OFFER DESCRIPTION

UNIVERSITY OF CAGLIARI invites applications for one Early Stage Researcher (ESR) Fellowship for a PhD study funded as part of the Marie Curie European Training Networks, under the European Commission’s H2020 Framework Programme.

The recruited ESR will join the CAPICE project: “Childhood and Adolescence Psychopathology: unravelling the complex etiology by a large Interdisciplinary Collaboration in Europe” (with a 3-year Marie Curie fellowship).

A total of 12 ESRs for PhD will be hosted across this network and will be trained in the broad field of psychiatric genomics.

CAPICE: general description

Through biological pathway analyses, drug target validation and the building of prediction models, these results will ultimately be translated to the clinic. Analyses will be performed in large international collaborations, making use of the wealth of data available across a range of European birth and adolescent cohorts.

ESRs will be supervised by leaders in the field located at institutions across Europe in Italy (University of Cagliari), The Netherlands (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Erasmus University Medical Center Rotterdam, University of Twente), Sweden (Karolinska Institute, Gøthenburg University, Janssen Pharmaceutical) and the UK (Imperial College London, King’s College London, University of Bristol). At the end of this project the ESRs will be part of a broad international network consisting of academic and non-academic partners.

Candidates with a background in statistical genetics, bioinformatics, psychology, psychiatry or neuroscience are invited to apply.

Project “Building a sustainable facility for multi-site analyses and translating the results to the clinic ”

There has been a clear shift from researchers conducting studies in their own labs to large-scale collaborative studies in consortia. This will remain the rule in (epi)geneticas well as in other kind of analyses. To perform these multi-site analyses most efficiently, the aim is to build a facility that allows analyzing all data available over sites without necessarily having access to the raw data.

Another aim is to summarize the results of (epi)genetic and transcriptomic analyses, obtained both in CAPICE and other projects, and explaining the relevance of these findings to the clinic.
