Text: Senior Trial Coordinator, - Ref:1779567 Click here to go back to search results Apply Now UCL Department / Division Cancer Institute Specific unit / Sub department CR UK & UCL Cancer Trials Centre Location of position London Grade 8 Hours Full Time Salary (inclusive of London allowance) ?43,884 - ?51,769 per annum Duties and Responsibilities The Cancer Research UK and UCL Cancer Trials Centre (CTC) is a Research Department in the UCL Cancer Institute at University College London. The majority of staff are funded on Cancer Research UK programme or project grants. There is additional funding from other charities, educational grants and collaborative grants from industry. The CTC is responsible for the development, design and conduct of clinical trials to evaluate new approaches to the treatment or early detection of cancer. It is one of the largest cancer trials centres in the UK, conducting predominantly multicentre phase II and III trials using survival, tumour response or quality of life as endpoints; as well as large-scale cancer screening studies, and observational studies. There is an expanding portfolio of phase I, II and feasibility studies, some with biological endpoints, and most trials now include a translational research component. The CTC is conducting more than 110 national and international trials (ongoing or in set-up) with at least 100 staff, involving the recruitment of several thousand patients. Most trials are sponsored by UCL; a few are sponsored by other international academic organisations. Several CTC trials have made practice-changing contributions to a wide range of tumours, for example, studies in the area of lung cancer genomics have significantly advanced our understanding in the area. CTC staff collaborate with clinicians and research staff within the ?UCL Partners? and other institutions in the UK, for example through the National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) Clinical Studies Groups, and abroad. The CTC works with potential Chief Investigators to develop trials and manages funded trials with them and the Trial Management Groups. The CTC has a wider role as a UKCRC Registered Clinical Trials Unit. It collaborates with other national and international groups to conduct cancer trials. The CTC Director is Jonathan Ledermann, Professor of Medical Oncology at UCL. Currently the CTC portfolio is divided into 4 trial groups: (i) Haematological and Brain cancers; (ii) Upper and Lower Gastrointestinal tract, Head & Neck, Prostate cancers and Sarcoma, (iii) Gynaecological and Lung cancers; and (iv) Advanced Therapies. These groups reflect the type of work currently undertaken within the CTC. Each of these groups is led by a Clinical Trials Manager. However, the CTC works flexibly and adapts to changing needs of the local and national research environment, and so these groups and divisions may evolve over time. We are looking to appoint a Senior Trial Coordinator to manage our increasing number of trials. The Senior Trial Coordinator (STC) is responsible for managing a portfolio of trials; ensuring that they are conducted according to the protocol, GCP and relevant regulations, and according to planned timelines.

The STC must also ensure systems are in place to monitor the work of the team and the conduct of the trial so that problems are identified and can be dealt with at the earliest opportunity. The STC works closely with the Trials Group Lead to develop new trials, deal with issues in ongoing trials, prioritise and manage the workload of the team, and to continuously assess the working practices of the team to inform changes to improve communication, efficiency and quality. This is a high-level post, and candidates must already have acquired considerable experience in conducting and managing several clinical interventional trials. The majority of studies at the CTC involve evaluating investigational medicinal products, therefore the postholder would need to have had sufficient knowledge and experience in these particular studies. The post is funded for 1 year in the first instance. Key Requirements The postholder will have a Medical, nursing or life sciences degree, and preferably a relevant post-graduate degree. They should also have considerable experience of conducting clinical trials, including developing a project plan, developing protocols, case report forms and other trial-related documents, site set-up, monitoring trial progress, and how databases are prepared for analysis, and trial close down.
