Advanced Research Fellowship in Suicide Prevention: Big Data Science Program (Colorado)

Denver/Aurora, Colorado (Non-Accredited)

The mission of the Rocky Mountain MIRECC Advanced Research Fellowship in Suicide Prevention: Big Data Science Program is to train data scientists and researchers in the high priority area of mental health care for Veterans, with an emphasis on prevention of risky behaviors among Veterans/military service members. Rocky Mountain MIRECC recognizes the rapid increase of data generated in the clinical setting and its potential to enhance our understanding of risk and its impact on patient care outcomes. This program seeks to leverage the VA data system to support clinically relevant, 2-year-long training and research opportunities in collaboration with VA researchers. The goal of the program is to train a new cadre of scientist that possess the skills to manage and analyze large-scale, multiple element patient data sets and to develop new models that complement existing methodologies in patient-centered outcomes with a focus on Veteran suicide risk and prevention research.

The Advanced Research Fellowship in Suicide Prevention: Big Data Science Program is currently accepting applications. Candidates are encouraged to apply and applications may be reviewed on a rolling basis until all positions are filled.
