The GEL Lab has a PhD studentship available, starting October 2022.

The studentship is a collaboration between Dr Emma Meaburn at Birkbeck University and Dr Bonamy Oliver at the Institute of Education, University College London. The studentship is funded by the Bloomsbury Colleges.

Project title: Understanding polygenic and pre/post-natal environmental influences – and their interplay – in cognitive and behavioural development.

Project details: Advances in polygenic score research have been considerable in recent years, but nevertheless demonstrate that genetic studies are not free from environmental confounding, and causal paths remain uncertain. The studentship will build on recent theoretical and technical advances to better understand the interconnected influences of DNA sequence variation and environmental influences on children’s development.

It would suit students with an interest and aptitude for genetics, as well as for child and adolescent behavioural development and quantitative methods. Knowledge, understanding or interest in family processes or intervention would also be an advantage. The project will require strong statistical analysis skills (e.g. experience in linear modelling, structural equation modelling)

Principal Supervisor: Dr Emma Meaburn
