The School of Psychology is looking to recruit a post-doctoral research fellow to join an interdisciplinary research project funded by the Wellcome Trust on sleep and mental health (RESTED: REbalancing circadian rhythms in Sleep and heart rate To Ease Dissociative symptoms).

Over 3 years this project investigates the relationship between sleep and circadian rhythm disruptions and symptoms of dissociation, anxiety, depression and psychosis. The three phases of the project are to: (1) analyse an existing longitudinal dataset, (2) collect a novel micro-longitudinal dataset with wearable devices and experience-sampling methodology, and (3) to test and evaluate interventions to improve sleep and dissociative symptoms via heart rate (variability).

The post-holder will be part of a wider team including 3 other post-doctoral researchers (at the University of Essex) as well as collaborating with our broader team of computer scientists, lived-experience experts, mental health practitioners, epidemiologists, statisticians, clinicians and business partners.

The postholder will be supervised by Dr. Giulia Poerio in the School of Psychology, and will take an active role in the design, preparation of materials, data collection, analysis, and dissemination.

Successful candidates should have completed, or be near to completing, a PhD in Psychology, and should be proficient in advanced statistical methods, especially those involved in analysis of longitudinal data. A background with experience-sampling methodology and/or intervention studies is desirable.

Please contact Dr. Giulia Poerio (g.l.poerio@sussex.ac.uk) for informal enquiries.
