ARC Wessex is looking for a ECR to support the ESRC-funded study on ‘Young people’s barriers to mental health services’. This is an exciting opportunity for you to join the University of Southampton, a leading university for Health Sciences research, ranked in the top 3 UK universities in the overall quality of our research, with our research environment scoring top marks (REF 2021).
The project aims to explore the characteristics and life-experiences of those young people with emotional mental health problems not using formal mental health services. Health care data linked to cohort data from Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children and the Longitudinal Study of Young People in England will be accessed. Due to attrition and sporadic non-response a missing-not-at-random methodology will be employed to analyse this data.
You will have the opportunity to extend your experience in missing data analysis methods, mental health research, secondary analysis with linked data, and collaborating with experts with lived experiences. As well as cleaning and analysing the linked prospective cohort data, you will be presenting the findings at stakeholder conferences and meetings, and contribute to writing primary papers. You will work at a computer terminal accessing secure data in the central office of the ARC Wessex, an NIHR funded centre supporting applied health and care research. The project will be part of the vibrant and multidisciplinary portfolio of ARC Wessex, providing you with opportunity to network with local and national ARC colleagues. In addition, you will be able to attend local and national workshops, meetings, and conferences.
We welcome applications from individuals who have a passion for making a difference. You will have a PhD (or be nearing completion) and strong background in statistics, mental health research and/or experience working with prospective cohort studies. It is desirable that you have completed some form of ‘safe researcher’ training, although this could be obtained upon appointment. Ability to explain complex research methods and statistics to a lay audience would be much appreciated.
We offer some fantastic benefits including generous annual leave, company pension scheme, discounted private healthcare and dental, company sick pay, options for flexible working, excellent family leave arrangements, a wide variety of on and off-campus arts and culture facilities, subsidised health and fitness facilities and access to a range of staff discounts and offers at local shops, restaurants and service providers.
