A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Philippe Soriano to study craniofacial morphogenesis regulated by FGFs and PDGFs in the mouse embryo. We are focusing on the role of intracellular signaling pathways using receptor point mutants and proteomics, the impact of ERK1/2 and PI3K signaling dynamics on morphogenetic movements, and differential signaling mechanisms underlying ligand specific responses. A strong background in developmental biology is desired; expertise in molecular/cell/systems biology, cell signaling, imaging technology, or mouse genetics are all valuable but not required.
For more information, please visit our laboratory website at labs.icahn.mssm.edu/sorianolab. We benefit from a highly interactive scientific environment in the Department of Cell, Developmental and Regenerative Biology at Mt. Sinai (www.mssm.edu/drb), and an outstanding developmental biology community in within the city. In addition, New York City offers unequaled cultural and recreational opportunities.
Creative, interactive but independent, and highly motivated applicants, with one or more first-author papers as a result of their graduate work, are in particular invited to apply. Please send a letter of application including a brief description of previous research experience and interests, a CV, and the name and contact information of three references to Philippe Soriano at firstname.lastname@example.org.
