Are you passionate about research that will benefit the lives of young people living with or after cancer? Have you got experience in data management and governance of research studies in a healthcare setting? Would you like to support the delivery of projects that put patient-reported outcomes at the heart of clinical practice in our NHS? 

We are looking for an enthusiastic and experienced data manager to assist us in delivering a 3-year project funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). The aim of our research is to enhance the care for people aged 16-39 who have had cancer, by understanding what leads to a successful or unsuccessful return to the social elements of life after cancer treatment. We will build an overall picture of the range of employment, education, social development and wellbeing outcomes seen after young people develop cancer. We will work together to analyse existing general population and cancer population data and deliver a new prospective cohort study as well as patient and public engagement.

Main duties will include working with others to devise and implement data management policies and procedures into a plan, ensuring and reporting ongoing data completeness for analysis, managing study data flows between clinical services and the research team, entering data, curating the quality of study data, monitoring study progress quality and adherence to the project protocols, and feeding back data summaries and updates to the local and wider team in Leeds and London.

The appointed data manager will work closely with the project Research Fellows and under the guidance of the principal investigator (Dr Dan Stark). They will have the support of medical and nursing colleagues in Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.

Effective organisational, interpersonal and communication skills are essential.
