The Digital Mental Health Group at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit is an innovative, collaborative, and growing research group studying the intersection between adolescent mental health, cognitive neuroscience, and digital technologies with the aim of improving mental health outcomes in both non-clinical and clinical populations. We are based at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, University of Cambridge, a world-leading research centre well-known for its close-knit community, collaborative atmosphere, and outstanding research support. Our group currently includes our PI, Dr Amy Orben, two PhD students, two incoming postdocs joining us in the autumn, as well as research visitors and interns.
We are seeking a research assistant to join our dynamic team part-time for three days per week to help us produce world-leading research. Pending a grant approval, it might be that we can extend the position to full time (five days per week) by the end of the summer.
In this job, you will have three principal responsibilities. First, you will be given a select smaller research project that you can oversee from start to finish, giving you a broad exposure to different research stages, approaches, and tasks. Second, you will help other group members when they need assistance on diverse research tasks. Third, you will take responsibility for group administrative tasks such as planning group meetings.
You will be supported in complementing these core activities in ways that interest you and benefit the group, as well as the wider department and academic community: for example, by helping us when we collaborate with policymakers; by helping the group work with lived experience populations; or by playing a role when the group does outreach and media engagement.
If you could start working with us this summer that would be ideal, but there is substantial flexibility (e.g., if you want to start in the autumn).
The ideal candidate will know a variety of statistical techniques to analyse participant data and be familiar with programming languages such as R. We would like you to have some scientific research experience, either as part of your university degree or through other programmes. As part of this experience, we would also like to see examples of you problem-solving and showing independent initiative.
Applying for this role, you should be able to demonstrate a strong track record of being able to work well in a team, but how you do so is not important. It can be from your work in a research institution or through engagement in student-run organisations, your community, or other initiatives.
We encourage applicants from backgrounds traditionally marginalised and/or under-represented in the field. Further, please do not be discouraged from applying if your current CV is not a ‘perfect fit’. This job could suit someone from a range of different backgrounds, and there is great scope for the right applicant to develop the role and make it their own. If you think that this might be the role for you, please write and tell us why.
If you have any informal enquiries please feel free to contact Dr Amy Orben: [email protected]
