Postdoctoral position to study Wnt signaling and embryonic cell polarity.
An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in the Sergei Sokol laboratory in the Department of Cell, Developmental and Regenerative Biology, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, to study Wnt signaling, the centrosome/cilia and cell polarity in Xenopus and zebrafish embryos, and mammalian stem/progenitor cells. Genome editing and cell imaging analysis will be utilized to study cell polarization and migration during neural tube closure and the links between cell polarity and cell fate specification in the skin and the neural crest. See the description of our interests at http://research.mssm.edu/sokol/Sokol_lab/ .
Preference will be given to highly motivated applicants with strong background in molecular and cellular biology, who published a first-author paper as a result of their graduate work. Interested candidates may send their CV, list of publications and three references to Dr. Sergei Sokol (firstname.lastname@example.org).
