Myeloma UK is the only organisation in the UK dealing exclusively with the blood cancer myeloma and related conditions. We are committed to bringing together the best and brightest people to help us ensure that every patient has an empowered present and a hopeful future.
Our goal is to find a cure. We are dedicated to ensuring that patients get access to the right treatment at the right time, and to improving standards of treatment and care through research, education and awareness raising. We also provide a range of information and support services to patients, family, and friends to help deal with a diagnosis of myeloma.
About the role
Sir Frank Chapman and the George P Livanos Foundation are delighted to be jointly funding the first phase of Myeloma UK’s new research initiative investigating heart and circulatory disease and its links to the rare blood cancer myeloma. The intent is that this prestigious fellowship will bring a new understanding to life-threatening circulatory events experienced by some myeloma patients, and so materially contribute to their survivorship journey.
This is a unique opportunity to work with the Principal Investigator and external agencies/researchers to deliver this flagship research programme. You will be leading on all aspects of the day-to-day management of the programme, including analysis of data, development of surveys, drafting reports and papers, and reporting on progress.
You will work closely with colleagues across Myeloma UK, as well as building and developing relationships with relevant research communities and stakeholders, representing the charity at meetings and conferences, as required.
You will be educated to postgraduate degree level in a relevant field and have a proven track record in Applied Health Research, as well as experience in a healthcare academic environment, including working with cancer patients. You will have knowledge of health research methodologies, managing and analysing big data, and expertise in the delivery of systematic reviews, development of surveys, and management and analysis of large datasets.
You will need excellent communication and relationship building skills, and the ability to work independently and to tight deadlines.
Myeloma UK offers its employees a range of benefits including a pension salary exchange scheme, flexitime, flexible working from home with hub-based office working, health plan and holiday purchase scheme and we are committed to providing learning and development opportunities for all our employees.
