2 postdoctoral fellowships and 2 PhDs studentships at University College London

We advertise 2 postdoctoral fellowships and 2 PhDs studentships at University College London. These positions provide an exciting opportunity to join Intergenerational-RISK (I-RISK), a European ResearchCouncil funded project aiming to identify causal intergenerational pathways linking parental risk factors to child mental illness. Mental illnesses account for 32% of years lived with disability. Critically,50% of mental illnesses are established before age 14 years. It is thus imperative to better understand the causes of early psychiatric symptoms in childhood if we are to design effective preventive interventions.

To better identify intergenerational pathways, I-RISK will develop and implement cutting-edge genetically-informed methods to enable stronger causal inference. In particular, the project will focus on so-called‘genetic nurture’ effects. The project features data from four of the largest child cohorts in Europe (pooled N >100,000) with genomic data on parents and children. We are looking for a high-potential early-career researcher to contribute to the success of the project and make a substantial contribution to research in this area. The postholders will benefit from a prestigious research environment in one of the world’s most prestigious universities.

The positions offers great opportunities to gain training in cutting-edge longitudinal and genetic methods, and to collaborate with leading researchers in the field, nationally and internationally.
