The Research Fellow will support the general management and operations of the MHIN project, with primary responsibilities including:
- Managing knowledge exchange strategy deliverables, including development and commissioning of web content and knowledge exchange products, and managing the MHIN website and its functions;
- Contributing to the strategic direction, visibility, and sustainability of MHIN, including team and project management, relationship management with key stakeholders, actively seeking out funding opportunities and developing bids, and promoting MHIN externally;
- Providing ongoing support to MHIN’s first regional network (MHIN Africa) and proactively exploring opportunities for additional hubs (eg. Latin America); and
- Providing teaching and student support and internal citizenship as per LSHTM academic expectations.
This is an excellent opportunity for a talented researcher to accelerate her or his career in global mental health by gaining the contacts and experience in knowledge exchange, relationship management, and grants management necessary to lead large-scale research projects.
