1-2 Postdoc fellowships: PROMENTA Research Center 748 views

The Department of Psychology at University of Oslo (UiO) has 1-2 postdoctoral fellowships available at the PROMENTA Research Center. PROMENTA is a newly established interdisciplinary research center at the Department of Psychology aiming to provide answers to three central questions in mental health, well-being, and drug use research: What processes lead to poor and good mental health, and how? How do social and geographic inequalities in mental health arise? How can we develop, tailor, and evaluate effective interventions in communities to promote good mental health? To address these questions, we examine sources of mental health on a variety of levels, such as genetic risk, neurocognitive development, the psychosocial environment, and the socio-cultural and political context.

About the project:

The 1-2 postdoctoral positions are funded through two grants from the Research Council of Norway for the projects:

  1. Motherhood and Quality of Life: The causal processes of caregiving burden, illness coping, work-life, genetics and social relations”, and
