Looking for innovative early-stage researchers to join research initiative on children's mental health
Are you interested in contributing to novel, ground-breaking solutions in mental health of children? We, the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft (LBG), an
Austrian research organisation, are looking for open minds who want to join our Open Innovation in Science initiative. We are currently searching for
motivated and ambitious early stage researchers who are interested in working across boundaries and joining interdisciplinary networked Research Groups focusing on challenges in mental health of children. For more information, please refer to http://www.lbg.ac.at/de/themen/ideas-lab-mental-health-children-and-adolescents.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Julia Schober.
Webinar: Research Groups on Mental Health for Children

To address the questions of the interested potential applicants and to provide further details about the initiative, LBG will organise a Webinar on 15 February 2017 at 16:00 (CET). We would like to invite you and interested potential candidates to join this event. The webinar will explain in more detail about the novel approach adopted to establish research groups via an interactive, free-thinking workshop - the Ideas Lab. After a video presentation, there will be time for Q&A. You can find details of how to register for the Webinar below:

Alternatively, you can join by phone: https://zoom.us/zoomconference?m=YphglHXoB2ug0PiGvaMs1W-fA6cjRQlZ
Webinar ID: 968 194 863
We are looking forward to your presence and questions!

The application for the Ideas Lab will close on 8 March 2017, so there are only 4 weeks left to recommend candidates and submit applications. 

For further information, please find a short description of the initiative below. You can also find information on our website: http://www.ideaslab.lbg.ac.at/

We are currently preparing the setup of novel networked Research Groups of LBG focusing on mental health in children and adolescents with a particular interest in children of mentally ill parents. These groups, which will be hosted by Austrian universities, should not only deliver excellent research results in this new and currently under-researched area, but also aim to form truly interdisciplinary teams, which have the ambition to impact society and generate knowledge with high relevance for patients, caregivers, and their families. In order to set up these groups successfully, LBG will support the teams with its expertise in Open Innovation in Science (please find more information on www.openinnovationinscience.at) and by that with methods how to work purposefully across boundaries, e.g. involve communities and crowds into scientific work. Please find more information about this new research initiative and how to apply here.

Therefore, we are currently looking for excellent experienced researchers (up to 8 years after doctorate or equivalent experience), who have the skills and motivation to be part of this unique initiative. We are interested in people from a broad range of disciplines who have either already done excellent research on mental health of children and/or adults or come from other relevant areas which could contribute in novel ways to this topic. They should be ambitious team players, willing to work across boundaries and make a difference by their work.

We are interested to learn about potential candidates for this initiative.
Furthermore, I would be very grateful if you could forward my email to additional experts from your network with a competence in the above area.
