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.
We are inviting applications for a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in genetic epidemiology, statistical genetics or related fields with an interest in cardiometabolic traits and diseases.
By using genetics, we aim to understand the biology that underlies the susceptibility to obesity and its links to related cardiometabolic traits. We study common, low frequency and rare variants  in an ancestrally diverse population of >40,000 individuals recruited from throughout New York City through the Mount Sinai’s ongoing BioMe EMR-linked Biobank,  in the large-scale UK Biobank (n = 500,000), and  in a unique discordant-sib family study.
Post-Doctoral Training Program in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research
The Waisman Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is recruiting post-doctoral trainees for its NIH-funded Post-Doctoral Training Program in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research. Appointments will be for 2 years beginning in the summer or early fall of 2018. The program provides multidisciplinary training with an emphasis on social affective processes, communication, family processes, epidemiology, genetics, and biobehavioral approaches as they relate to intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The position of NIH Scientific Review Officer, including in the Population Sciences and Epidemiology IRG at the NIH Center for Scientific Review is open.
This IRG includes the Behavior Genetics and Epidemiology Study Section
The window for applying is short (opening Jan 22, closing Jan 31). Be great to have a BG person here, so spread the word! (or apply!)
|Postdoctoral Associate in behavioral genetics and psychopathology research at the University of Minnesota, Department of Psychology.
Scott Vrieze is seeking postdoctoral researchers to contribute to behavioral genetic research in his laboratory at the University of Minnesota, Department of Psychology. The laboratory conducts genetically-informed research on a wide variety of questions, including discovery of genes that influence addiction and psychopathology, developmental psychopathology, the impact of drug policy laws including recreational marijuana legalization, and the use of online/wireless technologies to passively collect intensive longitudinal data on health-related behaviors. Successful applicants can consider any or all of these avenues of research.
