The Research Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology is seeking to appoint an Assistant Professor/Lecturer  in Digital Mental Health  who has a special interest in digital mental health and its implication for the development and delivery of novel psychological interventions. This will be a joint appointment between the Departments of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology/ and the University College London Interaction Centre (UCLIC). The postholder will be expected to develop an internationally leading programme of research in the area of digital mental health.

The Departments have a strong interest in the development of novel psychological interventions and considerable research strengths in human-computer interaction, developmental psychopathology and treatment development and evaluation. Cross departmental and cross-faculty collaborations are encouraged and the university has significant strengths in cognitive neuroscience, psychiatry and computer science.

The Departments are part of UCL’s Division of Psychology and Language Sciences (PALS). Psychology at UCL was 2nd in the world in the Shanghai University Rankings. This reflects the excellent links between teaching, professional training and research within PALS, the wide range of research expertise represented within PALS and UCL more widely, and the excellent opportunities for collaboration and interdisciplinary research provided at UCL.

There are excellent links with the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, Department of Computer Science, the NHS, the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families and student mental health and well-being services. The University Clinic, recently established in collaboration with the NHS, provides an excellent setting for the development and evaluation of novel interventions.

Applicants must have a PhD in Psychology, or a related discipline, and clinically qualified applicants must have a clinical qualification in the field of mental health. The post-holder will be expected to undertake and encourage world-class research which enhances and/or extends the activities of UCL and to perform the normal administrative duties expected of a member of academic staff.
