The successful candidate will contribute to an exciting ESRC funded project entitled "A Participatory Psychosocial Care Approach to Mental Health in Colombia (PPC-Colombia)". PPC-Colombia consortium comprises a multidisciplinary team of researchers (Social and Health Psychology.

You will be part of a team researching and designing participatory, community-based mental health interventions for the victims of the Colombian conflict, also contributing to the analysis and integration of several existing datasets.
