Salary Range:

The soon to be renamed School of Health Sciences, located on our Avery Hill Campus, is a dynamic multi-professional School within the Faculty of Education, Health and Human Sciences. Frequently commended for its partnership working, the School delivers a range of undergraduate and post graduate programmes including the MSc in Advanced Clinical Practice and the Faculty’s PhD in Health & Social Care.

The School has a vibrant research culture with a strong research and enterprise track record and plays a key role in the Faculty’s ambitious long-term plan, to build internationally leading research, this ambition realised through the soon to be established Institute for Lifecourse Development. The Institute will work with our extensive network of external partners to focus our interdisciplinary expertise around the health, education and wellbeing of vulnerable and marginalised people in the community, be they children at risk, people with chronic illness, the aged, or people who are victimised or stigmatised. The Institute will be a key anchor resource where professionals, researchers and stakeholders from public, charitable and voluntary organisations can work together to develop effective and lifecourse solutions and tackle the grand challenges society faces though effective research, training and practice.

We are making a number of strategic appointments to support the development of the Institute, including an Associate Professor in Mental Health. We are therefore seeking an experienced mental health academic who will lead the Institute’s Centre for Mental Health, Risks and Solutions, and provide research leadership within the School of Health Sciences. You will have an established track record of winning external funding bids and publishing a sustained body of outputs with national and some international impact. You will also have a proven, sustained track record of successful supervision of research activities of students at various levels and of leading research teams and successful supervision of PhD students

  • Professor Karen Cleaver (Head of School),,020 8331 9231.

We are looking for people who can help us deliver our mission of transforming lives through inspired teaching and research, through our values.
