OBSSR invites you to attend the 12th NIH Matilda White Riley Behavioral and Social Sciences Honors on Thursday, June 6, 2019, from 8:30 am to 12 noon on NIH’s main campus (Wilson Hall, building 1). Wilson Hall has limited capacity. This event will not be videocast. Please register to attend in person.
A Postdoctoral Fellowship is available at the PROMENTA Research Center, Department of Psychology, University of Oslo. The Postdoctoral fellow will collaborate with colleagues at PROMENTA to examine how biological markers, genetic risks and early adversity influence developmental psychopathology in childhood and adolescence.
The Department of Psychology at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Personality Psychology. The candidate will be afforded the opportunity to work with any of the personality-oriented researchers at the university, including Jaime Derringer, Daniel Briley, Chris Fraley, and Brent Roberts. The postdoc will also teach one Psychology of Personality course per semester.
American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) is holding their 2019 Annual Meeting. Specifically, an abstract topic “Complex Traits and Polygenic Disorders” closely relates to the work BGA members are doing.
The abstract submission site closes June 6, 2019 at 8 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time. Any questions about the process? Contact email@example.com. We’re also happy to provide a video and blog with tips and tricks for abstract submissions.
We are seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Center for Behavior Genetics of Aging in the University of California, San Diego Department of Psychiatry. If interested, contact Drs. Matthew Panizzon at firstname.lastname@example.org or William Kremen at email@example.com.
The fellow will work primarily on analyses and manuscript preparation for Interplay of Genes and Environment across Multiple Studies (IGEMS) consortium Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) grant. IGEMS is a collection of twin studies from Australia, the United States, and Europe comprising over 47,000 individuals. IGEMS contains information on a wide range of risk and protective factors for AD measured across the lifespan, in addition to genome-wide genotyping. Research will emphasize the additive and interactive effects of genetic and environmental risk/protective factors on Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, and MCI.
We are recruiting highly motivated late stage graduate students or Post – Doctoral researchers with experience in programming, statistics, and/or genetics 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 (PI Matthew Keller) in collaboration with Peter Visscher and Jian Yang at the University of Queensland, Australia.
We have an exciting three-year position available to lead a postdoctoral research project on the intergenerational transmission of eating disorders. The successful candidate will work on data from more than 100,000 children and their parents in the Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort Study (MoBa, https://www.fhi.no/en/studies/moba/), including genotype data and longitudinal follow-up from pregnancy onwards.
Drs. and , at the Department of Psychology and the Florida Center for Reading Research at the Florida State University, are recruiting a postdoctoral researcher to work with them on a new NIH-funded , called “LDbase” (www.LDbase.org).
This postdoctoral position on the LDbase project is an opportunity to help create a repository of datasets related to academic achievement available to all researchers. If you’re looking for a job where you’ll get a lot of experience in measurement modeling, publishing manuscripts, as well as getting a course prepped – then this job is for you! Of special interest to BGAers, the complete data from three major twin projects (and growing) have been committed to be stored in LDbase, so there will be opportunities to work on methods related to integrating raw twin data, and publishing twin specific methods and papers.
The Hormones and Behavior Lab in the Department of Psychology at Michigan State University (MSU: http://psychology.msu.edu/) is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow interested in understanding hormonal and genetic risk factors for eating disorders and comorbid conditions using multi-method approaches (behavioral genetics, hormone assessments, clinical interviews, and laboratory tasks). The fellow will lead and support research efforts on a NIMH-funded study (Co-PIs: Drs. Kelly Klump and Kristen Culbert) examining phenotypic and genetic influences of hormones on dysregulated eating in a large sample of child and adolescent twins from the Michigan State University Twin Registry (MSUTR:https://msutwinstudies.com/).
