Genetically informed designs for causal inference in mental health and education
Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology, University College London
Applications are invited for Research Fellows in the Research Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology at University College London (UCL).
Position provide an exciting opportunity to join a research project aiming to further our understanding of the aetiology of child and adolescent mental health and educational outcomes. The project features data from major longitudinal cohorts and the application of advanced genetically informed causal inference designs. We are looking for an outstanding, high-potential, early-career researcher to contribute to the success of the project and make a substantial contribution to research in this area. The post-holder will benefit from an outstanding research environment in one of the world’s most prestigious universities, with great opportunities to gain training in cutting-edge longitudinal and genetic methods, and to extend their network of collaborators nationally and internationally.
The ideal candidate must have a PhD (or be in the process of completing their PhD) in a relevant subject area (e.g. genomics, psychiatric genetics or epidemiological and developmental psychiatry), possess excellent statistical modelling skills and, ideally, knowledge of genetic methods and software, and have a record of high quality publications.
