We are looking for a new doctoral student to join our computational team!
Do you want to contribute to top quality medical research?
In the research group we work to improve the lives of individuals with psychiatric conditions. A core theme of our research is to develop more accurate prediction models for both the risk of, and also consequences of, psychiatric conditions.
The main scientific objective of your PhD project is to advance knowledge in suicide prediction. Suicide is a catastrophic event for the individual, close relatives, colleagues, and society. Your project is focused on statistical modelling in two different studies. In both studies you will collaborate with colleagues at Oxford University (UK), University of North Carolina Chapel Hill (US) and Sweden.
🎯Research project 1 is a registry study of risk factors for suicide among psychiatric patients that have experienced compulsive mental care.
🎯Research project 2 you will be working with multimodal data (including genetic data) in a nationwide suicide cohort with the purpose of improving present prediction of suicide aiming to derive and validate better risk models for suicide in the total population.
The position is a part of the Rücklab computational team, led by John Wallert.
We look forward to receiving your application!
