Position: Senior Research Fellow in Life Course and Genetic Epidemiology
Institution: University College London
Department: Institute of Cardiovascular Science
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The appointee will apply epidemiological expertise to a project aiming to identify blood-based biomarkers that could predict the risk of major neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The researcher will also contribute to projects to help validate opportunities to repurpose commonly prescribed medications for the prevention of such disorders. The successful applicant will: oversee the design of the biomarkers study, undertake statistical analysis of these data and the separate pharmacological analyses, and play a leading role in writing grants, and preparing manuscripts
Requirements: The post would suit someone whose background is in a combination of life course, molecular and genetic epidemiology, particularly those whose expertise extends across two or more of these areas. A demonstrable interest in the epidemiology of neurodegenerative diseases is expected. The ideal applicant will also have experience with analysis of birth cohort data, molecular traits and genetic data, and instrumental variable statistical methods. Appreciated software skills include the use of Stata, R, Unix and bash programming. We expect the appointee to have a PhD or equivalent degree and some postdoctoral experience in epidemiological research. They will also have a strong track record in attracting grant income as a lead investigator. We place a strong emphasis on potential for independence and on supporting career development, and the appointee should have existing supervisory experience
