Fixed Term: This post is funded for one year in the first instance.

We are looking to appoint a Senior Trials Manager (STM) to manage the adoption and set up of new trials. The STM will be responsible for portfolio of trials in early development and set-up. This will involve ensuring that they are framed in the right regulatory structures, according to GCP and relevant regulations, and delivered to planned timelines. The STM will assist with the drafting of study documents, set up of databases and quality assurance documents, once the studies are set up, these will be passed on to other study teams to run the trials. The role will also involve training staff to take on these studies.  The STM will work closely with the NCITA programme Manager to ensure new studies achieve the early targets.  This is a high-level post, and candidates should have considerable experience in conducting and managing clinical interventional trials. The CTU has adopted trials evaluating investigational medicinal products, therefore the post holder will need to have sufficient knowledge and experience in these particular studies.

The CTU is responsible for the development, design and conduct of imaging led clinical trials to evaluate new approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. It is unique in its imaging focus, only running trials that either use imaging to determine their primary outcome or involved imaging biomarkers or novel imaging modalities. As part of NCITA’s sustainability the trial portfolio has grown. NCITA is responsible for over thirty imaging studies, holds a large and growing library of quality assurance documents within Q-PULSE and a growing range of trial databases. The clinical trials unit lead is Professor Mu Koh, based at ICR and the NCITA UCL principal investigator and governance chair is Professor Shonit Punwani.  The CTU works closely with the NCITA QAQC Unit and the NCITA Repository Units.  Adopted trials may involve one or more of the NCITA Units.
