Post-doc, Kings’ College London (UK)

We are looking for a post-doctoral researcher for a two-year full time post to work on two iconic Twins datasets with extensive genetic data: TwinsUK and the Twins Early Development Study. The main aim is to delve into genetic and environmental influences on the connection between physical and mental health, for example anxiety and obesity.

Together these cohorts are the largest twin cohorts in the UK and some of the most deeply phenotyped and genotyped in the world, and you will have the opportunity to work with PIs in both teams which are highly supportive environments for developing early career researchers. 

You will be able to develop and test your own hypotheses using our extensive existing datasets, and will write papers and present your work at international conferences. There may also be opportunity for new data collections suiting your interests linking the two cohorts strengths.

More details can be found here:

NB: The closing date will be extended to 31st October and the interviews will be help on 7th November in the morning.

Questions should be directed to:

Prof Thalia Eley

Deputy Director Twins Early Development Study


Dr Claire Steves
