(Band 7) Clinical Studies Manager

NIHR UCLH Clinical Research Facility

The NIHR UCLH Clinical Research Facility is a well-established Clinical Research Facility (CRF) covering two sites. The Leonard Wolfson Experimental Neurology Centre is a dedicated neuroscience experimental medicine facility at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (NHNN) at Queen Square (QS); and the Clinical Research Facility at 170 Tottenham Court Road is a comprehensive Cancer and Medical research facility on the Bloomsbury campus (BC). In 2020 the CRF opened a third site to accelerate large scale Covid-19 vaccine trials, however it is anticipated that this post will focus primarily on our large portfolio of non-Covid trials.

We are looking to recruit an experienced, skilled and enthusiastic Clinical Studies Manager to oversee the management of the CRF study portfolio across CRF sites running first-in-human through to complex and innovative phase 3 trials, and experimental non-IMP studies. The post holder will be expected to line manage the team of CRF Clinical Trial Coordinators, maintain the CRF study database, and assist with key CRF reports related to CRF performance. The post holder will be expected to work independently organising and planning their own work activities with the objective of maintaining and improving efficiency, trial delivery and quality throughout the CRF.

Using effective self-management of workload the post holder will be expected to manage their own portfolio of clinical trials whilst maintaining oversight of studies managed by the Clinical Trial Coordinators. The post holder will also be expected to oversee and manage the process of new trials being adopted to the CRF portfolio, liaising with Principal Investigators, the Joint Research Office, and Industry partners as required.

This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the running of a very active CRF with a high volume of early phase clinical trials.
