Open call for a postdoc position in Thomas Kim's Lab

Group Leader Thomas Kim is inviting applications for a 3 year full time position as postdoc in his lab. Application deadline is 15 August.

As a Group Leader at DANDRITE Thomas Kim’s laboratory’s core focus is on deciphering the molecular mechanisms and functions of diverse cell states and types in the context of neurodevelopment and neurodegeneration. We strive to generate hypotheses utilizing data science that can be experimentally tested in the lab.

  • The lab's neurodegeneration project aims to investigate the molecular mechanisms that regulate various microglial states in neurodegenerative diseases and assess the potential of targeting these populations as a therapeutic strategy.
  • The lab's neurodevelopment project is focused on understanding the specification of the hypothalamus, which plays a vital role in regulating innate behaviors and physiological homeostasis. To accomplish this, we will employ multi-omic methods and utilize in vitro and in vivo functional genomic approaches.
