Postdoctoral Fellowship – “Developmental Pathways of Mental Health from Childhood to Middle Adulthood

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?

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. The center is financed by the Research Council of Norway and contributions from the Department of Psychology. the Department of Sociology and Human Geography, the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, and other participating partners.
