We are seeking an enthusiastic early career scientist with a PhD in psychology, life sciences, genetics, epidemiology or a related subject with an emphasis on quantitative statistical analysis. The successful candidate will work on the project investigating the developmental course of links between educational experiences in mental health longitudinally from childhood to adulthood.

The successful candidate will have Ph.D. or be close to completion.  Strong skills in advanced statistical methods (e.g., twin/family studies, genomic analyses, epidemiological methods), manuscript preparation, and working closely with other institutions are essential. A primary interest in individual differences in educational achievement and developmental psychology and/or the analysis of existing large-sample datasets is desirable.
