Paid internship as Research Assistant at NIHR Maudsley BRC for the RADAR-CNS study

Are you excited about Translational Mental Health?

Then you could have the chance to apply for a paid internship as Research Assistant at King’s College London’s Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience.

All in all, 14 Research Assistant posts are advertised as part of a scheme aiming to recruit individuals from under-represented ethnic backgrounds.

One of these posts will be based in Psychological Medicine under the supervision of Matthew Hotopf (Director of the BRC, Vice Dean for Research IoPPN & member of Neuronet’s Scientific Coordination Board). The postholder will be part of a highly collegiate and supportive team which is focused on bridging the gaps between mental and physical health.

One project, RADAR-CNS is a study assessing whether signals from smartphones and wearable devices (e.g. Fitbits) can inform us about the state of someone’s health – specifically depression. In another project they are testing whether an on-line peer support platform can improve wellbeing and prevent depression in people with long term conditions.

The post could potentially include: participant recruitment, data handling (cleaning, analysis), qualitative research (e.g. focus groups), systematic reviews and help with writing up manuscripts for publication. The postholder will fit into a team of research assistants, PhD students, clinical fellows, postdocs and academic staff. The post will be carefully supported to identify the career aspirations of the intern and develop a programme of work for them which fits those ambitions.
