You will have a background in a relevant social science or humanities discipline such as medical humanities; sociology; critical, social or health psychology; psychosocial studies; psychoanalytic studies; anthropology; gender and sexuality studies, or disability studies.

An interest in psychotherapy and/or psychoanalysis, mental health and/or childhood and youth studies would be desirable.

PhD (or equivalent) in a relevant subject area, or evidence that the PhD will be completed prior to the start date of the post.
