Job posts

This PhD project aims to investigate the role of sleep and circadian rhythm disruption in the comorbidity of depression with cardiometabolic diseases (CMD) such as hypertension and diabetes. The study will analyse data from the UK Biobank cohort, which includes over 500,000 individuals, and actigraphy-derived sleep measures from around 90,000 individuals.

Behavioural Data Scientist
Maynooth University

Seeking an enthusiastic and ambitious behavioural data scientist to join our research team to manage studies to develop novel methods for assessment of circadian rhythms. The successful candidate will work with us on cutting-edge research projects that focus on understanding how changes in the variability of circadian rhythms relate to human health and disease. This position will work within AMBIENT-BD, five-year project is led by the University of Edinburgh with co-investigators at Maynooth University, Ireland and the Technical University of Munich, Germany.

SWBio DTP PhD Studentship
Bristol University

The overall aim of this collaborative studentship is to test the hypothesis that ageing changes the potassium channel mediated membrane properties of clock neurons. Some aspects of this project include, developing a model of day/night differences in clock neuron excitability and test if the proposed potassium channel changes switch the neurons between day/night; and developing a model of the effect of ageing on clock neuron excitability.

Post-doctoral Researcher
University of Edinburgh

The postdoctoral researcher will work with Dr Jasna Martinovic on a vision science workstream of a large-scale, multi-site Wellcome Trust HELIOS-BD project “Lithium's mechanism in bipolar disorder: investigating the light hypersensitivity hypothesis”. Which aims to ascertain the precise mechanism of lithium action in bipolar disorder, and will evaluate the hypothesis that it may work by stabilizing aberrant circadian rhythms of mood, cognition and rest/activity, possibly via an action at the level of the retina.
