We are seeking a clinical psychologist to work on a new programme of research to develop and test a virtual reality cognitive treatment for needle fears in young people.

This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to an important programme of treatment development for young people that could have widespread use. The position would suit a clinical psychologist keen to apply cognitive theory and therapeutic techniques in the development of digital innovations for the mental health of young people, and who wishes to develop a clinical academic career.
