Job Description

Research associate to develop proteomic and cell biological approaches to signaling. 

A postdoctoral position is available in the Sokol laboratory in the Department of Cell, Developmental and Regenerative Biology, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York.  Our group studies how Wnt signaling pathways branch out to control cell lineage and cell movements during vertebrate gastrulation and neural tissue development.  To reach our goals we use live cell imaging, genome editing and proximity biotinylation approaches to identify protein-protein interactions mediating cell signaling in vivo in early vertebrate embryos and  mammalian progenitor cells. We are also interested to learn how key cellular structures, such as the centrosome and cilia, regulate apicobasal and planar cell polarity and asymmetric cell divisions in embryonic ectoderm during neurogenesis, ciliated cell differentiation and neural crest formation. See the description of our interests at ( or

Preference will be given to highly motivated and interactive applicants with strong background in cell biology and biochemistry, who published a first-author paper as a result of their graduate work.  Interested candidates may send their CV, list of publications and the names of three references to Dr. Sergei Sokol  (
