Another day, another exciting opportunity, as the Wellcome Trust Mental Health and Justice project cranks up speed. This time, the position on offer is a two-year post-doc Senior Research Officer position with the Essex Autonomy Project, to provide support for two ongoing projects under the MHJ umbrella. The first, which will be the primary focus in 2017, concerns standards of objectivity and evidence in proceedings at the interface between mental health care and justice. The second concerns reliance on the clinical concept of “insight” (roughly: awareness of pathology) in legal and administrative proceedings in which patient rights are adjudicated.
The deadline for applications is 2 May, and more details (including how to apply) can be found here.
