This full time, permanent role is available February 2023.

This role offers the opportunity for hybrid working – some time on campus and some from home.

We welcome applications from candidates interested in working part-time hours or job-sharing arrangements.

Exeter Clinical Trials Unit (ExeCTU) is a UKCRC registered University of Exeter supported facility and works in collaboration with researchers and clinicians in the design and delivery of high quality and efficient controlled trials and other well-designed studies addressing important health questions. We work closely with NIHR Exeter Clinical Research Facility (CRF) and have an established Exeter Clinical Trials Support Network (ECTSN).

The role

A new role has been created to support Exeter Clinical Trials Unit's (ExeCTU) varied research projects through the creation and on-going support of highly scalable data centric applications.

You will join the Core IT and Programming team to develop, maintain, support and validate effective data entry and administrative systems in Microsoft SQL Server, .NET and REDCap. Applications may be Windows programs, server-side, linux, with software written mainly in .NET, PHP and SQL. You will have a high degree of autonomy and you will be expected to think proactively and exercise initiative.

The Clinical Trials Programmer post will support the delivery, development and maintain systems and procedures to support data management activities including data collection, validation, cleaning, presentation and storage for clinical trials/studies.
