Dear all,

I am writing to highlight a PhD opportunity at the University of Manchester, supervised by me, Dr Matthew Sperrin and Prof Sandra Bucci. The title of the project is "Methodology to develop prognostic models for symptom exacerbation in early psychosis through digital interventions".

In brief, the project will analyse data collected through digital interventions (a smartphone app) for patients with psychosis, to develop clinical prediction models that can predict: 1) app engagement and its influence on clinical outcomes; and 2) prediction of relapse in early psychosis patients. Additionally, one challenge of digital interventions is "app fatigue", whereby the number of alerts generated lead to a reduction in engagement. Thus, the PhD will also explore developing models that can ensure alerts are only generated when absolutely necessary for an individual patient.

Further details, including details on how to apply, can be found here:

Deadline for applications is Friday 15 November 2019, 5pm.

Kind regards

Dr Glen Martin, PhD | Lecturer in Health Data Sciences
