£32,548 - £36,613 per annum
We are seeking to appoint an early careers researcher to join a team of epidemiologists/researchers working in the School of Social and Community Medicine using data generated by the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC)*. The post holder will be required to support external researchers by compiling datasets, advising them on existing ALSPAC data and providing ongoing support to these researchers during their projects.
Funding is currently available until the end of July 2019, but there may be opportunities for outstanding candidates to continue working in the School/Faculty or University beyond this time.
ALSPAC* recruited more than 14,000 pregnant women with estimated dates of delivery between April 1991 and December 1992. These women, the children arising from the index pregnancy and the women's partners have been followed up since then and detailed data was collected throughout childhood. Since 2011, data have also been collected on the children of the index children. ALSPAC is a three-generational resource available to study the genetic and environmental determinants of development and health.
*Please see www.bristol.ac.uk/alspac/ for more information about ALSPAC.
