Research Trainees


Internship available - Genetic risk factors of sleep disorders

Project Description
Dr. Simon Warby's Laboratory is focused on the genetic basis and modifiers of sleep disorders. Dr. Warby's Lab is multidisciplinary and encompasses clinical, molecular and computational aspects of human sleep research.

Currently we are seeking an internship for a project on the genetics of insomnia. The candidate for the internship will be responsible for entering clinical data, doing literature review, performing data analysis and presenting findings at lab meetings.  Candidates with a clinical background will be reviewing clinical files and analyzing data regarding the overlap of insomnia with other psychiatric conditions, such as anxiety and depression. Candidates with a computational background may be involved in polysomnography analysis.

This project will lead to the participation at the research day of the Sacré Coeur de Montréal Hospital, and potentially co-authorship on a manuscript.
