Achalasia is a primary motor disorder of the oesophagus characterised by absence of peristalsis and insufficient lower oesophageal sphincter relaxation. There is an increasing demand for comprehensive evidence-based guidelines to assist clinicians in achalasia patient care.
A postdoctoral position is available, to join the Gastrointestinal Genetics Research Group directed by Prof Mauro D’Amato at the School of Biological Sciences, Monash University. Our team combines genomic, computational and pre-clinical expertise to elucidate the pathogenetic mechanisms predisposing to gastrointestinal (GI) disease. The druggable genome, nutrigenetics and host (genome) - microbiota interactions are also new research lines within the group. We take advantage of an extremely vast network of internationalcollaboration with academic, clinical and pharma partners. The ultimate goal of our studies is their translational application for improved therapeutic precision in gastroenterology.

We are excited to share an exciting new initiative from Neurogastroenterology and Motility, which serves as the official journal for both the ESNM and ANMS. The journal will publish a set of guidelines papers, position statements and consensus documents every year in an initiative supported by the publisher.
Submission is a competitive process and a pre-proposal needs to be submitted in the following format (click here to download) (very brief) which will be sent to the appropriate society for their approval before being forwarded and reviewed by all the editors at the journal. Proposals which include authors both from USA and Europe will be viewed more favorably. The position papers are not limited to clinical topics but also basic science topics. As an e.g. “models for visceral pain measurement” was one such proposal. Feel free to reach out to us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any additional questions about the pre-proposal.
If you are interested we would highly recommend you submit a pre-proposal to ESNM (Magdalena Mara at email@example.com) by April 30th 2020. If the topic of the pre-proposal is approved by ESNM it will be forwarded to Dr. Stephen Vanner, the Editor-in-Chief of the Neurogastroenterology and Motility. If the pre-proposal is then approved by the journal, the authors will receive an “invitation” to prepare the paper using the procedures and format described in the invitation. Specific submission deadlines will also be included. The paper will then be reviewed by experts in the field along with the editors of the journal. Even with approval of your pre-proposal the final acceptance and publication of the paper is not guaranteed unless it meets the high standards of the journal.
