These postsÂ provide an exciting opportunity to be a Research Assistant on a clinical trial being conducted in the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM) comparing the effectiveness of Lithium and Quetiapine in Depression (the LQD study) funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Health Technology Assessment (HTA). The positions will be within SLaM and the Centre for Affective Disorders in the Department of Psychological Research at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN), Kingâs College London.
LQD is a multisite, randomised controlled trial aiming to determine whether it is more clinically and cost-effective to augment an antidepressant with lithium or quetiapine in patients with treatment resistant depression over 12 months. There is currently clinical equipoise between these two add-on therapies in the treatment of depression and no study has compared the effectiveness of these treatments head to head over the long term.
Under the supervision of Professor Anthony Cleare and Trial Manager, Dr Lindsey Marwood, the post-holder will be responsible for recruiting participants into the study, conducting clinical interviews and administering other psychological measures to participants, as well as completing some data management duties and engaging clinicians in the trial. Relevant training will be provided. This is an ideal opportunity for someone interested in a career in mental health research.
