We are seeking to appoint a research assistant to work on a new project supporting a multi-centre randomised controlled trial of a Standardised Diagnostic Assessment tool for children and adolescents with emotional difficulties; the STADIA Trial.


The project, led by Professor Kapil Sayal, will focus on children and adolescents with significant levels of emotional difficulties (such as anxiety or depression) who have been referred to Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) for specialist help. The role holder will work closely with researchers and clinicians from a range of universities and NHS trusts, including the Nottingham Clinical Trials Unit (NCTU), to help complete the study. Your main responsibilities will include travelling throughout the region to support recruitment of participants from CAMHS and to collect trial and outcome data from records or via telephone interviews. You will also work closely with the STADIA Trial Manager to help complete the study, for example liaising with national study sites, supporting a range of Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) activities and promotion of the study (e.g. at PPI groups and relevant clinical and academic forums).


Candidates must have a good first degree in psychology, health or social science related discipline (or equivalent) and an understanding of the principles of clinical trials, as well as excellent interpersonal skills. Strong research skills (quantitative and qualitative) and experience of undertaking health services research or clinical research with children and families would be an advantage.


This is a part-time (0.6fte) post and will be offered on a fixed term contract until the 30th April 2022.
