Applications are invited for the role of Clinical Trials Research Nurse in the Blizard Institute, Queen Mary University of London. The Blizard Institute is the largest institute of Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry and aims to deliver excellence in all aspects of research, teaching and clinical service. The Neurogastroenterology Group is a collaboration of both scientists and clinicians, from several disciplines (principally Gastroenterology and Colorectal Surgery), who are working together to advance basic scientific study, and translate this knowledge to enhance care for patients with disorders of gastrointestinal function.

The postholder will be responsible for the day-to-day management and delivery of two trials, including a prestigious MRC-funded clinical research study. The postholder will be based at Queen Mary (Whitechapel), but for the first year will also be expected to perform 50% of study sessions at University College Hospital. The post holder will have responsibility for coordinating all aspects of research trials, including identification, enrolment, randomisation, screening, collection and preparation of biological samples, collection and input of trial data and follow up of patients. The post-holder will liaise with the Principal Investigators and their study teams, and also be expected to provide Senior Nursing input and support within the wider multi-disciplinary research teams.

Applicants will have up-to-date registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council, and will ideally have clinical trials experience within the fields of gastroenterology or colorectal surgery. The postholder will be familiar with issues surrounding collection of clinical trials data, and have knowledge of GCP and EU directives. Experience managing databases is desirable but training will be provided if necessary.

The post is full time, fixed term appointment for 2 years, available to start as soon as possible. Starting salary will be in the range of £37,411 - £44,015 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance. Benefits include 30 days annual leave, pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.
