Research project

The Norwegian COVID-19, Mental Health and Adherence Project (MAP-19) project is a large-scale longitudinal epidemiological investigation examining the connection between non-pharmacological interventions (NPIs) employed against the SARS CoV-2 virus and mental health symptoms in the general adult population. The project further investigates the role of personality, contextual pressures, and psychological mechanisms tied with adherence to concurrently employed NPIs and viral mitigation behaviours. The project is also part of the large international consortium (COVIDMENT) which is a collaboration across six nations. The candidate is expected to work with the full spectrum of the COVID-19 data, but with a special focus on longitudinal modeling, network analysis and the use of registry data.
