Do you have experience of trial coordination or trial management? Do you have excellent organisational and communication skills? Do you want to be part of a leading team that has a national and international reputation for excellence in conducting complex, multi-centre clinical trials?
The Clinical Trials Research Unit (CTRU) within the Leeds Institute of Clinical Trials Research (LICTR) is an international leader in the field of clinical trials. The Unit is one of the largest in the UK and conducts national and international randomised and early phase clinical trials in a variety of clinical fields. Our main aim is to support the challenge of changing clinical practice for the better and our past results and current work have already helped to do this. Our results inform the academic development of this specialised field of clinical research on a national and international level. Particularly, we specialise in complex phase III trials, efficient phase I/II trials, biomarker driven designs, seamless phase II/III designs, adaptive designs and the development and evaluation of complex interventions.
You will join our team and take responsibility for coordinating specific clinical trials from set-up and recruitment through to trial closure and analysis. You will directly co-ordinate large multi-centre trials and/or lead a CTRU portfolio trial management team, ensuring international quality standards in trial management for the projects/portfolio by supervising complex trials and associated trial co-ordination staff across the therapeutic area. You will also support the dissemination of research results by contributing to high quality publications and presenting at meetings and conferences.
You will have experience of trial coordination and/or trial management gained working on interventional trials. You will also have up-to-date knowledge of legislation, regulatory and governance environment relating to clinical trials. As you will work closely, interactively and collaboratively with multiple stakeholders you will need excellent communication and interpersonal skills, along with the ability to manage and meet deadlines.
