Are you interested in evaluations of complex interventions?
Do you have experience of study coordination or trial management?
Do you want to be part of a leading team that has a national and international reputation for excellence in conducting complex, multi-centre clinical trials of complex interventions?
This is an exciting opportunity for enthusiastic and motivated individuals to join the Complex Intervention Division to lead on the implementation, delivery and monitoring of newly funded projects in Mental Health (1 post) and in Cancer (1 post). You will be based at the Clinical Trials Research Unit (CTRU) within the Leeds Institute of Clinical Trials Research (LICTR). The CTRU is an international leader in the field of clinical trials. The Unit is one of the largest in the UK and conducts national and international randomised and early phase clinical trials in a variety of clinical fields. Our main aim is to support the challenge of changing clinical practice for the better and our past results and current work have already helped to do this. Our results inform the academic development of this specialised field of clinical research on a national and international level. Particularly, we specialise in complex phase III trials, efficient phase I/II trials, biomarker driven designs, seamless phase II/III designs, adaptive designs and the development and evaluation of complex interventions.
You will join our Complex Intervention Division and take responsibility for coordinating a large complex intervention trial from set-up and recruitment, intervention delivery, follow-up, through to trial closure and analysis. You will use your problem solving skills to identify and resolve issues affecting the successful delivery of your trials. You will directly co-ordinate large multi-centre trials in either the Mental Health or the Cancer portfolios. You will lead a CTRU portfolio trial management team, ensuring international quality standards in trial management for the portfolio projects by supervising complex trials and associated trial co-ordination staff across the portfolio. You will contribute to research portfolio development through grant applications and training and developing trials staff.
You will also support the dissemination of research results by contributing to high quality publications and presenting at meetings and conferences. You will have experience of trial coordination and/or trial management gained working on clinical trials, preferably evaluating complex interventions. You will also have up-to-date knowledge of legislation, regulatory and governance environment relating to clinical trials. As you will work closely, interactively and collaboratively with multiple stakeholders you will need excellent communication and interpersonal skills, along with the ability to manage and meet deadlines.
