Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, Woodstock Road, Oxford

Applications are invited for a Trial Manager to work with a team working with Professor Susan Jebb on a research programme on diet and obesity.

The post is embedded in the thriving Health Behaviours team in the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences (NDPCHS). The team work on interventions to prevent or treat ill-health by intervening on diet, obesity, and smoking. We have a strong track record of applied research that can benefit patients and lead to changes in the health system.

NDPCHS research is led by internationally renowned scientists, many of whom are practising GPs and primary care clinicians or public health physicians, together with academics from a range of other disciplines including behavioural and social sciences, and humanities. Our research covers the broad range of issues that you might expect to address in the community, including cardiovascular and metabolic disease, cancer, infectious diseases and childhood illnesses, obesity, poor diet and smoking. We focus on understanding and improving the experiences of patients, rigorously evaluating the effectiveness of treatments and diagnostics, utilising big data, developing digital health interventions and working internationally. We have methodological expertise in clinical trial design and implementation, clinical decision making and diagnostics, epidemiology, medical statistics, behavioural science, modelling, qualitative research and the wider application of social science theory and methods to address practical and theoretical challenges in health and care settings.

The successful applicant will work on one or more of our clinical research studies, developing trial approvals, setting up trials in different areas, conducting study visits and contributing to data analysis and paper preparation. Responsibilities will include taking the lead on day-to-day delivery of a major clinical trial, undertaking all key tasks within the lifecycle of the trial, including developing SOPs and monitoring trial progress. They will also develop and deliver training to staff at research sites and contribute to the development and initiation of new research ideas and grant applications.

You will hold a good first degree, or have equivalent experience in a research environment, and have detailed knowledge of a full life-cycle of study management. You will have strong computer literacy skills, be able to work well in a team, in a busy environment and have the ability to effectively prioritise tasks.

You will be based in the Radcliffe Primary Care Building or Gibson Building of the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, Radcliffe Primary Care Building, Woodstock Road, Oxford, OX2 6GG as your normal place of work but there may be the opportunity for occasional remote working.

The position is funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and the Novo Nordisk Foundation (NNF) until 28th February 2026, with possible extension to 2027.
