We are looking for a motivated team member to join IMIM’s Health Services Research Group, led by Dr Jordi Alonso. Among other research interests, the Health Services Research Group focusses on implementing state-of-the-art statistical techniques (including machine learning) on various types of data (e.g., web-based survey data, electronic healthcare registry data, data obtained through ambulatory/momentary assessment or experience sampling methods ) to develop new insights in the development of risk for mental disorders and suicide, and to quantify unmet need for healthcare among those individuals with mental health issues. The team is currently leading various research projects that focus on identifying and predicting adverse mental health outcomes in different populations (e.g., general population, university students, healthcare professionals, COVID-19 patients). And also Psychological Well-Being.
