  •     A prospective, longitudinal birth mother-offspring cohort study (Growing Up in Singapore Towards Health Outcomes; GUSTO) study provides a unique opportunity to investigate 1) gene-environment influence on cognitive and brain development; 2) the regulation of epigenetic memory on the development of children’s mental health. GUSTO establishes the intense assessment of cognition, emotional, brain imaging, genetics and epigenetics from infancy onwards and environmental measurements, such as maternal mental health, nutrition, social support etc. This is a longitudinal study that started in 2009. We now have collected infant brain images at multiple time points, cognitive behavior data at multiple time points, genotyping data, and epigenetic data at multiple time points.
     
        We are now seeking researchers who are interested in mining GUSTO data at all levels. We aim to identify new markers characterizing environmental, genetic, and cognitive factors and hence explaining epigenetic markers and children’s mental health.  The position includes opportunities to apply novel computational models to high-dimensional data sets and develop expertise in 'big data' analysis in neuroscience and to work within a highly multidisciplinary research setting that includes expertise in bioinformatics and biostatistics.     

    Requirements:
    ·       PhD on cognitive or affective neuroscience, neuroimaging, bioinformatics, computer vision, statistics, or relevant field
    ·       Experience on mining high dimensional data
    ·       Good communication in English language
    ·       English writing skill is a must.
