Project Manager

Department of Paediatrics, Specialised Translational Research Oxford Neuromuscular Group (STRONG), John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford

We are looking to appoint a Project Manager to join the Specialised Translational Research Oxford Neuromuscular Group (STRONG), based in the John Radcliffe Hospital.

The successful candidate will be an integral member of STRONG, working closely with the Operations Manager, Laura Chiverton, and the Principal Investigator, Professor Laurent Servais, in the planning, set-up and management of new clinical trials, natural history studies, and projects.

The post holder will report directly to the Operations Manager, but also liaise closely with the Finance team and other relevant divisions in the Department of Paediatrics, to ensure both departmental and institutional processes and procedures are followed.

The role requires someone who can work as a member of a multi-disciplinary team, and independently, using their initiative to seek solutions to problems and provide excellent support. Considerable experience in the management and monitoring of clinical trials and thorough working knowledge of the relevant ethical, legislative and research governance requirements relevant to clinical trials in the UK are essential. Furthermore, the ability to administer, maintain and co-ordinate the logistical and practical aspects needed to establish projects involving complex partnerships within the NHS and University administration are critical.

To be considered for this post you must be educated to degree level, or equivalent experience; have clinical trial management experience; possess current working knowledge of GDPR, GCP, Research Governance, and other key regulatory areas and ethical frameworks presently in place in the UK; possess excellent and demonstrable communication, planning and organisational skills; be capable of managing your time under pressure with a flexible approach to be able to address complex problems; and be computer literate and competent in standard IT applications such as Word and Excel. Experience in liaising with industry partners in public-private collaborations would also be desirable.

This position is offered full-time on a fixed-term contract initially for one year with the possibility to extend provided further external funding is available.

You will be required to upload a CV and Supporting Statement as part of your online application.
