The Birmingham Clinical Trials Unit (BCTU) is a leading national clinical trials unit (CTU) within the College of Medical & Dental Sciences at the University of Birmingham specialising in the design, conduct and analysis of definitive clinical trials and test evaluation studies.

In early 2016, the existing BCTU and the Primary Care Clinical Research and Trials Unit (PC-CRTU) combined to form a new, enlarged BCTU, under the Directorship of Prof Peter Brocklehurst.

BCTU was established in 1997, and has evolved into one of the largest and most effective CTUs in the UK, undertaking high quality late phase clinical trials, diagnostic and test evaluation studies, systematic reviews and methodological research across a wide range of disease areas in both the primary and secondary care settings.  BCTU has a strong human resource base of over 100 people, with specialist statistical, methodological, trial management, quality assurance and database development expertise, who currently oversee the design, setup, coordination, analysis and reporting of the Unit’s clinical trial research.

Full time starting salary is normally in the range £19,156 to £20,514. With potential progression once in post to £25,009 a year.
