Description

Postdoc in eating disorder genetics with Dr. Cynthia Bulik. Karolinska Institutet, MEB

Karolinska Institutet, MEB

The Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (MEB) is among the largest departments of epidemiology in Europe with special focus on increasing our knowledge of the aetiology of different diseases. Our department consists of researchers, doctoral students, biostatisticians, data collectors and database administrators as well as administrative personnel, in total some 250 staff. The department is situated at campus Solna.

 

More Details

We are now seeking a postdoctoral fellow in eating disorder genetics to join professor Cynthia Bulik’s group at the Karolinska Institutet.The Centre for Eating Disorders Innovation (CEDI) at MEB was established by Professor Cynthia Bulik under the auspices of the Swedish Research Council. We are dedicated to applying novel and emerging methodologies and technologies to elucidate causal mechanisms underlying eating disorders and related phenotypes. The overarching goal of CEDI is to discover how the genome, the microbiome, and the environment act and interact to modify the risk for eating disorders. Our studies aim to discover the molecular and cellular mechanisms that are involved in these processes.

Opportunity Focus Areas:

  • Epidemiology.
  • Bio statistics.
  • Bioinformatics.
  • Statistical genetics.
  • Genetics.

Required Languages

English.

Eligibility Requirements (Criteria)

  • A person is eligible for a position as postdoctoral research fellow if they have obtained a PhD no more than seven years before the last date of the postdoc employment.
  • Applicants should have a PhD degree in epidemiology, biostatistics, bioinformatics, statistical genetics, or genetics.
  • Due to the demands of modern genomics we also require skills in programming (e.g., R, python, SAS), use of standard software packages imputation (e.g., for GWAS, imputation, NGS data analysis), bioinformatic integration, use of computational clusters, knowledge on polygenic risk score analyses, or similar knowledge. Specific knowledge of psychiatric genomics (particularly for eating disorders) is highly desirable.
  • The applicant should be highly collegial, experienced in working in “team science” contexts, possess excellent organizational skills, know how to successfully multitask, and should be able to describe past examples of solving unanticipated and complex problems.
