The Survey Research Center (SRC) at the University of Michigan’s Institute for Social Research (ISR) invites applications for a full-time position of Research Assistant Professor for the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID).
An exciting opportunity has been created for an enterprising scholar interested in biosocial approaches to health and behavior. This position will provide the opportunity to be among the first to use newly released genomic data collected on siblings and two generations of PSID families, as part of CDS-2014, lead the creation of new genomic data from saliva samples collected in CDS-2019, and oversee a new effort to expand the genomic data to a third generation of these families, which will result in genomic information on children, parents, and grandparents.

The Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics (CING), is an internationally recognised Centre of Excellence offering specialised services, translational research and postgraduate education in the fields of neurology, genetics, biomedical and medical sciences. This is probably the most successful model nowadays as it combines education, service and innovative research activities in one centre, providing major medical benefits to the people, society and the country. CING was one of the first, and today one of the best Institutes in Europe where postgraduate education, research and service have been successfully combined.
Research Associate- University of York, United Kingdom, full-time, 10 months fixed-term. The position of a Research Associate has become available at the Hungry Mind Lab (www.hungrymindlab.com) at the Department of Education at the University of York. The position is associated with a research project awarded by the Nuffield Foundation to Prof Sophie von Stumm. The project’s aim is to study the gene-environment interplay in children’s early life development, using longitudinal cohort study data. The successful candidate will have strong quantitative statistical skills. Flexible/remote working options are available. The post is for 10 months in the first instance, but may be extended depending on performance.
The goal of the summer school is to introduce researchers from various fields to key concepts, state-of-the-art methods, and computer tools in statistical genetics that can be applied in the social and medical sciences. The course will be highly quantitative and interactive, covering topics such as the estimation and interpretation of heritability using molecular genetic data, genetic association studies, polygenic prediction, and identification strategies to isolate causal effects using genetic insights. It will emphasize methodological issues such as appropriate study design, data integrity, multiple testing, detecting and controlling for potential confounds, as well as factors influencing the accuracy of polygenic scores.
