The Center for Eating Disorders Innovation (CEDI) in the department of medical epidemiology and biostatistics, MEB, and has been established under the auspices of the Swedish Research Council. We are an interdisciplinary team and we employ a diverse set of methodologies including genetic epidemiology, molecular genetics, biomarkers, microbiology, animal models to enhance knowledge about the causes, treatments, and prevention of eating disorders.
Project manager for scientific work in the genetics of eating disorders in the Center for Eating Disorders Innovation (CEDI). The appointee will, under Prof Bulik’s direction, manage multiple projects whose purpose is to rapidly gain insight into the causes of eating disorders and thereby advance treatment and prevention efforts. The main components are: (a) to assist with completion of CREAT—an investigation of monozygotic twins who are discordant for anorexia nervosa; (b) to oversee and manage Swedish BEGIN (Binge-Eating Genetics INitiative); (c) to oversee and manage a follow-on study of the Anorexia Nervosa Genetics Initiative (ANGI) focused on the relation between host genomics and microbiota; and (d) to manage additional projects as they emerge. Project management will entail: (a) obtaining and maintaining Ethical approvals, (b) participation in scientific strategy and prioritization, (c) planning, organizing, and tracking samples for biomarker investigations, (d) liaising with the KI biobank, (e) direct responsibility for supervision of study personnel, (f) financial management, and (g) responsibility for meeting all project milestones.
