We are looking for an enthusiastic and experienced Data Management Lead to join our team of highly motivated Data Management and Database development staff in supporting a growing portfolio of clinical trials in important priority areas for the NHS.

The focus of the role will be to provide leadership on all data management activities across the lifecycle, including liaison with and advice to study teams, as well as gathering information, building and supporting new and existing study databases for clinical research, using EDC systems such as OpenClinica and RedCap. It will also involve developing and documenting data management processes, as well as line management and supervision of junior colleagues in the team. Training will be provided on any technical part of the role as required.

An undergraduate degree or above, with substantial relevant experience in data management or database development is required.  Also among the essential requirements are in-depth experience of building and managing study databases with EDC tools, experience of developing and documenting data management processes and SOPs, line management experience, as well as a good understanding of the regulatory framework around data management and information governance.

The Pragmatic Clinical Trials Unit (PCTU) is a fully registered UKCRC trials unit based within a large and vibrant Centre for Primary Care and Public Health and linked with the Centre for Psychiatry, where staff engage in a wide range of applied health research, providing a stimulating work environment. The PCTU leads and supports clinical trials in which the primary question of interest relates to intervention effectiveness: whether an intervention works under real-life conditions. It also carries out and supports pilot studies for these trials. The unit focuses particularly on trials of complex interventions.

The post is a full time and fixed term appointment for 36 months, starting as soon as possible. Starting salary will be in the range £37,411 to £44,015 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.  Benefits include 30 days’ annual leave, pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.
