PHD POSITION IN STATISTICAL GENOMICS/GENETIC EPIDEMIOLOGY

The Max Planck Institute (MPI) for Psycholinguistics, Nijmegen, the Netherlands, is offering a PhD position in Statistical Genomics/Genetic Epidemiology within the population genetics of human communication group, led by Dr Beate St Pourcain and embedded within the Language & Genetics Department at the MPI.

Using nutrigenetic, nutrigenomic and machine learning approaches to investigate the risk of cardiometabolic disease-related traits in ethnically diverse populations.

This PhD project represents an exciting opportunity to develop and conduct research at the forefront of nutritional and genetic epidemiology, contributing to the prediction, prevention, and better understanding of the development of non-communicable diseases such as obesity and diabetes, using datasets from multiple ethnic groups.

The use of life course epidemiology to support the experimental characterisation of genetic variation

Project Background. There has been a rapid expansion in the generation of genetic sequence data over the last decade. Understanding the potential relevance of genetic mutations to human health remains challenging. Read more

Integrative genomics prioritisation of drug targets

The MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit at the University of Bristol is the leading group for the development and application of causal analysis and evidence triangulation in health research to improve lives. Read more

Discovering off-target side-effects and drug repurposing candidates using expression perturbation data

Rationale. Mendelian Randomization (MR) is a genetic epidemiology method which utilises variants sourced from genome-wide association studies (GWAS) to assess causality between risk/protective factors and disease outcomes in a manner less biased to observational studies(1). Read more

Discovering off-target side-effects and drug repurposing candidates using expression perturbation data

The MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit at the University of Bristol is the leading group for the development and application of causal analysis and evidence triangulation in health research to improve lives. Read more

Metabolomic characterisation of adiposity across the life course

Project Background. There is evidence that adiposity, measured by body mass index (BMI), causally influences a range of health outcomes, but little understanding of the mechanisms driving BMI effects. Read more

How does parental education increase risk to ADHD in the offspring?

Rationale. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a chronic neurodevelopmental condition, characterised by persistent difficulties in the areas of attention span/impulse control. Read more

Identifying causal pathways to disease using DNA methylation predicted blood traits.

Project Background. Blood cell types have been implicated in pathogenesis of chronic diseases. Genome wide association studies have identified thousands of variants associated with blood trait variation. Read more

Harnessing the genetics of DNA methylation to understand context-specific gene regulation in disease

Project Background. Genome wide association studies (GWAS) have discovered many genetic associations with health outcomes. However, most GWAS signals reside in non-coding regions and it is likely that GWAS variants confer their effects through a regulatory mechanism. Read more
