Early Stage Researcher Position: Genetics and Genomics of Type 2 diabetes

From Tim Frayling at University of Exeter:

£21,565 per annum plus mobility, travel and other allowances in line with the Marie Curie Framework 7 requirements for Early Stage Researchers. Fixed Term until 31.08.2013.

We invite applications for an Early StageResearcher as part of Marie Curie Framework 7 Early Stage Training Scheme.

You will be one of 15 early stage researchers – ESRs appointed as part of a multi centre Marie Curie scheme. You will be a non-UK resident, and spend most of your time at University of Exeter. You will have a BSc 2.1 or MSc in the biological, physical, mathematical or computing sciences with an interest in the genetics and genomics of human traits.

The major aim of this project is to define the genetic basis of how beta cell function influences the risk of type 2 diabetes. You will join a Molecular Genetics group consisting of a team of 12 scientists, students and technicians that has become internationally recognized as a leader in the genetics of common human traits and conditions (e.g. Lango Allen et al Nature 2010, Freathy et al Nature Genetics 2010, Frayling et al Science 2007). Our focus is on type 2 diabetes and related traits. You will have access to a wide range of resources including genome wide DNA and RNA-based data.

Applicants must be eligible to be appointed as an Early Stage Researcher in the UK under the European Commission Framework 7 Early Stage Research Training Scheme (see at http://www.boldmcitn.eu/project for what this means)
