The Anxiety and Depression in Young people (AnDY) research clinic provides evidence-based, low intensity psychological treatments for children and young people alongside clinical research in the clinic and community. We are looking for an enthusiastic Clinical Psychologist with an interest in research to join the AnDY adolescent depression team.

The post holder will support a research study evaluating the feasibility and effectiveness of delivering brief, low intensity interventions in secondary schools for students experiencing low mood and/or anxiety symptoms. The project also involves school surveys of emotional health and may include brief psychological input for school staff and parents in the final phase of the study. The post holder will join a growing and dynamic team of Research Clinical Psychologists, Child and Young people Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners (CY-PWPs), researchers and students.
