DIVISION OF BRAIN SCIENCES
FACULTY OF MEDICINE
Clinical and Non-clinical Academic Appointments in Psychiatry
The Division of Brain Sciences is making a major investment in psychiatric research. We plan to make a number of senior clinical or non-clinical academic appointments to develop strengths in this area.
We are especially interested to hear from academics with a focus on research exploiting healthcare datasets and other large datasets, novel medical technologies or neuroimaging to improve our understanding of psychiatric disorders to improve clinical management. Expertise for developing and exploiting neurotechnology, data science, epigenetic and related ‘omics approaches to gene-environment interactions, and CNS pharmacology would address broader Divisional strategic planning priorities, but are not exclusive fields of interest and we will be pleased to consider those with other interests that impact on psychiatric research.
The strong neuroimaging, epidemiology, computing science, and engineering science base in Imperial College offers special opportunities for programmes exploiting large dataset analyses and other neurotechnologies.
Successful appointees will be expected to enhance the reputation of the Department and College in the field of psychiatric research through the development of research programmes, contributing to effective teaching and training, helping to maintaining financial viability of the Division and supporting its good governance. More generally, the post-holder will be expected to inspire collaboration within the Division and enhance its intellectual community.
Clinical appointees are expected to contribute up to 4 PAs to clinical service at West London Mental Health Trust and these can be negotiated to meet the post holders interests and needs.
Clinical and non-clinical candidates are eligible for appointment. The level of appointment (Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Reader or Professor) and the supporting package will be determined according to experience and research profile using the following broad guidelines:
The appointee will have demonstrated their ability to produce independent research in psychiatry and have developed the skills to take an active role in research supervision.

The appointee will be able to demonstrate a sustained international reputation based on an extensive track record of research with a major influence in the field of psychiatry and a significant impact shown, for example through consistent influence on research income.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an individual with the ability to develop their original ideas, lead a research group and work to be among the best in the field.
