In the context of frailty during aging, the scientific project of the post doc is, from a cohort of 500 older adults who have been hospitalized at Charité Berlin:
The aim is to obtain a metabolomics-based signature able to identify at discharge, those metabotypes potentially responsive to future (at home) nutritional and/or physical activity interventions. This tool would provide a more accurate and fast diagnosis, improving the identification of the patient needs and enabling a more personalized care pathway during the hospital stay and after discharge.
Keywords: elderly, metabolomics biomarkers, nutritional status, mobility, frailty
The fellow will be recruited by the Université Clermont Auvergne/INRAE (France) but will be required to carry out first his/her research work at the Charité University Hospital in Berlin under the supervision of Pr. K. Norman ( PhD, Charité Berlin and DIfE Postdam) and then, at the INRAE Research Centre in France. In Germany, a clustering of the geriatric patients of the Wonder cohort (n=500) will be made and in France, the metabolomics analyses will be carried out with the management, interpretation and modeling of the big data generated.
Salary: 2 100-2 400€ net of charge per month depending on the years of expertise after the PhD.
Duration: 18 months
Expertise/Background requested: The candidate must have training and skills focused on (bio)statistics (univariate, multivariate, clustering, predictive models) “omics” data analysis and treatment. Additional skills would be appreciated particularly in clinical studies, epidemiology, metabolism or nutrition. The training of various skills (biochemistry, nutrition) within a transdisciplinary project supervised by several specialists should be a central motivation of the candidate. Fluency in English is required.Continue reading
