International Max Planck Research School on Computational Methods in Psychiatry and Ageing Research
COMP2PSYCH is an International Max Planck Research School, a graduate program sponsored by the Max Planck Society. The IMPRS COMP2PSYCH is part of the Max Planck UCL Centre for Computational Psychiatry and Ageing Research and combines and integrates training in computer science, applied mathematics and statistics, psychology, and psychiatry with the goal to enable fellows to adapt and develop computational and statistical tools according to their data-analytic and scientific needs in the fields of psychiatry and lifespan psychology.
The goal is to enable doctoral students to adapt and further develop computer-assisted and statistical methods according to scientific needs in the field of psychiatry and developmental psychology. Teaching fundamental concepts in cognitive science, lifespan psychology, and psychiatry in relation to computational and statistical theories and methods will create a superior degree of synergy between fields. In addition, the pre-doctoral fellows will benefit from the excellent research opportunities offered at both the Berlin and London sites.
The institutions involved in COMP2PSYCH are: the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, University College London, and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. The Research School targets post-diploma or post-master's graduate students who intend to pursue a doctorate in one of the relevant disciplines (computer science, applied mathematics and statistics, psychology, and psychiatry).
