Please follow the link in the posted advert to see further particulars and to apply.   As part of your application, you will be required to upload the documents below:

1. A Curriculum Vitae, (for most posts, but not required for posts at grades 1-5 as a fuller on-line application form is completed)

New Academic Clinical Lecturer Post in Old Age Psychiatry

We have been awarded an additional ACL (ST4) post from NIHR, with the recruitment window opening in April 2015.

Old age psychiatry research in Oxford is supported by a world-class imaging infrastructure, providing 1.5, 3 (2x) and 7 Tesla research-dedicated scanners, PET-CT, as well as magneto-encephalography. Linkup to epidemiological data sets (Whitehall II; OPTIMA), to strong psycho- and neurophysiological teams, to the Oxford Clinical Trials Unit for Mental Illness, and to the Clinical Neurosciences Groups of the Oxford BRC, offers opportunities for interdisciplinary initiatives and training. A research programme embedded in the Oxford BRC has recently acknowledged our innovative interdisciplinary approach.
