Norwich CTU is a UKCRC Registered Clinical Trials Unit, based at the University of East Anglia in the East of England. We support a large number of Clinical Research Projects across a broad range of clinical disciplines and interventions including multicentre randomised drug, device and complex intervention trials. To support this work, we employ a large number of clinical trial managers, data programmers, statisticians, health economists, epidemiologists and research methodologists.
As a Unit, we have a very diverse and expanding research portfolio. We currently undertake research in the fields of cardiovascular and respiratory medicine, diabetes, neurology, oncology, smoking cessation, CFS, dementia, musculoskeletal, mental health and care and health service improvement.
We have a vacancy for a Junior Trial Manager/Research Associate to join our team and support the set up and delivery of the WRAPS trial. WRAPS is an NIHR funded multicentre Clinical Trial of an Investigational Medicinal Product (CTIMP) exploring the clinical efficacy and mechanisms of action of a weight reduction drug (Semaglutide) in the management of asthma. The grant is due to start in June 2023 and is expected to run for 36 months.
This is an exciting opportunity for someone with experience of conducting clinical research, experience of clinical trial administration/management, excellent communication and team working and a keen eye for details, to join an established CTU. You will have a degree and/or equivalent experience in Clinical Trials and evidence of ability to set up and maintain effective administrative systems in trials. A degree of remote and flexible working is possible.
