The Developmental Risk and Resilience Unit (DRRU) is part of UCL’s Division of Psychology and Language Sciences – the largest and highest ranking psychology department in the UK, undertaking world-leading research and teaching across the area of mind, behaviour and language. The central aim of our research is to better understand mechanisms of developmental vulnerability and resilience. This project is funded by an MRC grant “Prosocial Behaviour in Children with Conduct Problems: Investigating Putative Cognitive-Affective Mechanisms and their Malleability”, awarded to Professor Essi Viding.

About the role

Your role will primarily involve data cleaning and preparation of data for publication, as well as leading final data collection and dissemination of project findings. You will also be expected to travel to schools in London and South-East of England to conduct the screening and testing of adolescent participants using a battery of questionnaires and experimental measures.

An Enhanced DBS clearance is required for this position. This role is eligible for hybrid working, dependent on the project schedule and needs. However, it is anticipated that the majority of the work will be conducted on-site.

This is a 12-month fixed-term role in the first instance, with a start date of 1st September 2024. The salary is fixed at Grade 6B, Spinal Point 25 (£37,332 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance). This position does not meet the eligibility requirements for a Skilled Worker Visa sponsorship under UK Visas and Immigration legislation. Therefore, UCL will not be able to sponsor individuals who require a right to work in the UK to carry out this role.

About you

The ideal candidate would have:

  • Excellent interpersonal skills to establish good relationships with young people, families and professions, and communicate well with the wider project team.
  • An undergraduate degree in psychology or neuroscience at 2:1 or above.
  • 1+ years of research experience, working with children/adolescents with behavioural difficulties.
  • Experience of participant recruitment.
