The Centre for Trials Research at Cardiff University is the largest group of academic clinical trials staff in Wales. The Centre tackles the big diseases and health concerns of our time, including growing resistance to antibiotics, early cancer diagnosis and how to eliminate health inequalities. It achieves this by forming partnerships with researchers and building lasting relationships with the public, whose participation is essential for the success of studies.

Educated to PhD level in a related subject, a proven portfolio of world-class research in trials and an established and sustainable record of research output in major international journals is sought, ideally in one of the theme areas of the College. Knowledge of the current status of research in trials is necessary, as is an ability and willingness to lead work across traditional disciplinary boundaries, and to establish collaborations with academic and industry partners across institutions and internationally. You will require proven experience of competitive research funding along with a strong portfolio of research grants, and an established record of collaborations with industry, charity or government partners with international academic partners
The ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate a strong commitment to external engagement activities with communities, practitioners and policy-makers, including the translation of research knowledge and evidence into practice. An ability and willingness to develop interdisciplinary links and team working with researchers in different Schools to enhance the overall strength of clinical trials across the University is essential, as is a proven ability to successfully supervise and support, research and administration staff and PhD students.
