The University of Oxford Diabetes Trials Unit (DTU) is looking for an experienced programmer to join the Informatics team. The DTU is a UKCRC registered clinical trials unit, specialising in performing national and multinational clinical trials related to the treatment and management of cardiometabolic and related disorders.
Reporting to the DTU’s Head of Informatics, you will work with a close knit team including other programmers and will be responsible for designing and implementing web based and desktop applications to support clinical trials, as well as software packages developed in the DTU for external users. The post offers a great deal of variety and challenge, working with different languages and software platforms including our Electronic Data Collection system OpenClinica.
Candidates should have a recognised computing qualification or equivalent experience, and must also have in-depth knowledge of programming in high-level languages such as Visual Basic, php, C++ or ASP.Net, including working with SQL databases. It is also essential to have an understanding of the need to validate and document the software lifecycle process to the standards required to meet clinical trial regulations.
The post-holder will be required to liaise with users to agree software requirements, create test documents, perform demonstrations and provide training in DTU systems as required, and therefore must have the ability to communicate and present to both IT and non-IT people working on clinical trials.
The post is a full time position (part time considered) for a fixed term until 31st December 2023 in the first instance. A mixture of home and office working can be arranged. Requests for an informal discussion should be sent to email@example.com.
