Post-doc, University of California, San Diego (USA)

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 mspanizzon@ucsd.edu or William Kremen at wkremen@ucsd.edu.

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.

Post-doc, Michigan State University (USA)

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/).

Behavioral Genetics of Addiction Laboratory

Emory University, Department of Psychology

I am seeking a postdoctoral fellow to join my lab (https://scholarblogs.emory.edu/bgalab/) in the Department of Psychology at Emory University. My research examines the role of genomic variants and gene networks in the onset and persistence of drug and alcohol use and disorders, as well as other associated behaviors and/or endophenotypes.

This post-doctoral position will focus on translating genetic findings for generalized substance use and disorders into a predictive toolset that can inform future research and intervention/prevention programs.Candidates with interest in integrating multiple-omics data (DNA, RNA, microRNA, Methylation, Proteomics data) and/or endophenotypes into predictive models are encouraged to apply.
