Applications are invited for the post of Field Epidemiology Co-ordinator at the newly established MRC Epidemiology Unit. The Unit was set up in October 2003 to study the genetic and environmental determinants of obesity, diabetes, and related metabolic disorders.

You will work closely with the Unit Manager and with the Site Co-ordinators to ensure that standard practices are established and maintained and that good clinical practice is observed.

A relevant scientific degree or nursing qualification is required together with experience of managing clinical research staff, ideally in a hospital/GP environment. You will need to be self-motivated, enthusiastic and a good team worker with excellent communication skills. Experience of running multi-centre trials would be an advantage.
