Applications are invited for the position of BRC Informatics Programme Manager with an interest and experience in clinical research. The Royal Marsden is a world leader in cancer research, treatment and education. Together with our academic partner, The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR), we are the largest comprehensive cancer centre in Europe and the only National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Biomedical Research Centre specialising in cancer in the UK.
BRC Digital: capability, informatics, Big Data, e-Health, is a cross-cutting theme within the BRC, the focus on which will provide a world-class digital toolkit and the technical expertise to enable integrative research. This will help us to evaluate and guide the development of novel diagnostic procedures and treatments, to integrate data from all sources in a patient-centred way and to support patients in daily life.
Huge advances in technology and computing capabilities mean that the vast amount of data that are generated through clinical care, and the wide range of patients and cancers we see at The Royal Marsden, provides the opportunity to rapidly progress our understanding of cancer and to make a difference for our patients now and in the future. Navigating these data and understanding the relationship between a patient, a cancer and treatment will provide the answers to questions such as why do some patients respond to treatment and others dont? and will bring researchers together, helping them to collaborate on analysis of complex datasets, as a means of identifying new approaches to combination or adaptive cancer treatment.
As part of its five year strategy, the Royal Marsden will be implementing a number of key clinical and corporate systems which must be delivered effectively and on time in order to achieve the overall programme of works, as a result the Trust is seeking a senior individual who has over five years experience of implementing multi-million pound projects including high performance computing solutions, and clinical research system implementations across a variety of complex organisational structures. The incumbent must have considerable experience of working in the NHS, and have the ability to communicate effective across the whole Trust organisational structure. Finally the role will be expected to provide guidance and mentoring for more junior members of staff ensuring that any sub-projects are delivering in line with best practice and expected timescales, quality and budget.
