The post-holder will be required to work with all members of the multi-disciplinary team in the recruitment, screening and care of patients predominantly in Radiotherapy clinical trials. The post requires excellent communication skills, an understanding of scientific protocols, and an ability to prioritise workload and to work independently and flexibly.

The post holder will work as a part of an established team of research nurses and clinical trials assistants. Liaison with external research partners such as pharmaceutical companies, research networks and clinical trials units will also be required.
