3D imaging tools (e.g., light sheet fluorescent microscopy), and computational approaches to examine cellular resolution details in the whole mouse brain. Moreover, we use systems neuroscience approaches (e.g., miniscope neural recording) to examine oxytocin circuit specific function in the brain.
Both data and experimental scientists with PhD or equivalent degree are encouraged to apply for the position. Experience in computer programming (e.g., Matlab, Python) and/or advanced microscopy tools is not required but plus. More details of the lab including publications can be found in the lab web site (https://kimlab.io/). A highly qualified candidate with sufficient experience and track record can also be hired at a faculty level scientist position.
We aim to build a strong research team with complimentary expertise. Furthermore, we have several on-going collaborations with labs across the world that bring different expertise, which provide ample opportunities to work with leading experts in different field of neuroscience.
Penn State College of Medicine is located in Hershey, PA that is a relatively small town with affordable living expense with easy access to neighboring major cities (e.g., Philadelphia).
Eligible candidates should send a CV and a brief statement of research and career plan to Dr. Kim at email@example.com
