Senior Clinical Psychologist - Oxford Cognitive Approaches to Psychosis (O-CAP)

Department of Psychiatry, Warneford Hospital, Oxford

Grade 9: £46,336 - £53,691 with a discretionary range to £58,665 p.a.

We are seeking a clinical psychologist for a key position in a major new project to bring state-of-the-art virtual reality treatment to NHS services for patients with psychosis. This substantial clinical and research endeavour comprises many elements, including a socially-inclusive design process for the virtual reality treatment, a multi-centre clinical trial, and development of an implementation package. You will join the Oxford Cognitive Approaches to Psychosis team in the Department of Psychiatry at the Warneford Hospital and will work clinically in Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust and neighbouring trusts.

The project is due to start on 1 June 2018. The post is for a fixed-term (funded for 3 years)

The post is an opportunity to be at the heart of a major initiative to develop NHS mental health services, enabling substantially greater provision of psychological intervention via engaging and effective technological innovation. Working closely with Professor Daniel Freeman and the project team, you will help provide day-to-day management and leadership, whilst contributing to the different workstreams. The post would suit a clinical psychologist who is an enthusiastic and creative clinician skilled in cognitive approaches, who has excellent engagement skills, the ability to help build a team across several sites, keenness to put the user experience at the centre of treatment design, and interest in multiple stages of the process of treatment adoption in NHS services.

There are exciting partnerships with numerous organisations, including the Royal College of Art, the McPin Foundation, NIHR Mindtech, and several NHS trusts and universities.

You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement which explains how you meet the selection criteria for the post, and details of two referees.

Potential applicants are encouraged to discuss the position with Professor Daniel Freeman and Dr Felicity Waite.

The closing date for applications is midday 26 February 2018.

Interviews will be held on Friday 9 March 2018.
