Careers with PGC Investigators

The Psychiatric Genomics Consortium is one of the most innovative experiments in the history of psychiatry. We have unified much of the field to enable rapid progress in elucidating the genetic basis of psychiatric disorders. We have 800+ investigators from 36 countries and >400K subjects. The PGC has attracted a cadre of outstanding scientists whose careers center on our work. We are interested in making connections for Early Career Researchers.

Postdoctoral Research Associate King’s College London
with Dr Jonathan Coleman
This position is funded by the Medical Research Foundation. The post-holder will conduct research building on recently identified associations between genetic variants and major depressive disorder. They will work closely with the supervisor to expand an existing fine-mapping pipeline and apply it to the latest genetic data on major depressive disorder from the Psychiatric Genomics Consortium. They will collaborate with colleagues in bioinformatics and with the statistical genetics community at the SGDP Centre, and will consult with cell biologists at the wider Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Neuroscience. These analyses will further our understanding of the biology of major depressive disorder, a fundamental step in improving future treatments.Apply HereJuly 20, 2022
