The Clinical Trials Research Unit (CTRU) is an international leader in the field of clinical trials. The Unit is one of the largest in the UK and conducts national and international early phase and late phase clinical trials in a variety of clinical fields. Our main aim is to develop and support novel and efficient trials to change clinical practice for the better. Our past results and current research have already helped to do this.

You will have extensive applied experience in clinical trial statistics and/or medical statistics, project and people management, together with a nationally recognised research profile in clinical trials and/or medical statistics.
