Postdoctoral Researcher (m/f/d), 100% at the Department of Public Mental Health in Mannheim

Published 29. March 2023Stellenangebote

The Central Institute of Mental Health (CIMH) stands for cutting-edge international research and ground-breaking treatment concepts in psychiatry, psychotherapy, child and adolescent psychiatry, psychosomatics and addiction medicine.

The Department of Public Mental Health (led by Professor Ulrich Reininghaus) transform evidence from social epidemiology into mental health service innovations, with the overarching goal of promoting resilience and preventing mental health problems. In a highly innovative, population-based incidence and inception cohort study using cutting-edge statistical approaches and digital technology, we seek to establish and delineate the taxonomy and basic epidemiology of population mental health by testing key aspects of an integrated transdiagnostic model of the mental ill-health spectrum. In the light of new vulnerabilities emerging from climate change, digitalisation, and the global COVID-19 pandemic, we further develop, evaluate, and implement a digital platform for real-world delivery of evidence-based interventions in vulnerable populations.
