Research opportunities in Mental Health

There are many opportunities to undertake research in mental health within the section, both at Masters level (MSc and MPhil) and as a doctorate (PhD and MD). We particularly welcome approaches from NHS staff who would like to discuss the chance to become research-active within the NHS. Research can be supported in a number of ways:

  • Self-funded research in student's own time (NB: fee waivers are sometimes available for UK students)
  • Tuition fees and/or research time funded by NHS employer
  • Research funded by award of a personal Fellowship from the NHS Research Capacity Development scheme
  • Research undertaken as part of a funded programme of NHS research

To discuss any of these options more fully, please contact Professor Glenys Parry, the research lead for the section. Alternatively, look at some of the staff pages for the section, and contact the staff member whose research interests most closely match your own.

You should also look at the main pages for ScHARR describing Postgraduate Study Opportunities. There are further pages describing the overall research plan for ScHARR as a whole here. This will show you the research themes relevant to other sections in ScHARR.

Current opportunities

The Mental Health group is seeking full or part-time doctoral students who wish to research any aspect of pro- and/or anti-social interpersonal behaviour. Students will be supervised by experienced researchers from the Mental Health group. ScHARR fee waivers may be available for applicants, and other possible sources of funding can be investigated. For an informal discussion, please contact Abby Constantine for further information.
