Research Data Services Officer
£35,498 - £37,427
The General Practice Research Database (GPRD) is the largest validated Primary Care database in the UK. It is a crucial resource in the development of innovations in the field of drug safety assessment. Using GPRD and increasingly other European and global database resources, we are undertaking high quality research in drug safety, health outcomes and public health. Positioned within the MHRA, the independently run GPRD unit is internationally recognised as a high quality observational healthcare data research unit.
The major aim of your role will be to provide and administer data assurance and data management systems for the various data streams used by researchers for studies. These systems will be used to validate and verify research data sources and make them available to research scientists. You'll also co-ordinate work between technical staff, epidemiologists and statisticians and ensure that processes, documentation and quality assurance/control meet the required standards.
Along with a degree in a relevant scientific discipline, you'll have experience of managing data in a healthcare research environment. This will be matched with a sound understanding of developing and maintaining standard operational procedures and implementing process control and management solutions. Proven analytical thinking and knowledge of standards and guidelines associated with healthcare data research will also be important.
