This project is embedded in the prestigious Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, and will be carried out as a close collaboration between the Human Genetics and Psychiatry departments of the Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre and the Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging. The project comes under the umbrella of the new COGNOMICS research programme, in which we map genetic variability in relation to differences in human brain function and behaviour. You will be placed at the Human Genetics department of the Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre. This department performs cutting-edge research, investigating the relationship between genes and human diseases. The department’s Research Laboratory for Multifactorial Diseases (headed by Prof. Barbara Franke) is an internationally leading group in the research on the genetics of psychiatric disorders, with ADHD as a main focus. The department is part of several large international consortia involved in ADHD genetics and brain imaging genetics. You are highly motivated to work in an interdisciplinary environment at the cutting edge of science. You should have: – a strong background in neuroscience and neuroimaging analysis; – good programming skills (e.g. Matlab); – a strong interest in molecular genetics; – a strong interest in fundamental research related to human disease; – good communication skills.
