Postdoctoral Researcher: The Oxford Psychological Interventions for Children and adolescents (TOPIC)

Department of Psychiatry, Warneford Hospital, Oxford OX3 7JX

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Researcher post on an exciting National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) funded project that focuses on implementing a novel ‘identification-to-intervention' approach for anxiety problems through primary schools.

The post is based in the Department of Experimental Psychology in the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter in Oxford. The post is full-time.

The post is for a fixed term (12 months).

The team are currently running a large trial to evaluate procedures for screening for anxiety problems in primary schools and providing parents with online and telephone support. If the trial shows this is an effective approach, our hope is that Mental Health Support Teams could work with schools to implement the ‘identification-to-intervention' approach in routine practice.

This new project will use qualitative and co-production methods to identify adaptations we need to make to our ‘identification-to-intervention' procedures and create materials and resources for delivery through Mental Health Support Teams.

You will lead stakeholder consultations, participant recruitment, interviews/focus groups, qualitative analysis, and co-production meetings. The post will involve working closely with study investigators and a range of collaborators, including school and parent representatives.

You will hold or be close to completion of a relevant PhD/DPhil together with some relevant experience. You will have specialist knowledge of child mental health, qualitative methods and co-production methods and experience using qualitative methods in psychological research. Excellent communication skills are essential, including the ability to communicate with a range of groups, represent the team at meetings, and write for publication.

The role will require some travel in England for recruitment and data collection activities and there may be times when it is necessary to work some irregular hours.

You will be required to upload a supporting statement and a CV as part of your application.

The closing date for the post is midday on 23rd February 2024.
