PhD opportunities

The Mood and Anxiety Disorders Laboratory has a number of PhD level projects available (many of which are supported by Category 1 grant funding) looking at various aspects of depression and anxiety including cognition, intervention studies, development of e-mental health resources, predictors, risk factors and psychoneuroimmunological markers in depression and anxiety in various population groups including the medically ill such as those with multiple sclerosis and cancer.
