UNIVERSITY OF CAGLIARI invites applications for one Early Stage Researcher (ESR) Fellowship for a PhD study funded as part of the Marie Curie European Training Networks, under the European Commission’s H2020 Framework Programme.
The recruited ESR will join the CAPICE project: “Childhood and Adolescence Psychopathology: unravelling the complex etiology by a large Interdisciplinary Collaboration in Europe” (with a 3-year Marie Curie fellowship). In this ambitious and inspiring network, 12 Early Stage Researches (ESRs; PhD-level training) will be trained in the broad field of psychiatric genomics, investigating the role of genetics and epigenetics, and their interplay with the environment, in the development and persistence of childhood and adolescent psychopathology. Through biological pathway analyses, drug target validation and the building of prediction models, these results will ultimately be translated to the clinic. Analyses will be performed in large international collaborations, making use of the wealth of data available across a range of European birth and adolescent cohorts.
The project at the University of Cagliari is part of the CAPICE consortium, coordinated by the VU University in Amsterdam. The candidate will be work at and hired by the University of Cagliari.
Project “Building a sustainable facility for multi-site analyses and trandlating the results to the clinic”
There has been a clear shift from researchers conducting studies in their own labs to large-scale collaborative studies in consortia. This will remain the rule in (epi)geneticas well as in other kind of analyses. To perform these multi-site analyses most efficiently, the aim is to build a facility that allows analyzing all data available over sites without necessarily having access to the raw data.
Another aim is to summarize the results of (epi)genetic and transcriptomic analyses, obtained both in CAPICE and other projects, and explaining the relevance of these findings to the clinic.
