Research Assistant / Research Associate
We have an exciting and challenging opportunity for a Research Assistant/Associate (depending on qualifications and experience) to contribute to and oversee an innovative and multi-disciplinary 4-year research project focused on supporting the positive mental health of Kenyan and Mozambican adolescents during pregnancy and early motherhood. Using a human-centred, systems-thinking approach, we will partner with adolescents, their families and other key stakeholders to develop and pilot test mental health interventions. Our goal is to design effective, scalable and sustainable interventions aligned with young women’s needs and priorities.
The project is funded through a UK Research and Innovation Future Leaders Fellowship held by Dr Tatiana Salisbury. The successful candidate will work directly with Dr Salisbury and be responsible for contributing to the design of research activities, and overseeing project set-up, implementation and knowledge exchange activities. They will work closely with research, design, government and community partners in the UK, Kenya and Mozambique.
The post is based within the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King’s College London but will require occasional travel for meetings in Europe and Africa. While in post you will be supported to engage in research training and career development activities and take advantage of other opportunities within the department and across the College.
