This post is an exciting opportunity for a postdoctoral level researcher to contribute to a collaborative project utilising quantitative analytical methods to determine the prognosis and burden of physical long term conditions (LTCs) and multimorbidity among young adults with mental disorders using linked routine clinical data. The post holder will lead on public engagement activities related to the study, presenting findings at national and international conferences, and write up papers with key collaborators. The role holder will have the opportunity to develop their own research ideas for external funding and utilise the findings from the earlier work to inform future external funding bids to ultimately better understand and prevent LTCs in people with mental disorders. They will be offered the opportunity to teach, and supported to develop an independent research profile, to explore future collaborations with colleagues across the IoPPN and elsewhere, and to apply for further funding to extend the post.
This post will be offered for a two-year period
