The Institute for Behavioral Genetics, University of Colorado Boulder, invites applications for a tenure track Assistant Professorship with an academic appointment in one of the following departments: 1) Psychology and Neuroscience, 2) Integrative Physiology, 3) Economics, 4) Computer Science, 5) Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, 6) Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology.
Applications are invited for a 3-4 year position as PhD fellow in psychology in “Genetic and environmental factors in wellbeing and mental health”, at the PROMENTA Research Center, Department of Psychology, University of Oslo.
The PhD fellow will collaborate with colleagues at PROMENTA, and internationally, to examine the role of genetic and environmental factors in wellbeing and mental health. The PhD project will aim to examine a) causal factors and processes in wellbeing, b) the genetic and environmental underlying structure of the broader wellbeing spectrum, and c) gene-environment interplay in wellbeing and mental health. Methodologically, the project will be based on longitudinal twin studies and molecular genetic studies, with data from the Norwegian Twin Registry and the Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort Study (MoBa). The MoBa is a unique pregnancy cohort comprising genetic and phenotypic data from 250 000 individuals nested in family trios.
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.
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 email@example.com or William Kremen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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/).
The National Institutes on Drug Abuse within the Epidemiology Research Branch has a Program Officer and Scientific Review Officer position open, focused on tobacco. one of the 24 Institutes and Centers within the NIH that awards extramural grants! Extramural grants account for approximately 80 percent of NIH’s budget and are awarded to investigators at more than 2,500 universities, medical schools, and other research organizations around the world.

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.
The Department of Psychology at Arizona State University invites applications for a full-time, Assistant/Associate Professor, tenured/tenure-track position to begin Fall 2019 in the area of behavior genetics.
Essential qualifications include a doctoral degree in Psychology or other discipline relevant to the position (e.g., neuroscience, behavior genetics) by the start date, and a strong record of research productivity and teaching effectiveness relative to the candidate’s level of experience. We are interested in candidates who examine human or animal genetics or epigenetics together with other biological, behavioral, social and/or cultural levels of analysis.
