Administrative Assistant
University College London
United Kingdom

Duties and Responsibilities

Located in central London, the Cancer Research UK and UCL Cancer Trials Centre (CTC) is one of the largest cancer trials centres in the UK, working at the forefront of cancer research.  

Being part of the CTC therefore provides excellent opportunities to collaborate on projects with scientists from the Cancer Institute, and the wider UCL community. 

The CTC Director is Professor Jonathan Ledermann (Professor of Medical Oncology). The CTC has about 110-120 staff working on over 110 clinical studies at various stages. These are predominantly multicentre (UK and international), involving many hospitals, academic and commercial organisations, and often large numbers of patients. As a member of the department you will collaborate with research staff in hospitals and universities in the UK and abroad.

The majority of CTC trials involve investigational medicinal products and therefore fall within the scope of the European Union Clinical Trial Directive (EUCTD) and associated guidelines and the UK Regulations. The CTC also conducts trials of methods of screening for cancers and trials of non-drug therapies, such as radiotherapy. All trials are also governed by other UK regulations, including the UK Policy Framework for Health and Social Care Research, Data Protection Act and Freedom of Information Act. UCL acts as Sponsor for the majority of CTC trials, but delegates many sponsorship duties to the CTC through a Memorandum of Understanding.

The main purpose of the Clinical Trial Monitor post is to conduct on-site monitoring visits at participating trial sites to ensure that: the rights, safety and well-being of human subjects are being protected, reported trial data are accurate and the trial is being conducted in compliance with the protocol and applicable regulatory requirements, including Good Clinical Practice. The postholder will work on specific CTC trials with on-site monitoring requirements and will also support CTC trial teams in the preparation of monitoring documentation and assist with central monitoring of documents submitted by trial sites. 

The post is funded for one year in the first instance.

Key Requirements
The postholder will have significant knowledge of the biomedical or life sciences area, along with significant experience in the conduct of clinical trials involving Investigational Medicinal Products. The postholder will have familiarity with current clinical trial and research regulations and an understanding of monitoring processes. A willingness to travel within the UK and overseas is essential and previous monitoring experience would be an advantage.
