We have a vacancy for a talented epidemiologists or biostatisticians with an interest in the relationship between the menopausal transition and women’s cardio-metabolic, musculo-skeletal, cognitive, and mental health and/or the analyses of complex multi-dimensional data that have been repeatedly assessed.
The successful candidate will primarily undertake analyses using the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children Mothers study, over 3000 of whom have completed repeat clinical assessments and questionnaires (up to four per woman), as they go through the menopausal transition. Anthropometric, blood pressure, fasting multiple-metaboiites sex hormones and DNA methylation, as well as DEXA and pQCT skeletal scans, cognitive function and physical capability tests have been repeatedly assessed. The successful candidate will complete analyses using these data to try and explore the extent to which any longitudinal changes in disease and health related traits are due to hormonal changes related to the menopause, ageing or changes in lifestyle and behaviours across women’s mid-life. They will also undertake relevant literature reviews and work with others, including a medical anthropologist and documentary photographer, who are also exploring different aspects of women’s health and wellbeing as they go through mid-life.
