Job number: ACAD102505
Division/School: School of Social and Community Medicine
Contract type: Open ended contract staff
Working pattern: Full time
Salary: 32,004- 36,001 (Grade I)/ 36,001- 37,075 (Grade J)

We have a vacancy for a talented epidemiologists or biostatisticians with an interest in how early life (pre-conceptual, pregnancy and early infancy) exposures affect life course trajectories of cardio-metabolic health (and other health outcome trajectories) to work on the recently funded Horizon2020 LifeCycle project. The overarching aim of LifeCycle is to bring together and harmonize data from 40 birth/pregnancy cohorts from across Europe that jointly include data on up to 250,000 mother-offspring pairs, complete analyses of potential effects of early life stressors on the development of key health outcomes and where appropriate facilitate translation of these findings into clinical practice.

The successful candidate will primarily focus on the relationship of early life stressors with development of cardio-metabolic health, including exploring the potential role of mediation by epigenetic and metabolomic markers. This will include harmonizing relevant data from across cohorts, writing analysis plans, completing analyses on some of the cohorts and integrating, with meta-analyses and/or triangulation approaches, results from different cohorts. Analysis methods will include appropriate analyses of longitudinal repeatedly assessed data and application of causal approaches such as Mendelian randomization, cross-cohort comparisons, and negative control studies. In addition, they will contribute to other work-packages by completing analyses for other outcome developmental trajectories. They will contribute to writing papers and presenting results at workshops and conferences.

The University is committed to creating and sustaining a fully inclusive culture. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and communities.
