Deadline: 17 September 2021 – NEAR is looking for a Postdoc in Epidemiology of Aging

NEAR is looking for a postdoctoral researcher to conduct work on gene-environment interplay in older adults included in NEAR. Specifically, longitudinal analyses will be conducted to understand how interventions from drug therapy interact with individual aging trajectories as assessed by different biomarkers of aging. The post-doc researcher will mainly be working with NEAR data harmonization for the variables related to the project, and will be responsible for project planning, data preparation (together with database managers within NEAR), and data analysis. The post-doc researcher will spend her or his time at the Aging Research Center (ARC) and the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (MEB) at Karolinska Institutet (KI).

Your profile
The applicant should have a PhD related to epidemiology, pharmaco-epidemiology, or aging and have experience with methods in biostatistics and epidemiological research, as well as registry-based data and/or genetic data. Excellent data management skills in R, SAS and/or Stata and Unix programming are meriting.
