WELCOME TO THIS YEAR’S BGA ANNUAL MEETING THAT WILL TAKE PLACE IN BOSTON, June 20-23, WITH LOCAL HOST BEN NEALE!
Highlights of the program are keynotes by Professors Hill Goldsmith, Mark Daly, Elise Robinson, and Bill Iacono. You can find the total program here: http://programme.exordo.com/bga18/
Registration is still open! More information can be found here.
We are inviting applications for two Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in genetic epidemiology, statistical genetics or related fields with an interest in cardiometabolic traits and diseases.
The Virginia Institute for Psychiatric and Behavioral Genetics (VIPBG; vipbg.vcu.edu) is pleased to invite applications for postdoctoral training with a focus on mental health. The Institute offers a rich interdisciplinary training environment. Institute faculty include leaders in the fields of behavioral and psychiatric genetics and represent a wide range of scientific backgrounds from molecular and statistical genetics to epidemiology, psychology, psychiatry.
We are looking for bright, motivated postdoctoral applicants with experience in programming, statistics, genetics and/or behavioral sciences to help us develop methods to elucidate the genetic architecture of complex traits using genome-wide data. This NIH funded work is being conducted at the Institute for Behavioral Genetics (IBG), University of Colorado, Boulder (Matthew Keller, Luke Evans, & Matt Jones) in collaboration with colleagues at the University of Queensland, Australia (Peter Visscher & Jian Yang).
Dear members, due to a change in the membership system some of you received confusing emails. Please read the announcement below:
BGA has moved to a new membership and conference management system, 123Signup, which does not use PayPal for payments. Therefore, you received an email that the treasurer cancelled any future PayPal payments. This, in order to prevent double-billing in the future.
To be clear: Your BGA membership has NOT been cancelled and it IS ACTIVE and fully paid! In addition, we would request that you NOT re-enroll via PayPal!
Your memberships were automatically transferred to the new system. One-month before each membership expires, you will start receiving messages from BGA asking that you renew your membership through 123Signup. At that time, you will be able to choose between annual renewal or automatic renewal in the new system.
There is actually nothing you need to do at this time. You may update your profile, request a printed copy of the journal Behavior Genetics, and register for the upcoming conference at any time using 123Signup.
We apologize for the confusion! BGA definitely values your membership and I appreciate your patience as we transition to this new membership system!
Best Wishes, Julie Grant, BGA Treasurer and Membership Committee Chair
FIMM is currently seeking up to 6 Postdoctoral Researchers in Statistical and/or Translational Genomics for the new Centre of Excellence in Complex Disease Genetics for a fixed-term of two years with a possibility of extension for a third year. Find more details HERE.
Postdoctoral Fellow in Affective, Cognitive, and Aging Neuroscience
Degree and area of specialization:
Ph.D. in Neuroscience or Psychology
Experience in neuroimaging research in emotion, cognition, and/or aging preferred.
We welcome applications for a postdoctoral position in developmental cognitive neuroscience in the research group headed by Dr. Terje Falck-Ytter, Center of Neurodevelopmental Disorders at Karolinska Institutet.
The Behavioral Genetics of Addiction Laboratory (PI information: http://psychology.emory.edu/home/people/faculty/palmer-rohan.html) located in the Department of Psychology at Emory University, is looking for self-motivated and enthusiastic Postdoctoral Fellows to work on statistical genetics and epidemiological studies of substance use, psychopathology, and their relation to cognitive functioning.
We mainly focus on whole genome and systems-based genetic studies that integrate multi-omics data (DNA, RNA, microRNA, Methylation, Proteomics data) into our models predicting complex traits and diseases. We also work on longitudinal studies that examine the development of addictive behaviors in the context of personality and cognitive differences, as well as, a number of familial and individual-level demographic characteristics.
2018 Applications open for Tinbergen Institute Summer School
Introduction in Genome-Wide Data Analysis | July 23-27, 2018
Application Deadline: June 19, 2018
TINBERGEN INSTITUTE | VU AMSTERDAM | ERASMUS UNIVERSITY ROTTERDAM
Tinbergen Institute, VU Amsterdam, and Erasmus University Rotterdam offer a unique one-week summer school in genome-wide data analysis in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
Short subject description
The goal of the summer school is to introduce researchers from various fields to key concepts, state-of-the-art methods, and computer tools in statistical genetics that can be applied in the social and medical sciences.
The Complex Trait Genetics lab (www.ctglab.nl) at the Center for Neurogenomics and Cognitive Research in Amsterdam (see www.cncr.nl) is seeking applicants for a Postdoc position in Neuropsychiatric Genetics/Bioinformatics.
