The Medical Research Council’s Clinical Trials Unit (CTU) at UCL is one of the UK’s leading centres for clinical research. It conducts national and international clinical trials, meta-analyses and epidemiological studies in cancer and infectious diseases (particularly HIV and TB) and other health care areas. It is part of the national network of eight regional Hubs for Trials Methodology Research, established by the MRC, to develop new and improved methods for the design, conduct and analysis of clinical trials.
The Trial and Study management group within the Unit manages the coordination of the clinical trials in collaboration with scientists from the disease themes and the Data System Management group. The Clinical Project Managers at the Unit interact closely with the Statisticians, Trial Managers, Project Leads, Data Managers, Data Scientist, Programmers and Trials Assistants as part of the Trial team.
We are working flexibly in a hybrid pattern with a minimum of 40% in the office.
These posts are open ended with funding for 12 months in the first instance. The posts also include a 12 month position covering maternity leave.
About the role
We currently have vacancies to work within the Unit. The Clinical Project Manager post works closely with disease-specific group staff to identify the management needs of new studies within the assigned portfolio and arrange for deployment of staff to meet those needs.
The main trial related duties of the post will include but are not limited to early and continued involvement in trial planning and budgeting, site level budgeting, site selection and evaluation, trial drug forecasting and negotiation with external providers, trial operational risk assessment and mitigation, development of the trial procedures, quality management, monitoring plan and trial team training. At the Unit level the post holder will work with the senior team of the Trial and Study Management group to develop, implement and monitor unit wide processes across our research.
If you have excellent knowledge of clinical research, and different methodologies then this role could be for you. You will have recent experience in the coordination of clinical trials involving Investigational Medicinal Products, and an excellent knowledge of current regulatory requirements governing clinical trials including a practical understanding of GCP. You will also have monitoring experience, good communication skills, an ability to work within a multi-disciplinary team, and proven people management skills. Willingness to travel within the UK and/or internationally are essential. Knowledge of cancer/HIV or Tuberculosis trials, and experience of supervising/mentoring staff would be advantageous.
