The successful candidate will play a key role in innovative studies investigating new approaches to treating schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
The studies involve the collection of clinical, immune and multimodal neuroimaging (MRI & PET & MEG) data and clinical assessment to determine response to treatment in patients. One of the studies involves a novel imaging approach to understand the mechanism underlying psychosis with potential to develop a therapeutic trial.
Working closely with the Lead Investigators, the successful candidate will ensure the successful conduct and completion of the research programme. He/she will contribute to the collection and analysis of data, and play a key role in the assessment and monitoring of patients, which will constitute clinical sessions and may count towards training. He/she will also work closely with other research staff in the project and foster effective collaborative working relationships with the local early intervention services for psychosis. The successful candidate will also be encouraged to develop their own research interests.
The group conducts research into the role and interactions of a number of brain systems in processes relevant to mental disorders and their treatment, and the post-holder may also contribute to these studies as well.
The post would be ideal for a clinician with an interest in cutting edge neuroimaging and psychopharmacology. There is potential to develop a project for an MD/ PhD for a suitable candidate.
Please note that both a medical degree and GMS registration are essential requirements for this role.
