Location: St Mary’s Campus (hybrid working)
The Research Governance and Integrity Team (RGIT) is responsible for the processing and management of a large portfolio of clinical and non-clinical research and supports the College and its researchers to meet the requirements of research regulatory governance and integrity, to ensure that Imperial fulfils the legal, ethical and scientific obligations of the healthcare research process.
RGIT supports both NHS and non-NHS Healthcare research and human impact non-healthcare research across the College and also provides a service to Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.
As RGIT Ethics and Research Governance Coordinator you will work within a research compliance team dedicated to ensuring that all healthcare and non-healthcare research is initiated and managed in line with legal and organisational requirements.
Duties and responsibilities
A core part of this role is assuring that appropriate operational systems are developed and established into working practice to facilitate the effective management and conduct of clinical research at the College, in compliance with prevailing regulations (e.g. Good Clinical Practice, UK Policy Framework for Health and Social Care Research and study specific protocols).
You will coordinate and be primary contact for both the Imperial College Research Ethics Committee (ICREC) and the Science, Engineering and Technology Research Ethics Committee (SETREC) and oversee its functions as part of College Research Integrity systems.
The role will involve review of non-NHS applications for sponsorship, and you will be responsible for providing advice and guidance on preparing non-NHS studies for review by the College’s ethics committees and will also have a role in oversight of studies following approval.
You will be involved in delivering and shaping training programmes and collating data on research activity.
Ideally, you will have an awareness of research governance and ethics within a university setting. Experience of research governance and management would be advantageous, but you should have proven experience of working independently, using your initiative. The role also involves ordering of office supplies and requires management of databases and good IT skills.
Candidates must have excellent interpersonal skills, attention to detail and be highly organised. As the role will require you to manage several projects at once, you should also have good time management skills.
The post is primarily based at St Mary’s Hospital Campus (hybrid working) with travel to other sites as required.
