What We Are Looking for
ISGlobal is looking an epidemiologist to work on the LIFECYCLE project. LIFECYCLE is a european research project (funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement No 733206) which will establish the EuroCHILD Cohort Network, bringing together existing, successful pregnancy and child cohorts and biobanks, to generate new integrated data on early life stressors related to socio-economic, migration, urban environment and life-style determinants.
Ultimately, LIFECYCLE will lead to a unique sustainable EuroCHILD Cohort Network, and provide recommendations for targeted prevention strategies by identification of novel markers of early life stressors related to health trajectories throughout the lifecycle.
