Job description

We are appointing for 3 Research Associates to work on a national Mental Health Policy Research Unit.  These 3 posts provide an exciting opportunity for enthusiastic Research Associates to conduct mental health research that addresses key policy gaps and supports policy makers in developing nationwide mental health service plans.   
 
We are looking for 3 highly motivated researchers who are either: (1) post-doctoral researchers (or close to completion of a PhD programme), or (2) experienced mental health researchers with significant experience as a researcher on mental health research projects.
 
The successful candidates will join the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Mental Health Policy Research Unit (MHPRU). The MHPRU was established in 2017 and is led by two world-leading universities: University College London and King’s College London. It works to make evidence and expert views available to policymakers in a timely way and to carry out research that is directly useful to inform policy.  Our recent work includes research on the remote delivery of care during the COVID-19 pandemic, the impact of COVID-19 on mental health services and research on community mental health care for people who have been assigned a personality disorder diagnosis. 
 
You will work closely with Prof Alan Simpson, Co-Director of the MHPRU and Professor of Mental Health Nursing, and Dr Kylee Trevillion, Deputy Director of the MHPRU and Senior Lecturer in Mental Health Services Research, joining a multidisciplinary team of applied mental health researchers across King’s College London, UCL, and other UK universities.
 
The successful post-holders will be mixed-methods researchers in public health, psychology, psychiatry, nursing, or other relevant disciplines. They should have experience of using both qualitative and quantitative research methods in an applied health research context, and experience of conducting systematic reviews. Experience of co-production and/or working collaboratively with service users is highly desirable, as is experience of implementation science methods. The successful candidates will have the opportunity to contribute to research that is directly relevant to mental health policy and service provision, a competitive salary and annual leave entitlement, and access to training courses to support their personal and training development. 
 
Follow @MentalHealthPRU on Twitter for more information about what we do.
 
These 3 posts will be offered on a fixed-term contract until 31.12.2023 
There are options for the posts to be full-time, part-time and/or as a job share.
