We are looking to appoint a part-time (60% FTE) Research Assistant to join a Prudence Trust funded research project, led by Dr Lucy Foulkes, examining potential harms from mental health interventions in secondary schools.

The post is for a fixed term (funded for two years).

You will have an undergraduate degree in psychology (2:1 or 1st class), along with experience of setting up and managing large databases. You will have excellent communication skills and experience of analysing quantitative data (e.g. using SPSS or R). A specialist knowledge of and interest in adolescent mental health is essential.
You will be required to upload a covering letter/supporting statement and a CV as part of your application.
