SCOTT FAMILY JUNIOR RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP FOR STUDIES INTO AUTISM

University College invites applications for a Scott Family Junior Research Fellowship for studies into Autism tenable for a period of three years from 1 January 2004 or as soon as possible thereafter. The Fellow will be expected to participate in the newly established programme of research under Professor Anthony Bailey in the Department of Psychiatry. The main focus of the research is on establishing the genetic and neurobiological basis of autism and related disorders. The successful candidate will have a background in either developmental cognitive psychology or statistics and will be involved in the development of cognitive tests of milder phenotypic expression or the analysis of complex family-genetic data sets.

The successful applicant will be working as a part of a multi-disciplinary team co-ordinating a large international consortium to identify the susceptibility genes for autism and related disorders. There is a particular focus on identifying the full range of phenotypic expression in relatives, using convergent approaches that include direct cognitive testing, with the aim of establishing genotype-phenotype correlation and the factors affecting phenotypic expression.
