  • Postdoctoral Researcher Position Open at ERASMUS MC

    📢 Exciting opportunity! ERASMUS MC seeks a talented Postdoc Researcher to investigate epigenetics and intergenerational psychiatric risk. Joining the European-funded FAMILY consortium, you’ll develop prenatal exposure scores based on DNA methylation at birth. Examine whether the transmission load score is stable over time and predicts the development of psychiatric problems. Explore score stability, predictive abilities, and test for sex differences, especially resulting from X-chromosome inactivation. Apply now and make a difference! Find more information here.
