About the role
We have an exciting opportunity for a Data Assistant to join Oxford Cancer, a city-wide research initiative and partnership between Oxford University, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust, Thames Valley Cancer Alliance and the Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group, delivering cutting-edge and innovative research that delivers both scientific and clinical impact.
This post is responsible for the collection, input, quality control and reporting of data relating to patients participating in research coordinated by the Oxford Cancer centre whilst undergoing their care in Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. You will be responsible for extracting and interpreting the required information from patient notes and electronic database records, inputting data, and querying missing or inconsistent data. You will interact with basic science teams and clinical trials staff, facilitating data collection in related approved clinical trials and observational studies. The data will be used to evaluate the performance of new cancer diagnosis and treatment initiatives, and contribute towards research carried out by the Trust’s clinical teams and collaborating scientists at the University.
This position will require you to work closely with the Data Manager to develop and grow the team’s data collection activities (assisting with developing database specifications, testing data entry interfaces, and supporting projects related to the collection and storage of images from endoscopy and radiology), helping to shape the future of cancer research in Oxford. You will also participate in audits, both internal and external.
Due to the nature of the work, you will be required to obtain an Honorary NHS Contract to undertake this role (the Department will facilitate this process on your behalf).
The post will be based at Oxford Cancer, New Richards Building, Old Road Campus, Headington, Oxford, OX3 7LA, and is offered on a full-time basis, fixed term for 18 months.
You will be educated to at least A-level (or equivalent qualification) in science and have previous experience of using electronic data capture systems. You will have the ability to identify and seek out information needed to solve problems and make sound decisions, with demonstrable knowledge of principles of working with confidential data. Excellent written and oral communication skills, with very high attention to detail, together with a working knowledge of spreadsheets and word processing software is essential. You will be able to work independently but also as part of a team. Experience of data management in a medical or research setting or familiarity with NHS database systems would be advantageous.
You will be required to upload a supporting statement (setting out how you meet the selection criteria) and the names and contact details of two referees as part of your online application.
Informal enquiries about the role can be directed to email@example.com.
Only applications received by 12pm GMT on Wednesday 04 January 2023 will be considered.
