Post Doctoral Research Associate
This role is available for an immediate start.
We are looking for an outstanding individual to join the AIMS-2-TRIALS. This study brings together centres across the EU, North America, and South Africa. Together we carry out ‘deep phenotyping’ studies of fetuses and infants at risk of developing autism, children and adults with autism, and individuals with rare genetic disorders. Our aim is to better understand the cause(s) of autism – and so identify new treatments. This is a unique opportunity to contribute to the world-wide largest grant in neurodevelopment.
Working under the direction Professor Grainne McAlonan the main purpose of this role is to discover and validate EEG biomarkers across age groups and understand how these relate to outcome in very young children. He/she will have advanced knowledge of autism, and EEG data acquisition and analysis. Involved in all aspects of the project, from manuscript writing through to presenting results at meetings, he or she will also play a proactive role in fostering close collaboration across the department by providing data analysis support to colleagues and other researchers on areas of shared research.
Please note that this is a PhD level role. Candidates who have submitted their thesis and are awaiting award of their PhDs will also be considered.
