Clinical Research Co-ordinator

The University of Edinburgh - Centre for Medical Informatics

Fixed term for 12 months

We are seeking to appoint a Clinical Research Coordinator to contribute to the UK Biobank project. UK Biobank is a very large prospective cohort study of 500,000 UK adults aged 40-69 years at baseline, who were recruited from 2006-2010, have provided detailed baseline information and samples, are participating in additional enhancement projects such as multimodal imaging, and are being followed up for health outcomes over the next few decades.

You will join Professor Cathie Sudlow’s team, based at Edinburgh University’s Usher Institute in the Bioquarter, Little France. This national post will coordinate the UK Biobank’s validation studies to investigate the accuracy of routinely-collected health datasets including hospital admissions, death registrations and primary care data for the identification of health outcomes (including, for example, neurodegenerative, cardiovascular, metabolic, musculoskeletal, respiratory and mental health disorders). The work will enrich and enhance the UK Biobank resource, facilitating research studies into the determinants of a wide range of diseases of major public health importance.

We are looking for someone with:

  • Registered nurse/Allied Health Care Professional with experience in clinical research at a senior level.
  • Extensive clinical, research and management experience demonstrating the appropriate competencies and skills for the research programme and clinical speciality.
  • Extensive research experience including awareness of ICH GCP guidelines, EU Clinical Trials Directive, Medicines for Human Use (2006) and Research Governance Framework (2006).
  • Relevant clinical research and management experience demonstrating the ability to work independently with an in-depth knowledge of the relevant competencies and skills required.
  • The post holder will be required to demonstrate excellent team working skills with ability to work independently.
  • Experience in managing and supervising staff, students, performance management, training and mentorship.
  • Experience in monitoring and analysing complex information to effect improvement to study.
  • Extensive experience of audit and data verification.

This post is full-time, although for the right candidate we would be open to someone part time in post for a minimum of 25 hours per week. The post will start as soon as possible and is available one year in the first instance.
