The School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences (BMEIS) is involved in several clinical research projects requiring specialist knowledge to create and maintain medical research databases.
The successful applicant responsibilities will include the development, customisation, testing, maintenance and administration of research databases on exiting platforms (e.g. REDCap, XNAT). They will also ensure that established Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) are being followed. The post holder will implement required changes to database and software systems using best change management practice effectively and efficiently with minimal downtime. Advise both technical and non-technical users of the implications of system changes on data integrity and, if available, explain preferred alternatives.
The post holder will be required to ensure that data are collected, stored and managed in full compliance with all relevant legal and regulatory requirements (including the General Data Protection Regulation, The Human Tissue act, etc.), as well as all local and research Regulations (Ethics Board Approvals, Good Clinical Practice guidelines, etc.).
The post holder will have regular communications with clinicians, senior researchers, clinical trial managers, and statisticians to ensure that the managed database systems provide the data required to support translational research. They will ensure senior research staff are aware of data management issues which may affect their research programmes. The post holder will work closely with the research teams to ensure that provided solutions meets the needs of the teams.
The post holder will be working on several projects at any one time and will be expected to manage expectations from end users and implement creative time management skills.
This job description reflects the core activities of the role and as the College and the post-holder develop there will inevitably be changes in the emphasis of duties. It is expected that the post-holder recognises this and adopt a flexible approach to work and be willing to participate in training and to perform any other duties as may be requested from time to time commensurate with grade.
