Warwick RECOVERS Study is launched

Warwick RECOVERS Study - Responding to COVID by Enhancing Resilience in Students.

Our team is interested in learning how Warwick students have been coping with the pandemic and its impact on their studies and daily lives. We aim to reach out to as many Warwick students as possible, so that the findings will be representative and can be used to inform the support planning as we look to resume some form of 'normality' in the next phase of the pandemic.

Our study is funded by a PVC (Research) COVID research programme award, with support from the Warwick Health Global Research Priority and Centre for Mental Health and Wellbeing Research.

We are hiring a Student Mental Health Project RA!

Fixed term contract for 12 months, 29.2 hours per week.

The University of Warwick is seeking to appoint a 12-month fixed term FTE 0.8 graduate Research Assistant (Project Co-ordinator) role at the Department of Psychology on a project investigating student mental health and resilience during the COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID-19 and associated social distancing measures have presented varying levels of stress and uncertainty to society worldwide. We know that the previous SARS epidemic in China led to significant and long-lasting psychosocial consequences. Within Warwick, discussions with subgroups of students staying on campus amid university closure have revealed a high level of anxiety and unease. It is unclear whether the levels of stress and uncertainty students experience is comparable to those normally associated with trauma, i.e., whether it can negatively affect important pillars of health (e.g., mood, sleep, physical activity), and whether it may aggravate psychiatric symptoms or extreme behaviour that warrant clinical attention. Our project will use survey and digital health technologies to investigate these questions.

The successful applicant will work as a team for the delivery of the project and the dissemination of the findings. This will include setting up, advertising and running the surveys, collecting and analysing data and writing the work up for, pre-registrations, publications and presentations, liaising with other student representatives, stakeholders, and academic, clinical and commercial partners of the project, as well as wider members of the Warwick Sleep and Pain Lab and the Warwick University Mental Health Research Centre.

We are looking for candidates with research experience in health settings, as well as great people, organisational and project management skills.

Please send informal queries to Dr Nicole Tang n.tang@warwick.ac.uk. Closing date: 26th May 2020.
