We have an exciting opportunity for a Senior Trials Manager to contribute at a senior level to an internationally renowned group, conducting cutting edge studies into genetic and other disease modifying therapies in those with or at risk of neurodegenerative disease. The Neurogenetic Therapies Programme (NgTP), generously funded by the Sigrid Rausing Trust, aims to build on recent advances in the understanding of the genetic basis of neurodegenerative diseases, and significantly speed up their translation into effective treatments.
You will work closely with the NgTP Programme Manager, Clinical Lead and team of Trial Coordinators/Practitioners to deliver a portfolio of genetic and other disease modifying therapy clinical trials across a number of neurodegenerative diseases in the Leonard Wolfson Experimental Neurology Centre (LWENC), Dementia Research Centre (DRC) and other University College London Hospital (UCLH) sites as required.
You will have oversight of a clinical trial portfolio and will be responsible for overseeing the planning and delivery of the trials from trial set up (costings, contracts, research governance) to implementation (recruitment, screening, oversight of trial coordination and cost recovery).
The post is available immediately and is funded by the Sigrid Rausing Trust grant for one year in the first instance. The Neurogenetic Therapies Programme currently has funding in place until July 2024.
Starting salary on UCL Grade 8, which ranges from £45,610 to £53,757 per annum including London Allowance. The Institute also offers 41 days of annual leave (inclusive of bank holidays and college closure dates), a generous pension scheme, access to UCL’s community benefits including lunch-hour lectures, exhibitions, and museums, as well as an extensive range of staff benefits.
You’ll have an Honours degree (minimum 2:1) in science/healthcare related discipline, or significant comparable experience. Comprehensive knowledge of UK Clinical Trials Regulations, ICH Good Clinical Practice, the European Directives on Clinical Trials and Good Clinical Practice and the Department of Health’s Research Governance Framework is essential, as is an understanding of clinical trial methodology and regulatory processes in the UK required for authorising, conducting and terminating clinical research.
Experience of regulatory trials in a university hospital setting, maintaining, collating and manipulating complex data, developing systems for monitoring performance relating to research studies or programmes, and managing budgets is also required for this role.
