Clinical Trials Monitor 
£34,220 - £40,194 per annum
Ref : QMUL21631

Applications are invited for the role of Clinical Trials Monitor 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 in the Centre for Clinical Trials and Methodology (CCTM).

We are looking for a Clinical Trials Monitor to join our thriving and dynamic clinical trials unit. The PCTU has particular expertise in pragmatic trials: trials of interventions as they would be delivered in practice. You will be joining a team of Quality Assurance Specialists and a Clinical Trials Monitor currently working within the unit on a wide variety of trials and observational studies.

The post holder’s primary role will be to conduct on-site Monitoring visits for the #ChariotMS Trial.

#ChariotMS is a multi-centre, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase IIb trial. The aim of the trial is to test oral cladribine (Mavenclad®) compared to a placebo for safety, efficacy, and cost-effectiveness, and to advance mechanistic understanding in people with advanced Multiple Sclerosis (MS), i.e. disability severe enough to limit their ability to walk beyond a short distance with support, or not being able to walk at all, but with some retained upper limb function. #ChariotMS is the first ever disease modifying treatment (DMT) trial focussing on people with MS at this stage of disability.

Approximately 20 Investigator sites in the UK will be selected to participate in the trial. The post-holder’s main responsibility will be to monitor the conduct of the trial at participating sites to ensure compliance with Regulatory requirements, GCP guidelines and Sponsor and PCTU Procedures.

The post is a full time, fixed term appointment for 4 years starting in September 2020. Starting salary will be in the range of £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.
