About the Role

The Youth Resilience Unit (established 1 March 2021) within the Wolfson Institute of Population Health invites applications for two research assistants on a Barts Charity funded youth mental health project to examine resilience factors potentially linked to preventing and recovering from mental distress.

As part of this role, the successful candidates will be responsible for the organisation and enactment of research activities, the data management and analysis, and the dissemination of findings. This will entail establishing good communication with any collaborating partners, conducting research as laid out in five interlinked projects, and scientific analysis of the results. The post holder will also assist with drafting the required reports and publicising the activities and findings of the research group.

About You

Applicants should be qualified and committed to supporting data collection and analysis in a mental health research programme and study focused on young people (flexible age boundaries). The successful candidate should demonstrate a clear potential to facilitate and support the planning, organisation, and implementation of research, including experience with working in a research team, conducting trials and/or studies, and with data collection with young people. The successful candidates will be expected to work closely with colleagues in the Youth Resilience Unit, and also develop and sustain good working relationships with research partners and other collaborators (e.g., arts and youth organisations) in the UK.
