Applications are invited for the position of Chair in Clinical Trials, working in the North Wales Organisation for Randomised Trials in Health and Social Care (NWORTH). This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the leadership of a nationally-recognised clinical trials unit.

NWORTH is a fully UKCRC registered trials unit with an excellent history and reputation. The unit specialises in large-scale, pragmatic multi-centred trials of complex interventions in health and social care based in challenging and complicated healthcare and community settings. Our work in mental health including dementia research has marked us out as UK-leading. NWORTH also has expertise in conducting studies using alternative designs such as large-scale longitudinal observational cohort studies, mixed methods approaches, multi-arm, multi-stage trials, and evidence synthesis. NWORTH has a current project portfolio of 20 studies with a total grant value of over £32m.

We are looking for an exceptional individual with a strong record of research funding and international quality publications. The post-holder will be responsible for contributing to the strategic running of the CTU, and will secure research funding, both as Chief Investigator and as part of collaborative teams. The successful applicant will be expected to collaborate with scientific and clinical research groups in Wales (for instance within the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board and the new Clinical Research Facility), the UK and internationally to enhance the reputation and portfolio of NWORTH.

The post is full-time and permanent, and the successful candidate will be expected to commence as soon as practical.

This role will be located at our Bangor campus. Through our Dynamic Working framework, there will also be the option to spend some time working remotely (although remaining in the UK) to support work life balance, which will be discussed further with candidates at interview.

Applications will only be accepted via our on-line recruitment website, However, in cases of access issues due to disability, paper application forms are available by telephoning 01248 383865.
