About the role:

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a new Wellcome Trust funded Discovery Award to examine prediction of clinical outcome in anxiety. A key psychological mechanism that maintains anxiety is the tendency to generate negative interpretations of unclear or ambiguous information (known as interpretation bias). We have developed a novel online intervention using cognitive bias modification of interpretations (CBM-I) to ‘train’ people with anxiety problems to develop a more helpful cognitive bias to generate positive interpretations, which effectively reduces anxiety. In the current project we will use cognitive, genetic, clinical and demographic information to predict outcome at the end of the CNM-I intervention and at follow up.

Specifically, in this project we will adapt and tailor the intervention for people suffering from anxiety who have different ethnic identities. The research programme will involve a large-scale study to examine prediction of individuals’ outcome from a course of CBM-I. The study will recruit 4300 anxious people to complete CBM-I intervention used by Hirsch et al 2021.

The successful candidate will have excellent project management skills including ability to organise and motivate others. They will have excellent communication and presentation skills, and will demonstrate flair, enthusiasm, innovation and leadership when faced with challenges. Their role will be to provide strategic, tactical and operational management input in the planning and execution of the project. They will help refine the intervention prior to the large-scale experiment. They will take a lead role in write-up and contribute to a range of other dissemination activities, as well as the set-up, running and closure of the large-scale clinical study. The successful candidate will be part of the wider Wellcome Discovery award team at KCL, as well as Prof Colette Hirsch’s Cognition in Emotional Disorders and Resilience group, at the Department of Psychology. They will work closely with other members of the grant award team, particularly those within the Emotional Development, Intervention and Treatment (EDIT) Lab led by Prof Thalia Eley in the Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Centre.
