Dear EFPSA Community,

The Board is excited to announce that the Call for Coordinator and Researchers for EFPSA’s Mental ESCAPE Health Project is now open!

What is the Mental ESCAPE Health Project?

Mental ESCAPE health Project is an Erasmus+ funded international project consisting of the associates Waldritter, Learning Designers, RUSIHAK, EFQuBL, APICE and EFPSA. Mental ESCAPE will create escape rooms (2 pop-ups and at least one digital) as experiential educational tools on the topic of mental health issues such as addiction and depression. The project aims to raise awareness on the issues of addiction and depression, approach sensitivity and empathy on mental health in society, and build the capacity of youth workers on the use of experiential learning processes and gamification of youth empowerment. Our involvement in this project would be in the form of a research collaboration, where we would provide our expertise on the topic of mental health to develop the Escape rooms.

 

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for one Coordinator and two Project Researchers that have a well-developed interest in the topic of Mental Health and research surrounding the topics of youth depression and gambling dependency. The candidates should be enrolled in a master’s degree in psychology, a doctoral or postdoctoral degree in psychology (or graduated from one of these three degrees within the last 2 years). These individuals will be active in their roles for three years, therefore we are looking for individuals ready to commit to an interesting and creative project. The main responsibilities of the team will be to create evidence-based elements and a script for escape rooms, therefore we highly recommend that the applicants have research skills and experience. Before filling in the application form be sure to read the role description documents for more details about the project and your responsibilities. See more about the project in the presentation.

Application process:

This project is an opportunity for psychology students to work in an interdisciplinary and international environment, an opportunity to express your creativity and develop your research skills.
