The Sokol laboratory at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, is looking for a motivated candidate to join their research group as a research fellow in the spring/summer of 2021.
The laboratory studies how Wnt and FGF signaling pathways control cell lineage during vertebrate gastrulation and neurulation. They are also interested in the regulation of cell polarity and cell movements during neural tissue development by physical forces. A successful candidate will use live cell imaging and genomic/proteomic approaches to study how signaling molecules and mechanical forces regulate neural development in early Xenopus embryos and mammalian progenitor cells.
Preference will be given to recent graduates with strong background in cell biology, biochemistry or genomics/bioinformatics. Salary will be commensurate with experience. Potential candidates may send their CV, a short description of relevant expertise and research interests, list of publications and the names of three references to Dr. Sergei Sokol (firstname.lastname@example.org).
