Department of Psychiatry, Warneford Hospital, Oxford
The University of Oxford Department of Psychiatry has a proud history over 50 years, making a real difference to the lives of people with mental illness through improved understanding of the causes of illness, the potential for prevention and for developing better treatments. They are now looking to recruit a clinical academic psychiatrist to join the team and develop their career with them. This is a new post that will be part-funded by the NIHR Oxford Health Biomedical Research Centre and is open to clinicians from any psychiatric specialty and undertaking research in any area that further advances knowledge and improves outcomes for those with mental illness. The post is full time and is based in the Department of Psychiatry at the Warneford Hospital.
The candidate will be a recognised international clinical academic who will provide intellectual leadership in psychiatry. The post holder will have established the strategic direction of major research programmes. In addition, the post-holder will contribute more broadly to research both at an international level and across the Medical Sciences Division.
The post holder will have a senior leadership role within the NIHR Oxford Health Biomedical Research Centre. There is an expectation, after a period of time working alongside the current Director Professor John Geddes, that the post holder will take over the Directorship of the BRC. The role will contribute to the Department’s undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes and to postgraduate clinical training and collaborate with other researchers and colleagues in the University.
