A 2 year postdoc position encompassing mental health in patients with inflammatory arthritis

Are you a highly motivated and dynamic nursing candidate with a PhD-degree, and a special interest in epidemiology and register based research? If so, you might be the one we are looking for to fill in a 2-year postdoc position in relation to a study encompassing mental health in patients with inflammatory arthritis.

Employment will be at the Department of Rheumatology, Aarhus University Hospital or Center for Rheumatology and Spine Diseases, Rigshospitalet-Glostrup, depending on preference of the successful applicants. The employment will include worktime at the two involved hospitals and the applicant must expect travel time to be included in the function.

Project description

In Denmark, approximately 80,000 people have inflammatory arthritis (IA) (50,000 with Rheumatoid Arthritis and 30,000 with Psoriatic Arthritis or axial Spondyloarthropathy). An increased risk of psychomorbidity, especially depression and anxiety has been observed in IA and appear to be associated with suboptimal self-management abilities. Disease related as well as socio-economic status and psychosocial factors seem to play a role. In this study, we aim to investigate the pathway between psychomorbidity and self-management. In addition, we want to explore the extent to which disease related factors, socio-economic status, social support and loneliness interact with these pathways.

The study encompasses two sub-studies:

  • A register-based cross-sectional study within the national clinical quality database, DANBIO, to evaluate the association between psychomorbidity and self-management in patients with IA, and the extent to which disease related factors, socio-economic factors, and social support and loneliness, interact with this association.
     
  • A qualitative study, to explore the perspectives on psychomorbidity and self-management ability in a selected group of patients, with high levels of depression and anxiety.
     

Our group and research

The study is part of the TASEMA project (TArgeted SElf-MAnagement in patients with inflammatory Arthritis) funded by the Novo Nordisk foundation 2020-2025. The steering group for TASEMA encompass Professor, RN, Bente Appel Esbensen (chair and head of programme manager); Professor, MD, Mikkel Østergaard; Associate professor, RN, Annette de Thurah, Associate professor, Psychologist, Julie Midtgaard; Associate professor, PT, Mette Aadahl and Professor, RN, Jette Primdahl.

The candidate will be supervised by the research group, and by persons with relevant competencies in relation to the methods and concepts applied. Associate professor, RN Annette de Thurah, Department of Rheumatology, Aarhus University Hospital, will be the overall responsible supervisor for the project. The successful applicant will be part of an established research group at the two involved hospitals.
