The Sokol group at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, is looking for a motivated candidate to join our laboratory as a postdoctoral scientist for the analysis of inductive signaling in mesonephric and metanephric kidneys. A successful candidate will use systems biology approaches (genomics and transcriptomics) in frog and mouse embryos to study heterogeneity of cell types and evolutionary aspects of signaling in the developing kidney.

Our group studies signaling pathways that control various aspects vertebrate development. See description of our interests at The laboratory is in the Department of Cell, Developmental and Regenerative Biology, with a number of labs 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.

Preference will be given to recent Ph.D. graduates with strong background in embryology and genomics/bioinformatics.  Salary will be commensurate with experience.
