We wish to recruit a Senior Research Fellow to aid the development of a research portfolio in the field of psychological medicine. The main purpose of the post is to prepare and submit research grant proposals, in collaboration with senior academics in the Leeds Institute of Health Sciences, to attract substantial external research funding from local, regional, national and international sources. The applicant will work closely with Professor Guthrie to expand research in the following potential areas: self-harm, persistent physical symptoms, psychological aspects of physical health/long term conditions, psychological treatments, delirium/dementia and liaison psychiatry.
