New exciting PhD projects at the Centre for Urban Mental Health
In January 2020 eight PhD projects starts at the Centre for Urban Mental Health. The projects are equally distributed across three Faculties (two projects per Faculty): Faculty of Sciences, Social & Behavioral Sciences, and Medicine.
The turnout of our UMH launch event at De Duif, Amsterdam on 8 November was a huge success. Thank you everyone for attending and supporting us.
Then, a series of guest lectures highlighted the importance of embracing complexity science in urban mental health using various mediums: professor Peter Sloot (Complexity science; UvA), professor Johan Bollen (Social media; Indiana University), professor Paul Verschure (Clinical stroke intervention; Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia), and professor Denny Borsboom (Network symptom modelling; UvA). Lastly, we had a series of pitches on six new exciting PhD projects which are fully funded by our Centre starting in January 2020.
