Do you have considerable experience of clinical trial data management and pharmacovigilance? Do you have excellent organisational and communication skills? 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? 

The Clinical Trials Research Unit (CTRU) within the Leeds Institute of Clinical Trials Research (LICTR) 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 team and take responsibility for the management of safety data for a portfolio of specific clinical trials from set-up and recruitment through to trial closure and analysis. You will lead on the management of safety data directly on large multi-centre trials and lead a centralised pharmacovigilance team,  ensuring international quality, patient safety and regulatory standards across the studies. You will contribute to the development of new research projects and may be involved in dissemination of research results by contributing to high quality publications and presenting at meetings and conferences.

You will have experience of data management and pharmacovigilance gained working on interventional clinical trials. You will also have up-to-date knowledge of legislation, regulatory and governance environment relating to data management, pharmacovigilance and clinical trials. You will also act as a contact point for advice and support on pharmacovigilance issues and provide training in pharmacovigilance and related matters across the wider Institute.
