Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Gut Peptides

The Drucker laboratory is located in the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute (LTRI), Mount Sinai Hospital, in downtown Toronto immediately adjacent to the downtown University of Toronto campus. 

An opportunity exists for postdoctoral research fellowship studied in the broad area of glucagon-like peptides, with a potential focus on mechanisms of action in 1) the immune system 2) gut-brain communication, and 3) neurodegenerative disorders. Potential projects encompass GLP-1, GLP-2 and GIP. Candidates must have a recent PhD degree (within last 3 years) and direct experience with mouse physiology. Initial expressions of interest, including a 1 page summary of past research experience and an updated CV, can be sent to

The laboratory carries out studies of the physiology of gut peptides, encompassing the mechanisms controlling their bioactivty, with a focus on the glucagon-like peptides and their receptors. An updated summary of recent Research from the Drucker Laboratory is maintained on an ongoing basis, as is a list of recent Drucker lab publications
