Job Summary:

The Institute of Cancer Research, London - Clinical Data Manager/Tissue Collector


The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is one of the world’s most influential cancer research organisations, with an outstanding record of achievement dating back more than 100 years.  We provided the first convincing evidence that DNA damage is the basic cause of cancer, and discovered many of the early chemotherapy drugs.  Today, The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) leads the world at isolating cancer-related genes and discovering new targeted drugs for personalised cancer treatment.

The ICR is ranked as the UK’s leading academic research centre.  Our unique partnership with The Royal Marsden and ‘bench-to-bedside’ approach allows us to create and deliver results in a way that other institutions cannot.  Together, we are rated in the top four cancer centres globally.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and committed Clinical Data Manager to work within the Department of Radiotherapy Clinical Trials Unit which undertakes research trials in radiotherapy and urological cancers. 

The successful applicants will provide data management support to the Academic Uro-Oncology Unit, with responsibility for the collection, co-ordination and input of clinical trial data on both trial case report forms and electronic database systems.

In addition to data management support, the post holder will have responsibility for processing clinical samples (usually blood, tumour and ascites) as per the protocol of the particular clinical trials.  This will include the collection of archival samples and the processing of fresh tissue samples; this includes facilitating the collection of samples, and storing these in the appropriate conditions (e.g. in fridges and freezers at -20 and -70°C). The post holder will receive samples from study subjects at the Royal Marsden NHS Trust but may also be involved in obtaining samples from other centres and will be responsible for maintaining accurate records of stored and sent research samples.  They will manage the data associated with the collected samples and other archival materials. 

Applicants will be educated to at least Degree level or equivalent with experience of working in a medical and clinical trials environment with direct patient contact. They must have excellent communication and customer service skills to ensure highly effective and appropriate communication both with patients and with external partners.  A sound working knowledge of the regulatory framework underpinning UK Clinical Trials and the implementation of clinical trial protocols in accordance with ICH GCP within an investigator site is desirable.

This is a demanding role and applicants must be highly organised, self motivated and able to manage complex studies, planning their work and competing priorities around a busy clinical unit.  They should be logical and methodical, possess strong problem solving skills and be fluent in the use of MS Office applications.

The appointment will be on a fixed term contract basis for one year in the first instance.  Salary in the range £21,226 - £31,602 pa (inclusive) based on skills and previous experience. 

Interviews will be held on Tuesday 28th November 2017.
