A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Philippe Soriano to study FGF and PDGF regulated craniofacial morphogenesis in the mouse embryo. Possible projects focus on intracellular signaling pathways using receptor point mutant mice and proteomics; the impact of ERK1/2 and PI3K signaling dynamics on morphogenetic movements; or differential signaling mechanisms underlying ligand specific responses. A strong background in cell signaling or developmental biology is desired. Expertise in molecular/cell/systems biology, imaging technology, or mouse genetics are 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 within the city. In addition, New York City offers unequaled cultural and recreational opportunities.
Creative, interactive but independent, and highly motivated applicants 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
