Ref: QMUL21354

Applications are invited for the role of Clinical Trials Data Manager in the Pragmatic Clinical Trials Unit (PCTU) in the newly established Institute of Population Health Science. IPHS is a world class, multidisciplinary grouping of academics.  Its focus is on population health sciences, spanning public and global health, health services research, health policy, genomics and data science, behavioral and social sciences.  IPHS delivers evidence to implement health system change for population benefit.

The Institute comprises four centres: Centre for Primary Care and Mental Health, Centre for Clinical Trials and Methodology, Centre for Global Public Health and Centre for Women’s Health.

The post will be based within the Pragmatic Clinical Trials Unit (PCTU), a fully registered UKCRC trials unit based within the Centre for Clinical Trials and Methodology. 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.

We are looking for an enthusiastic Clinical Trials Data Manager to join our expanding team of highly motivated data management and IT staff in supporting a growing portfolio of clinical trials. This is an exciting opportunity to engage with a number of trial teams working on a variety of clinical trials in important priority areas for the NHS. These include trials exploring ways of delivering primary care, trials focusing on women's health and mental health, and trials related to bowel conditions and surgery.

This post will have a focus on liaison with external stakeholders and other researchers, as well as support and advice on data management and eCRF related issues, requirements gathering and validation for trial databases, and study documentation including Data Management Plans and SOPs.

Experience of data management is essential especially on the use of electronic data capture (EDC) systems such as OpenClinica and RedCap. Also required are the experience of writing documentation, training end users, conducting user testing, as well as the knowledge and understanding of data protection and information governance (e.g. Data Protection Act 2018 and GDPR).

The post is a full time (35 hours per week), fixed term appointment for 24 months, starting as soon as possible. Starting salary will be in the range £34,220 - £40,194 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.  Benefits include 30 days’ annual leave, pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate their eligibility to work in the UK in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006. Where required this may include entry clearance or continued leave to remain under the Points Based Immigration Scheme.

Informal enquiries should be addressed to or on +44 (0)20 7882 6134
