The Dutch science funder NWO released information on the Mosaic 2.0 PhD scholarship aimed at the under-represented group of graduates with a migration background from Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Central and South America and Turkey in the Netherlands. To qualify for the program, among other criteria, you need to 1) have a migration background; 2) a Dutch passport or residence permit; and 3) obtained either a bachelor’s or a master’s degree in the Netherlands.

I am looking for one or two more PhD students, so if you’d like to work with me and our team, please check the criteria and feel free to reach out if your work aligns with what we’re doing in the team. You can find information on my work here. In particular, I’m interested in students who would like to work with the WARN-D data we have collected in the last few years, a unique dataset mental health dataset that offers tons of opportunities for interesting theoretical, statistical and empirical work. The dataset has around 1750 participants, and a wide battery of 2 years of data, of which 3 months are detailed smartwatch and smartphone data. You can find the protocol of the WARN-D study for which we collected the data online, and more detailed codebooks here. Information about the study generally is available on our dedicated website.

One specific project I’m particularly interested in is menstruation related — we have daily information on menstruation as part of our EMA data, for around 1400 women for around 3 months per person, together with tons of mental health and affected-related data, pain, context information, and so on. This has to be one of the largest datasets on the topic, and would easily support a PhD project. If you have other ideas, do feel free to reach out, too! You can find more on our team & lab here.
