Mount Sinai School of Medicine's Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Bone Disease is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow to work in the laboratory of Dr. Christoph Buettner.

The laboratory is also interested in identifying the role of hypothalamic control of hepatic lipid and glucose metabolism and to dissect the role that parenchymal and non parenchymal cells play in the control.
