As a part-time Scientific Advisor, working 15 hours a week, with the Good Clinical Trials Collaborative (GCTC) you will work as part of a small and friendly team, where you will guide the development of novel resources that will help the Collaborative’s Guidance for Good Randomized Clinical Trials achieve maximum impact.

More about the role
You will be a key member of a small project team. You will lead the development of the scientific content for materials and content to accompany and promote the Collaborative’s Guidance for Good Randomized Controlled Trials and advise on the scientific content of the advocacy strategy, communications materials and training tools and materials that build an understanding of – and capability and confidence in – the guidance for our key audiences.
You will collaborate with a network of world-leading experts who tackle diverse health challenges, making this an ideal role to stretch your own perspectives and develop your expertise.
More about you
You are a creative and strategic problem-solver with well-established and demonstrable clinical trials subject-matter expertise. You have a strong interest in the regulatory and operational context that the global clinical trials enterprise exists in and have a commitment to raising the scientific and ethical standards of medical research.
You may be an emerging or established key opinion leader in efficient and effective clinical trials regulation, design or management. The role would also suit candidates looking to take a step towards Senior Leadership positions.
As a part-time role, you may be looking to blend this work with other personal or professional commitments and goals, and the Collaborative will consider all circumstances and find suitable arrangements for the right candidate.
The Collaborative’s mission needs to engage patients and the public, governments and regulators, research funders, and medical and scientific communities all across the world and your technical competencies will be complemented by well-developed communication skills.
More about the organisation

He co-leads the landmark RECOVERY clinical trial into treatments for COVID-19 which identified that treatment with an inexpensive steroid, dexamethasone, improved the chances of survival for the most severe cases.
