Research Fellow position in Conflict and Mental Health at LSHTM (London-based)
We have an opportunity for a full-time Research Fellow in Conflict and Mental Health to work on the five-year Wellcome Trust funded project (CHANGE) which seeks to address alcohol misuse and mental health co-morbidities among conflict-affected populations in Uganda and Ukraine.
The aim of CHANGE is to develop a new psychological intervention to reduce alcohol use disorders (AUDs) and co-occurring psychological problems in conflict-affected populations. The new intervention will build upon the World Health Organization’s (WHO) intervention “Problem Management Plus” (PM+). CHANGE seeks to complement PM+ with evidence-based strategies addressing alcohol misuse. We will test effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of the new intervention (called PM+/AUD) through two randomised controlled trials in Uganda and Ukraine. Project partners include HealthRight International Uganda, the University of Copenhagen, and the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla.
The successful candidate will be based in London at LSHTM. They will work on the formative research process to develop PM+/AUD, assist in the trial design and implementation of the intervention, analyse in-depth qualitative data to investigate implementation processes, and examine the potential for scaling up PM+/AUD.
