We seek to appoint two full-time Project Managers to work on two academic gene therapy clinical trials for either MPSII or MPSIIIA patients. The posts are both available for an immediate start for a fixed term period until the 30th October 2024.

The position offers an ideal opportunity for an enthusiastic, well-motivated individual to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team to manage and ensure the success of this gene therapy clinical trial in MPSII or MPSIIIA patients. Both trials require an ambitious Project Manager to manage the day to day runnings of the trial, liaising with the Sponsor, Clinical site, managing CRO and other third parties.

You will also support the development of other new and ongoing clinical trials within the group and provide administrative support in the submission of industrial funding bids, grant applications and support the set up and running of a GCP facility. The post holder will have excellent interpersonal, communication, IT, and organisational skills, will be able to work with minimal supervision, and will have experience within research, preferably in biological or medical sciences. Adherence to good clinical practice (GCP) is essential to this role, particularly with regard to data handling and record keeping.
