Clinical Research Fellow

University of Glasgow - Research Institute of Health and Wellbeing

College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences

This is a fixed term (45 months fte) Clinical Lectureship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry tenable in the School/Institute of Health and Wellbeing. Suitable applicants will hold MRCPsych (UK)/or equivalent and will have completed general professional training in psychiatry. The successful candidate will be appointed at the level of Specialist/Specialty Registrar and will enter the West of Scotland Higher Specialty Training Programme.

Applicants must already have a national training number at the time of taking up the post therefore this post may be offered conditionally pending successful Higher Trainee interview outcome.

The post will be based within the Institute of Health and Wellbeing in West Glasgow, currently on the Yorkhill Campus with a plan to move to a new Institute facility at the Western Infirmary in 3-4 years time. For training and research purposes rotation to other clinical units or departments may be required.

Clinical training will be a major focus of the Lectureship in order to ensure the appointee can successfully complete his/her CCT.

We strongly recommend that the successful candidate registers for a PhD, if not already in possession of one. Within the University of Glasgow PhD programme, training will be offered in statistics, study design, writing for publication and other core academic skills. Other specialist training opportunities are available within the School/Institute including qualitative research, systematic reviewing of the literature, epidemiology and modules on specific statistical analysis packages such as STATA.
