We are seeking a full time Research Assistant to ensure the efficient day to day co-ordination of an ambitious MRC-funded trial to evaluate Internet-delivered Cognitive Therapy (iCT) for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in adolescents.

In partnership with a software development company, we have built a smartphone App and website to deliver Cognitive Therapy for PTSD.  The next stage in this project is to evaluate the new iCT App in a pilot three-arm Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) comparing iCT to face-to-face Cognitive Therapy and to a Waiting List. 

The post-holder will ensure the efficient day to day co-ordination of the RCT, under the direction of the Project Manager and Investigators. This will include: managing recruitment across three sites, liaison with the Clinical Trials Unit at King’s, assisting with baseline trial assessments, ensuring pre post and follow-up data collection via questionnaires and qualitative interviews with young people and carers, and taking responsibility for accurate and timely data entry.  There will also be opportunities to assist in the work of a specialist NHS clinic for young people with PTSD. 

This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to an innovative project in a fast-growing area.

The post would suit a talented psychology graduate who has experience of research, an interest in developing their research skills, and knowledge of E-therapy in young people.

The salary will be paid at Grade 5, £31,883 to £33,618 per annum, inclusive of £3,223 per annum London Allowance.

This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for 2 years.

This is a full-time post - 100% full time equivalent.

The selection process will include a panel interview and an assessment task related to data entry and management.

Interviews are scheduled to take place on 23 July 2019 at the Denmark Hill campus.

Closing date: Midnight on 8 July 2019
