We have a fantastic opportunity for a Research Assistant to contribute to a project Wellcome funded CONNECT study working Professor Andrew Gumley as part of the Psychosis Research Group within the School of Health and Wellbeing.
The CONNECT study will recruit individuals with psychosis and use a smartphone with app and wearables to actively and passively collect data in a prospective observational cohort study. We will use these data to develop and validate a personalised risk prediction algorithm for relapse. Additionally, we want to maximise engagement and information obtained from digital remote monitoring by asking the right questions, at the right frequency and time.
The post-holder will also be a member of the School of Health and Wellbeing, in the University of Glasgow. The successful candidate will work within the agreed protocols for the CONNECT study and, as an employee of the University Glasgow, will adhere to local policies, procedures and codes of practice.
Recruitment for the project will be based initially in the catchment areas of NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde. You will need to have excellent communication and liaison skills as they will be required to promote the study locally, and recruit from mental health services and with organisations which people with psychotic experiences use as well as promote engagement and retention of recruited participants.
We welcome applications from candidates who hold SCQF Level 10 (Honours degree) in a relevant subject or a cognate discipline, or equivalent.
