Job Details

Applications are invited for a temporary post of a Research Sponsorship Officer within UCD School of Medicine.

Ref no. 017327

The UCD CRC was established in 2006 to deliver high quality, world class, patient-centred research. Together with our hospital partners and the UCD School of Medicine, we have built a skilled and committed research team who help investigators to design and conduct clinical trials to the highest standards. To date, we have secured funding, published widely and joined prestigious research networks. Our research has been incorporated into national and international clinical guidelines and has been translated into clinical practice to improve outcomes.

As part of our continued growth plans we are expanding our programme so that more patients have the opportunity to take part in high quality clinical trials. Our objectives are:

  1. Increase access for patients and clinicians to trials by doubling the number of trials by 2025.
  2. Grow the UCD research network by including new hospitals and general practice sites.
  3. Set-up early phase clinical trials
  4. Improve how clinical trials are designed and run.
  5. Integrate clinical trials further into our hospitals.
  6. Continue to build our education programmes to train future researchers and clinicians.
  7. Share knowledge so that healthcare professionals can use research results in their clinical practice.
  8. Make sure that patients' voices are at the centre of how we design and carry out clinical trials.

These objectives will be delivered through a significant expansion of our activity and team. To enable this growth, we now seek a Research Sponsorship Officer to join the CRC Team.

Fixed Salary: €51,500 per annum.
