Applications are invited for the role of Clinical Trials eCRF Database Developer 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 Pragmatic Clinical Trials Unit (PCTU) is a fully registered UKCRC trials unit based within a large and vibrant Centre for Primary Care and Public Health, where staff engage in a wide range of applied health research, providing a stimulating work environment. The PCTU leads and supports clinical trials in which the primary question of interest relates to intervention effectiveness: whether an intervention works under real-life conditions. It also carries out and supports pilot studies for these trials. The unit focuses particularly on trials of complex interventions.

We are looking for a Clinical Trials eCRF Database Developer to join our expanding team of highly motivated data management and IT staff in supporting a growing portfolio of clinical trials. This is an exciting opportunity to engage with a number of trial teams working on a variety of clinical trials in important priority areas for the NHS. These include trials exploring ways of delivering primary care, trials focusing on women's health and mental health, and trials related to bowel conditions and surgery.

The post-holder will have a key role in the design, development, validation and support of trial database applications using electronic data capture (EDC) systems, as well as the development of relevant documentation, and training of end-users. He/she will also advise on the current regulatory framework regarding data protection and clinical data management procedures.

A degree level qualification is essential, as is significant experience of data management and database development, especially on the use of EDC systems. Knowledge and understanding of data protection and information security (e.g. Data Protection Act 2018 and GDPR) are also required.

The post is a full time (35 hours per week), fixed term appointment for 24 months, starting as soon as possible. Starting salary will be in the range £33,615-£39,483 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.  Benefits include 30 days’ annual leave, pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate their eligibility to work in the UK in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006. Where required this may include entry clearance or continued leave to remain under the Points Based Immigration Scheme.
