We are seeking to appoint a graduate starting a career in research to carry out and help to develop studies of neuromodulation in people with depression. Neuromodulation is a new group of treatments that involve small electric or magnetic currents applied to the brain to lift people out of depression. The research team is investigating whether they are effective for depression and how they work. These studies are exploring the feasibility of additional studies using these treatments with a view to making further grant applications.
The post will require the role holder to travel extensively within Nottingham and surrounding areas.

Candidates must hold a 2:1 or higher degree or a 2:2 degree with a master's in health, psychology or related field. Experience with people who have mental health problems, an interest in helping people with depression, the ability to search research literature, set up and analyse databases and work in multidisciplinary teams are essential.
The post will be offered on a part-time (21.75 hours per week) fixed-term basis for a period of 2 years. Job share arrangements may be considered for this post. The post may involve occasional travel to other sites.
Interviews will be held on Tuesday 14 January 2020.
