NHLBI T32 POST-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP POSITIONS
The Section on Statistical Genetics in the Department of Biostatistics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham is accepting applications from statistical and other cardiovascular scientists for postdoctoral positions in Statistical Genetics pertaining to Heart, Lung, and Blood phenotypes. Starting dates are open and flexible. Appointments will be for two years, with the possibility of an extension for another year depending on productivity. Salary is commensurate with qualifications, but in all cases equals or exceeds the minimum NIH post-doctoral stipend. Applicants with a strong background in statistics, statistical genetics, genetic epidemiology or cardiovascular disease research are given preference.
Special Issue of Behavior Genetics on Gene by Environment Interplay in Adulthood, edited by Nancy L. Pedersen and Deborah Finkel
Changes in the relative contribution of genetic and environmental factors to functioning in various domains over the course of adulthood suggest that revisiting the concept of GE interplay in middle and late adulthood may increase our understanding of the processes of aging and provide fertile ground for the development of intervention strategies. Patterns of increasing variance suggest emergent gene-environment interactions. In addition to GxE interactions, correlative associations may arise among genes and environments.
