We are seeking of an outstanding and enthusiastic individual with an interest in stasistics/data science, epidemiology (enviromental), and population mental health research to work on an exciting programme of inter-disciplinary research funded by Wellcome. The first aim of the research is to explore the impacts of extreme ambient heat and other environmental stressors on the mental health of urban communities. The second aim is to investigate the possible mitigation of these impacts by different types of urban green spaces.
The post will be based across two departments; Health Service and Population Research Department (HSPR) and Department of Psychosis Studies. The post is initially available for 12 months (Grade 6) from January 2024 or as soon as possible thereafter. The Research Associate will join a multidisciplinary team of public mental health researchers, epidemiologists, biostatisticians, psychologists, data scientists, envriomental exposure modellers, database managers from the two departments.
The post provide an excellent opportunity to design, analyse and interpret findings from rich datasets from large prospective cohort studies, including electronic medical records and smartphone-based measures, in a world-class environment. The post-holder will be involved in a wide range of activities within research contexts that span environmental epidemiology, statistics and formal quasi-experimental evaluation studies.
The posts involve the use of existing clinical and research databases, and the post-holder will need to work closely with staff in the relevant organisations (for example, the information technology departments of each partner NHS Trust and the South London and Maudsley/IoPPN Biomedical Research Centre.)
Expertise in programming for efficient statistical analysis and data management would be expected. The post-holders would be encouraged to participate in the wider academic programme of both the Health Service & Population Research Department and the Department of Psychosis Studies and the Department of Biostatistics and Health Informatics.
We would welcome applications from researchers who themselves have experience of using health services.
The posts will be located at the IoPPN, King’s College London, Denmark Hill Campus, De Crespigny Park, London SE5 8AF.
This post will be offered on a full-time, fixed term contract for 12 months from January 2024.
