ISARIC senior capacity development MANAGER 

 Applications to be received by 12pm on Wednesday 24th of April 2019

Grade 8: £40,792 - £48,677 p.a. (pro rata for part-time)

There is a critical need to empower clinical researchers in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs) to lead the research response to epidemic infections. We are looking for a dynamic individual with experience of developing and implementing capacity development and training programmes for clinical research in LMICs.

The International Severe Acute Respiratory and emerging Infection Consortium (ISARIC) is a global federation of clinical research networks providing a proficient, coordinated, and agile clinical research response to outbreak-prone infectious diseases. Our mission is to generate and disseminate clinical research evidence for outbreak-prone infectious diseases, whenever and wherever they occur. We have an ambitious 5 year programme, which includes setting up and running new trials for emerging pathogens but, equally importantly, capacity building through training and strengthening the ISARIC network.

You will work with the ISARIC Global Support Centre and ISARIC members to identify where and how we can best support clinical research capacity building in LMICs. The ability to travel, to be diplomatic, collaborative and flexible will be required as we are a response network and do not focus solely on research preparedness. Scientific seminars are one of the cross cutting projects on which you will work. Additionally, we are funded to provide career development fellowships for clinical researchers from LMICs. A third element is the creation of a modular training programme.

This is an exciting new role, in an expanding team, which offers an opportunity for international work contributing to clinical research outbreak preparedness and response. You will need to be enthusiastic and energetic with a self-starting attitude.

This post is full-time (part-time may be considered) and fixed-term for 5 years (in the first instance).

Only applications received by 12.00 noon on 24 April 2019 will be considered.
