Research Assistant - 2 posts

Department of Experimental Psychology, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, Woodstock Road

The Oxford Cognitive Approaches to Psychosis (O-CAP) clinical psychology research group led by Prof Daniel Freeman develops, tests, and implements new theory-driven psychological treatments for patients with psychosis.

We wish to appoint two research assistants to help conduct several new exciting randomised controlled trials, including Feeling Safer, Sleeping Better, and Phoenix. These comprise a range of face-to-face and digital cognitive-behavioural interventions.

These posts are fixed-term, full time for 12 months (from August 2024) in the first instance, but there are likely to be opportunities to extend.

The posts will provide excellent experience of clinically relevant research and would suit a person interested in going on to either clinical psychology training or further research. Experience will be gained of engaging and assessing patients diagnosed with psychosis, NHS services, clinical trials methodology, and clinical psychology research. You would join a large clinical psychology research group comprising clinical psychologists, other research assistants, psychology assistants, project and trial managers, and computer scientists.

With a psychology degree (2:1 or above), you will have an interest in the psychological understanding and treatment of psychosis. Participants will be seen in clinic settings or at home across a large geographical area. Although some appointments will take place locally, there is likely to be extensive travel which would be facilitated by having valid driving licence, and access to own or other independent means of transport.

The closing date for applications is midday on 24th June 2024. It is anticipated that interviews will be held on18th July.

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online and you will be required to upload a supporting statement, CV and details of two referees. Your supporting statement should include how you meet the selection criteria for the post.
