Clinical research in Psychiatry

This is an excellent opportunity for a postgraduate candidate with strong research and organisational skills to develop their expertise in psychiatry research in the area of gambling disorder and related impulsive-compulsive conditions. Applications are invited from enthusiastic early-stage researchers to join the research team, who are medically registered with the GMC, have completed a PhD, and have undertaken some degree of training on a UK deanery/HEE (or equivalent) approved psychiatry training programme.
