Psychology research assistant

Introduction 

This is an exciting opportunity for very good psychology graduates (2.1 or above) to gain experience of research and to work with a clinical population group as part of this research. It is a post which requires much skill and autonomy and previous ex-perience of research is preferred. It may appeal to graduates looking to apply for clinical psychology training or junior researchers who would like more autonomy and/or experience working with qualitative material and direct patient contact. 

The project involves the development and manualisation of an innovative group in-tervention for people with learning disabilities and psychiatric diagnoses. It is ex-pected that group members will be integral in the production of this ‘manual’ and thus experience working with similar patient groups and a keen interest in mental health and disability issues are desired. 

While the work is primarily research based there is much scope for client and carer contact and for clinical supervision of this contact. 

 

Duties 

The psychology/research assistant will be based at St. George’s Medical School. The post is funded for one year from September 2016, for one day a week. Some travel may be required to visit families and to attend external consultation/supervision sessions. 

Primarily, the post holder will need to conduct literature searches, co-design re-search materials, conduct interviews and focus groups, and participate in the anal-ysis of both quantitative data and qualitative material. 

 

Key Relationships 

The post holder will be under the supervision and guidance of a Clinical Psychologist and Art Therapist. They will also receive consultative supervision from other expe-rienced therapists. 

 

Person Specification 

The post holder will have a strong interest in qualitative research and be keen to develop this further. He/she will be highly organized, autonomous, an excellent and adaptive communicator: able to discuss difficult topics, and make complex infor-mation accessible. 

The post holder will have an academic interest in evaluations, education/training and service development. The post holder will have a clinical interest in working with otherwise hard to engage and marginalised groups. 

 

Application process 

* Applications, in the form of a letter accompanied by a CV, should focus on the requirements of the role detailed above and should include evidence of relevant experience in relation to the role. Applications should be submitted via email to (Dr PJ Manners), (email: pman-ners@sgul.ac.uk) by Thursday 1st September 5pm
