Senior Research Associate in Epigenetic Epidemiology or Medical Statistics (Two Posts)
School of Social and Community Medicine
Salary: £35,609 – £40,082 per annum
Open ended contract staff
Job number: ACAD101931
We have two full-time vacancies which offer excellent opportunities for a talented epidemiologist, epigenetic epidemiologist, or medical statistician to join the MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit (MRC IEU) within the School of Social and Community Medicine (SSCM), University of Bristol, one of the leading centres for Integrative Epidemiology in the UK.
One post-holder will study the associations of women’s reproduction (age at menopause, age at menarche, menopausal transition and reproductive hormones) with DNA methylation. The second post-holder will study the associations of pregnancy exposures (primarily obesity, gestational weight change and multiple metabolites related to obesity) with DNA methylation in the mother and her offspring across their life course.
However, we anticipate that the two post-holders will work closely together. There would be potential for sharing the work between the two posts in ways that would best suit the appointed candidates and not necessarily delineated as above.
For informal enquiries please contact Professor Debbie Lawlor 0117 331 0096 or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The University of Bristol is committed to equality and we value the diversity of our staff and students.
