Postdoctoral Research Associate – Genetics of Prodromal Parkinson’s Disease (GP2)
About the Role
The Postdoctoral Research Associate will be joining the Centre for Preventive Neurology (CPN) to work on the international Global Parkinson’s Genetics Program (GP2; https://gp2.org/), funded by the Aligning Science Across Parkinson’s initiative and The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
Specifically, the post holder will join the ‘early/at-risk’ theme of GP2, focused on understanding the genetic basis of prodromal Parkinson’s disease (PD) on a global scale. This includes identifying cohorts of patients with REM sleep behaviour disorder, hyposmia, and carriers of monogenic causes of PD, liaising with the principal investigators and ultimately bringing the data into GP2.
Applicants should have a solid background in genetics, data science or bioinformatics. This post would be suitable for an applicant who is hoping to continue on a pathway to research independence or who may be considering a career focused on scientific project management. The applicant should be willing to work with investigators and collaborators across GP2 and contribute to training in the GP2 Trainee Network.
