The duties of the candidate will focus on using and developing statistical genetic tools using genome wide association study (GWAS) data. The goal of the project is the further elucidation of the genetic architecture of cognitive and socioeconomic traits, their relationship with neuroimaging and health outcomes, optimising risk prediction, and understanding biology. The RA will work under the supervision of the project Principal Investigator (PI) Dr W. David Hill.

Applicants should have (or nearly have) a PhD in statistical genetics, computational biology, or a related quantitative and/or computational field. Experience in genomic data management, the analysis of genetic data, and of working with largescale
