This is an exciting opportunity for an outstanding postdoctoral researcher to join the core team of the new Wellcome Trust-funded Investigator Award on ‘Sexual Violence, Medicine, and Psychiatry’. This project, led by Professor Joanna Bourke (Birkbeck), brings together an interdisciplinary team to investigate the medical and psychiatry aspects of sexual violence, including rape and sexual abuse. Working in close collaboration with the team, the postdoctoral researcher will undertake research on an aspect of sexual violence that involves the medical and/or psychiatric professions. The Fellow’s research should be linked to at least one of five research streams: medicine and the law; medical professionals (including police surgeons, FMEs, nurses, physicians, psychiatrists, forensic scientists, and so on); psychiatric classification systems (From ‘Psychopathia Sexualis’ to the DSM/ICD); psychiatric aftermaths; and child sexual abuse.
The closing date is 11 May 2018. Further details are available here.
