As part of its programme to provide postdoctoral research opportunities for scholars of proven academic excellence, University College Dublin is pleased to announce the National Cancer Control Programme (NCCP) Newman Fellowship in Psycho-oncology.

Background to project:

Research shows that patients with severe mental health difficulties, including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and major depressive disorder, have a similar rate of cancer diagnosis to the general population. However, they experience a higher mortality rate as a result of cancer. Individuals with severe mental health difficulty also present with more advanced cancer progression at diagnosis and often are not being offered bespoke treatment interventions which address their specific needs. Findings of research on barriers to cancer care for people with severe mental health difficulties in an Irish context revealed a need for specialised and bespoke cancer care for this cohort of patients at patient, healthcare system and policy levels. 

The Newman Fellow will be based in UCD School of Psychology and will work collaboratively with a close network of researchers from UCD and beyond. The Fellow will have the opportunity to assist in the design of a new clinical pathways and model of care to address the needs of oncology patients with severe mental health difficulties in Ireland.

Candidate details:

Applications are invited from candidates who hold a doctoral degree in Psychology. The successful applicant will have a strong track record of high-quality research and publication. Candidates must have completed and passed their doctoral examination before commencement of the post. The Fellowship is designed for a creative thinker, writer and researcher with a strong interest in inequity and mental health.

Candidates should be able to demonstrate the potential to make a real difference in our understanding of the factors that shape treatment for patients with SMHD in Ireland versus the difference in patients without SMHD. They will also need to provide evidence of the ability to work with material and ideas from several disciplines and have a strong grasp of current research on SMHD. Interest/experience in conducting empirical qualitative and/or quantitative research is desirable.

Competition details:

UCD supports an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policy for all its recruitment competitions.

The Newman Fellowship comes with a tax-free stipend of €35k p.a. and is tenable for two years.

The NCCP Newman Fellow in Psycho-oncology will work under the supervision and mentorship of Assoc Prof Paul D’Alton.
