ECR Pilot Project Funding

We would like to extend an open invitation to Early Career Researchers (ECRs) to apply for pilot project funding from the Circadian Mental Health Network (up to £20,000).

This funding call will focus on pilot projects. Your project must have a clear rationale, along with a clear, and viable, pathway to future funding. Your application should include clear detail on how this pilot project funding will benefit the progression of your project, and how you will obtain future funding to continue this project.

Your proposed project must fall within the area of mental health, sleep and circadian rhythms.

Job posts

Clinical Research Fellow
University of Edinburgh

This 3.5 year post is part of the Wellcome-funded project: AMBIENT-BD. This would be an exciting opportunity for a trainee psychiatrist.
The postholder will play a key role in the recruitment and clinical assessment of participants in the AMBIENT-BD study, including individuals with bipolar disorder. They will support the collection of data on past psychiatric history, medication status, family history, current mood and radar-data on sleep and rest/activity rhythms. They will also analyse data, draft publications and take part in the knowledge exchange and dissemination activities associated with this project.

The candidate will be expected to spend about equal time at each institution and, upon successful completion of their studies, they will receive a dual award issued by University of Bristol and University of Kent. This project utilises both fly and mouse models mutant to investigate genes associated with bipolar disorder and to characterise circadian rhythms under different light conditions. In parallel the role will involve measuring the effect on sleep, including measuring sleep stages and sleep deprivation, using standard biochemical and behavioural assays.
