Doctoral position in psychiatric epidemiology, Karolinska

Dear all,

I am looking for a PhD candidate in the field of psychiatric epidemiology at The
Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Karolinska Institutet,

The doctoral student will be involved in the project focusing on early-life
environmental risk factors for Intellectual Disability, including biological and
psychosocial influences. The overarching aim is to disentangle effects of different
early-life environmental factors (e.g., maternal, and neonatal factors) on
Intellectual Disability and identify at-risk groups needing clinical surveillance.
The project will be based on large-scale longitudinally collected linkage of
administrative and health registers along with the Swedish Twin and Multi-Generation
Registers. We will use family-based quasi-experimental designs.
