The Social Science Division at New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) invites applications for full time faculty positions in New York University Abu Dhabi from scholars working at the intersection of genetics and social sciences.
This tenure/tenure-track appointment is open rank. We will consider applicants from across social science or social science related disciplines (e.g. sociology, economics, political science, psychology, biological anthropology, psychology and human genetics) with active and cutting-edge research agendas that include, but are not limited to, population genetics and social identity, genetics and human behaviour, critical and historical approaches to the use of genetics in social science and public policy, and bioethics in relation to human genetics.
The Vanderbilt Music Cognition Lab is recruiting a genetics-focused postdoctoral fellow. The postdoc will develop and carry out grant-funded studies focused on the genetic basis of human rhythm traits and exploring potentially shared architecture with other communication traits (like language), health traits, and related neural endophenotypes.
The Center for Healthy Minds is seeking a Scientific Director.
The Scientific Director plays a critical role on the Senior Leadership Team at the Center for Healthy Minds. This Director works closely with the Founder to set strategy and scientific direction for the Center. The Director manages the execution of this strategy to ensure the Center achieves the goals of the strategic plan. The Director constantly refines their deep understanding of the field to ensure the Center remains at the forefront of science. The Director uses this deep understanding to mentor staff on the current science as well as on where the field is headed. The Director is intimately involved in ongoing analysis of a broad range of data including different modalities of neuroimaging, and other biological and behavioral data. The Director also plays a key role in scientific publication, envisioning publication strategy, parsing complex research into publishable units and ensuring the highest levels of scientific rigor.
University of Wisconsin-Madison, department of Center for Healthy Minds (CHM) is seeking a postdoctoral scholar to analyze and publish on data from the Midlife in the US (MIDUS; http://midus.wisc.edu/) national longitudinal study.
This is an NIA-supported study on aging explicitly focused on all of the adult years, including transitions from young adulthood to midlife, and from midlife into old age with multiple longitudinal timepoints covering over 20 years. This is an opportunity to become part of a scientific community that is actively engaged with MIDUS and play a key role in analyzing both extant and new neuroimaging data in relation to sociodemographic, behavioral, cognitive, daily diary, and biomarker data.
The Department of Biobehavioral Health (https://hhd.psu.edu/bbh) in the College of Health and Human Development (https://hhd.psu.edu) at The Pennsylvania State University invites applications for an open rank, tenured/tenure track addiction research faculty member whose research encompasses reducing disparities, including health, education, racial/ethnic and socioeconomic disparities, that are tied to addiction.
We seek a colleague who has an interdisciplinary research program that integrates behavioral and biological approaches to examine addiction in vulnerable populations, research expertise with populations who are disproportionately at risk for disparities, and research that illuminates how addiction may contribute to disparities in biobehavioral health-relevant processes and/or outcomes.
The Institute of Behavioral Science and the Institute for Behavioral Genetics have a developed an innovative training program at the intersection of Demography and Genetics research that is funded by a T32 training grant from NIA (T32AG052371). We are currently searching for a post-doctoral position that will begin September 1, 2019. The candidate will work with faculty in the IBS/IBG training program at the intersection of demographic and genetic research and will train in methods and substance in both areas. It is a one-year position at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
The Department of Psychology at Arizona State University invites applications for a full-time, Assistant/Associate Professor, tenured/tenure-track position to begin Fall 2019 in the area of behavior genetics.
Essential qualifications include a doctoral degree in Psychology or other discipline relevant to the position (e.g., neuroscience, behavior genetics) by the start date, and a strong record of research productivity and teaching effectiveness relative to the candidate’s level of experience. We are interested in candidates who examine human or animal genetics or epigenetics together with other biological, behavioral, social and/or cultural levels of analysis.
The 2019 2019 International Behavioral Genetics Workshop will be held in Boulder, Colorado, March 4th– 8th, 2019, with John Hewitt and Matt Keller as Local Hosts, and Benjamin Neale, Broad Institute and Massachusetts General Hospital, and David Evans, Diamantina Institute, University of Queensland, as co-Directors. This advanced course is intended for those who are already familiar with the statistical and genetic principles for studying human complex traits and have some familiarity with programming in R. The course will focus on statistical methods for analyzing genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and genome sequence data. Hands-on analysis will be an integral part of the course.
