Want to become a behavioral geneticist? Look here for opportunities!
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 PhD or Postdoc position in Statistical Genetics/ Bioinformatics. Research at the department of Complex Trait Genetics focuses on identifying the genetic and environmental causes of individual differences in human traits related to behavior, cognition and mental and physical health. We integrate knowledge from different fields (biology, genetics, neuroimaging, bioinformatics) and use and develop statistical tools to analyze genome-wide data sets for complex traits. If you love analyzing genetic data and working with large data files find via this link more information.
