Job Description

Are you an enthusiastic and driven individual with a good working knowledge of Clinical Trials (or similar large studies) and Data Management? Do you want to ensure quality standards in data collection to provide reliable answers to key research questions for patient benefit? Do you want to join a successful, highly talented and multi-disciplinary team in a large, well-established clinical trials unit?

The Clinical Trials Research Unit 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 the data management of specific clinical trials from set-up and recruitment through to trial closure and analysis. This will involve the collection, computerisation and validation of data, creating trial specific database specifications and supervising data management staff.

You will have experience of data management, ideally gained working on interventional trials along with an up-to-date knowledge of legislation, regulatory and governance environment relating to clinical trials. As you will work closely, interactively and collaboratively with numerous stakeholders you will need excellent communication, interpersonal and team working skills, along with the ability to manage and meet deadlines.
