The Family Genomics Research Group in the Department of Biology, Maynooth University (https://www.familygenomics.maynoothuniversity.ie
/) are recruiting a Postdoctoral Researcher to join our ERC “FamilySleeps
” research project, funded by a European Research Council Starting Investigator grant awarded to Dr Lorna Lopez, “Disruption of Circadian Rhythms in Families – an Endophenotype of Autism Spectrum Disorder”.
FamilySleeps is the first study to investigate circadian rhythms in autism in the context of genetics, the environment, and social synchrony of the family. FamilySleeps will bring together a team of scientific and clinical researchers, with public patient involvement experts, to work on the underlying biological basis of disrupted circadian rhythms in families with autism. This understanding will help address sleep disruption and other problems in families with autism, as well as increasing our understanding of the role of circadian rhythms in neurodevelopment in a family context.
We are looking to appoint a lead analyst on our genomic risk score work package with a statistical genetics research background and experience in neuropsychiatric genomic risk profiling data analysis. The successful candidate will lead large-scale studies on circadian rhythms in families with neurodevelopmental conditions, and contribute to the supervision of a PhD student. The postdoctoral researcher will join a dynamic, well-supported, multidisciplinary research team of geneticists, chronobiologists and psychiatrists undertaking genetic risk profiling on circadian rhythms in families. The successful candidate will be supported to prepare fellowship proposals and to develop independent research themes, should they wish to do so. This post is for 24 months, with a possibility of extension for a further 24 months, and an anticipated commencement month of July 2022.
Maynooth University is committed to a strategy in which the primary University goals of excellent research and scholarship and outstanding education are interlinked and equally valued.
Senior Post-doctoral Researcher: € 46,906 - € 48,242 per annum with annual increments (2 points)
Appointments will be made in accordance with public sector pay provisions.
