The Stratified Medicine Consortium has been established to improve the survival from Alcoholic hepatitis (AH), by refining the way we use prednisolone, repurpose existing drugs and facilitate commercial development of novel therapeutics.
Challenges in AH management include the exacerbation of infection risk in new therapeutic development, the lack of a diagnostic test, inaccuracy of prognostic scores, inability to control persistent inflammation within the liver and failure of hepatic regeneration. Paucity of information on the mechanisms of disease exacerbate these clinical issues. The programme aims to address these challenges by building on the results of the STOPAH trial and develop biomarkers for diagnosis, prognosis and stratification of infection risk.
Improving the outcome from AH requires coordinated input from immunological, metabolic, genetic and clinical studies which can only be achieved through large scale translational research employing the best hepatology investigators in the UK.
Overall management of the consortium will be conducted by the Consortium Management Group (CMG) comprising the PI (chair), workstrand leads, industry collaborator, patient representative, chair of the scientific advisory board and project manager.
The purpose of this Project Manager role is to support the CMG of the Stratified Medicine Consortium. The Project Manager has overall responsibility for monitoring progress of all projects in the portfolio to ensure they are delivered on time and to budget, and comply with all relevant research and information governance regulations.
The successful candidate will be expected to assist the Principal Investigator(s) with the planning and development of the research strategy of the group, and will have overall responsibility for monitoring progress of all projects in the portfolio to ensure they are delivered on time and to budget, and comply with all relevant research and information governance regulations. In addition, the post holder will line manage, supervise and mentor team members, delegating tasks where appropriate and ensuring staff work to their maximum potential and have the opportunity to fulfil their career ambitions.
The successful candidate will have a degree (MSc, MRes PhD) or equivalent experience in science or healthcare related subject. Experience of working in a research environment or research funding organisation is essential as is the ability to demonstrate experience of working with budgets and financial management.
The post is full time, fixed term until 31 March 2023.
