Research Fellow in Mental Health
The applicant will be expected to lead their own research and to provide methodological support to others. A key priority for this post will be to build on the successful partnership between the University of Bristol and the NHS, via Avon Primary Care Research Collaborative, and to develop an externally funded research programme, at least some of which is conducted with Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.
The successful applicant will join the Centre for Academic Mental Health (CAMH) (http://www.bris.ac.uk/psychiatry/). The Centre brings together researchers working on mental health within the School of Social and Community Medicine (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/psychiatry/research/). We have an internationally recognised research programme funded by the MRC, NIHR, Wellcome Trust and other medical research charities. We are multidisciplinary and the researchers in the Centre include psychiatrists, epidemiologists, GPs, public health physicians, statisticians, psychologists and social scientists. Although the main focus of this post is research, you will also make a limited contribution to the School’s teaching programme.
Funding is available for 24 months and has been secured from APCRC A key priority for this post is to gain further research funding in partnership with local CCGs. There is the possibility of additional 12 months funding, subject to receipt of additional RCF funding by APCRC.
After the period of funding, it is anticipated that the postholder will be in an excellent position to apply for a senior research fellowship from NIHR or another funder (as we have an outstanding track record in supporting individuals to gain these awards), or to have attracted funding for their post through their externally funded research programme.
The University is committed to creating and sustaining a fully inclusive culture. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and communities.
