Postdoc Associate to study embryonic signaling, cell polarity and morphogenesis, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York

Posted 5/6/2021

The Sokol laboratory at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, is looking for a motivated candidate to join our group as a research fellow in the summer of 2021. Our laboratory is in the Department of Cell, Developmental and Regenerative Biology, with a number of groups with highly collaborative, developmental and stem cell biology program. Besides high-quality research core facilities, career guidance and professional development training are provided for postdoctoral fellows.

Our group studies how Wnt and FGF embryonic pathways control cell lineage during vertebrate gastrulation and neurulation.  We are also interested in the regulation of cell polarity and cell movements during neural tissue development. 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.  See the description of our interests at

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 (
