The main purpose of this post is to undertake high-quality research within the ESRC-funded Centre for Society and Mental Health at King’s College London. The Centre is a cross-Faculty initiative between the Faculty of Social Science and Public Policy (SSPP) and the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN).
You will work closely with Prof. Ben Geiger and Prof. Karen Glaser as part of the Centre’s ‘Work, Welfare Reform and Mental Health’ programme, collaborating closely with an interdisciplinary team of researchers as well as the Centre’s academic and community partners. Your responsibilities will include carrying out original analysis of large quantitative datasets to (i) investigate the link between the changing nature of work and mental health, and (ii) conduct other research within our strategic priorities (including inter alia the effect of welfare reforms on mental health, the assessment of work capacity, work-welfare interactions, and/or poverty & the cost of living). Some analyses will require advanced longitudinal research and data management skills; other analyses may involve advanced quasi-experimental evaluation designs or policy-relevant descriptive analysis across multiple datasets.
In addition, you will be supported to develop independent research, including fellowship applications, under the supervision of the programme leads, explore collaborations with others to support in the development of further externally funded research, publish papers in internationally recognized peer-reviewed journals, and to present at national and international events.
The post holder will also have opportunities to contribute to teaching and service within both the Centre and in the Department of Global Health & Social Medicine. This may include undertaking occasional lectures to undergraduate and postgraduate students in their specialist area, helping develop training courses in the Centre, and assisting with the supervision of Masters and PhD students.
This post will be offered on a fixed term contract until 31st December 2024 in the first instance, with the view to extend funding permitting.
This is a full-time post.
Interviews will convene mid/late October.
