Applications are invited from outstanding early career researchers wishing to establish an independent career through their first academic position. The post is funded by the NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) and the successful applicants will work with a large interdisciplinary team of scientists to deliver the translational and experimental medicine remit of the Maudsley BRC.

This is an exciting opportunity for interdisciplinary researchers to join a world leading research centre in mental health. We wish to attract scientists from across the range of disciplines that can be brought to bear on the challenges of translating basic research into patient benefit. These disciplines include (but are not limited to) biology and genetics, informatics and computer science, psychology, neuroscience, epidemiology and social science.  We particularly encourage scientists who have already worked in an interdisciplinary setting.

Along with a passion for mental health research, the successful candidates will have expertise and an emerging research track record in an area closely aligned to one or more of the Maudsley BRC’s four strategic priorities:

  • Precision psychiatry
  • Novel therapies
  • Translational informatics
  • Interface between physical and mental health

While funded by the NIHR Maudsley BRC, each post-holder will hold a substantive academic contract with King’s College London, within one of the academic departments of the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & NeuroscienceDepartmental affiliation will be agreed on appointment.

Please note, the NIHR does not fund research involving animals, and these posts would not be suitable for researchers who wish to conduct research using such methods.

Closing date: Sunday 3rd December (23:59 GMT)

Interviews are scheduled to take place during either week commencing 22nd or 29th January 2018 (day to be confirmed).  Shortlisted candidates will be notified by Monday 8th January.
