There links between experiences of higher education/employment and mental health among today’s young adults are poorly understood – evidence is desperately needed to inform policy and support young people. In this exciting project, the student will carry out research training using genetic, questionnaire and clinic data on over 30,000 UK individuals, and gain understanding of population health research, specifically social epidemiology.
