Full time (36.5 hours per week) fixed term contract until 14 June 2024.
We will consider applications for employment on a part-time or other flexible working basis, even where a position is advertised as full-time, unless there are operational or other objective reasons why it is not possible to do so.
You will join the WMS Health and Wellbeing unit team to work on an exciting project developing a population-level sleep and mental health intervention for shift-workers in the workplace, designing and co-producing a programme with various stakeholders. You will work closely with other WMS research groups, colleagues from across the University of Warwick campus, and numerous external partners (including commercial and community organisations). You will be an active member of the research team and as such be required to take a leading role in facilitating co-production workshops with lived experience groups, businesses and charities. You will also help refine protocols, gain ethical approval, collect and analyse data, draft reports and contribute to scientific publications and bid writing.
You will possess a good honours degree (ideally 2.1 or above) in psychology or related discipline and a PhD in a relevant field. You will need to evidence experience of research in a field related to mental health and wellbeing. Experience in the areas of behavioural sleep medicine and / or intervention development is highly desirable. You will have potential to develop, deliver and publish high quality research and generate external funding to support the research projects.
In return, we will provide you with a great range of benefits, which include an attractive pension scheme, 30 days holiday plus Christmas closure, some fantastic savings on a wide range of products and services, and excellent learning and development opportunities. At WMS we are committed to supporting staff to achieve their potential. We aim to train the best talent, develop research capacity, and foster national and international collaborations, to seek to solve some of the world’s most pressing health problems. We continue to develop our large Graduate Entry Medicine (MBChB) course, as well as our Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses, alongside a broad research portfolio. We are proud to offer a range of initiatives and projects at WMS which encourage gender equality in the workplace, from mentoring and shadowing schemes to dedicated events, flexible working schemes and family spaces. Equal opportunity and support for all is a priority at WMS. We're committed to developing our work in line with the Athena SWAN charter, which you can find out more about.
If you are near submission or have recently submitted your PhD but have not yet had it conferred, any offers of employment will be made as Research Assistant at the top of level 5 of the University grade structure (£32,411). Upon receipt of evidence of the successful award of your PhD, you will be promoted to Research Fellow on the first point of level 6 of the University grade structure (£33,348).
