We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher to join our young, dynamic team in child-health and environmental research through fellowship application (https://fundacionlacaixa.org/ca/beques-postdoctorat-junior-leader-incom…). This fellowship has two modalities, incoming or retaining, with different requirements (see details below in the fellowship requirements section).
The researcher will be involved in a birth cohort study, the BiSC project. This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Grant Agreement number 785994 and by the Health Effects Institute (project FRONTIER). In BiSC we have assessed prenatal exposure to several number of environmental aspects (including air pollution and noise) and behavioral/lifestyle of pregnant women with the aim of evaluating their effects on health outcomes of their offspring (particularly focused on birth outcomes and child neurodevelopment, further information at https://www.projectebisc.org/).
The position will involve conducting statistical analysis in the cohort dataset to evaluate associations between an environmental exposure (e.g. air pollution, noise) and a health outcome (e.g. child neurodevelopment at 8 months) and drafting publications, among other research tasks.
