You will join an interdisciplinary, international team conducting groundbreaking methodological development for youth mental health research. You will be based at the prestigious Institute for Health and Neurodevelopment at Aston University. You will carry out recruitment, qualitative data collection, qualitative data analysis, co-production and methodological development work.

You will work under the supervision of Dr Michael Larkin and collaborate with a wide range of people, including the research team, young people, other researchers, funders, and mental health practitioners. 

About you: 

You will be able to demonstrate good knowledge of, and experience with, qualitative research methods; excellent communication skills; an interest in other people’s experiences; an ability to apply the principles of best practice for coproduction and PPI (public and patient involvement in research), and a commitment to improving mental healthcare provision for young people.

About the project:

In this MRC-funded project, we will build a new methodology that combines different forms of data collection (research interviews and video-recorded clinical encounters) and analysis (experiential and interactional), whilst involving young people in the process. The new methodology will help us to understand young people’s subjective experiences of the mental health system. We will produce a clear guide about how to involve young people with lived experience on mental healthcare in qualitative data analysis.

The successful candidate is required to have clearance to work with children from the DBS (The Disclosure and Barring Service).
