Trial Coordinator



We are seeking to recruit an experienced Trial Coordinator to support the trials and programmes within the Global Health Trials Unit (GHTU) in the Clinical Sciences Department. As the first institution of its kind in the world, dedicated to education and research in tropical diseases, it’s an exciting time to join LSTM as we enter our 125th anniversary year in 2023.

The Global Health Trials Unit is a specialist unit with an international outlook and focus. We design, conduct, analyse, and publish global health trials in low and middle-income countries (LMICs). GHTU’s strategic support covers several key areas for researchers and collaborators: clinical trials, trial management, data management and statistical support. Our aim is to deliver clinical trial services, within a GCP envelope, in challenging environments and to provide partners with the necessary tools to conduct research in a pragmatic but efficient manner.

The successful post holder will be responsible for the overall efficient day-to-day management of the BabyGel trial including obtaining all relevant approvals, budget management, monitoring recruitment, follow-up and data collection, and managing closeout procedures. This really is a fantastic opportunity to join a world-renowned organisation and make a significant contribution to research within a well-established and successful group.

Key Responsibilities are (but not limited to):

  • To provide general support to chief/principal investigators and programme manager to ensure that the trial is progressing as planned
  • To develop the procedures to ensure adherence to regulatory and ethical requirements as well as trial protocols and administrative requirements
  • To ensure full and open communications with all stakeholders in the trial
  • To co-ordinate the preparation and publication of data, reports and information
  • To assist in updating the protocol, study materials, training packages, trial manuals and work instructions or Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)
  • To track progress at trial sites and to ensure good recruitment, compliance with the protocol and the quality and timeliness of data collection
  • To arrange meetings, teleconferences and video conferences relating to the project

The ideal candidate will have a degree in or equivalent in a relevant life sciences or global public health subject, or equivalent years’ experience in clinical trial management. A sound appreciation of GCP and regulatory/ethical requirements is essential, as is a proven track record of working in a clinical or medical research environment. We need someone with the ability to thrive in a team environment as well as being able to deliver in a meticulous and accurate manner as an individual. Ideally you will also be able to demonstrate:

  • Experience in the management, co-ordination and monitoring of clinical trials
  • A high degree of computer literacy and proficiency in the use of computer software
  • Excellent project management combined with evidence of successful complex task completion
