The MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit at the University of Bristol is looking to recruit three talented quantitative scientists (from genetic epidemiology / statistical genetics or any related backgrounds) to contribute to the next phase of our exciting program of work. One priority area is to advance from understanding causes of the onset of disease, to the causes of disease progression. Whereas understanding causes of disease onset can inform preventative strategies, disease progression can be governed by very different processes, and these are the processes that could more directly translate to novel therapies. You will also be encouraged to develop your own areas of interest.
Post 1. Causal inference for disease progression to identify novel disease therapies – ACAD106638
Post 2. Genetic risk factors for disease severity in eczema – THIS ROLE
Post 3. Enhancing causal inference with molecular data – ACAD106635
We are seeking a talented genetic epidemiologist with an interest in identifying drug targets and/or biomarkers of disease severity in atopic dermatitis (eczema). You will be based in MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit and will collaborate closely with members of the BIOMAP consortium, particularly at King’s College London (KCL) and other BIOMAP partners to identify genetic variants (and implicated genes) associated with the severity and progression of eczema. The work will be conducted in parallel with similar analyses on psoriasis (led by KCL). You will work with several collaborating cohorts to deliver GWAS results. As the analysis will use case only data you will explore and adjust for potential index event bias in the analyses.
Each post will involve collaboration with international collaborators and access to cutting edge data resources. Our programme of work has an emphasis on research that is informative for drug and intervention development.
The posts will be embedded in a supportive environment that prioritises the development of post-doctoral researchers to independence through established training and mentoring programmes.
