Senior Clinical Trial Project Manager

Are you interested in conducting clinical research within a non-profit organisation? If so, we are looking for keen and talented Senior Project Managers to take on lead roles in one of our various clinical studies.

The European Clinical Research Alliance for Infectious Diseases — Ecraid — is an operational clinical research organisation dedicated to performing high-quality clinical research around infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance. Ecraid’s focus is on two main areas: firstly, setting up and performing clinical trials, and secondly, developing and maintaining a large international hospital and primary care network.

The international clinical trials in our portfolio vary from observational cohort studies to complex adaptive platform trials. Most of them are investigator-initiated and publicly funded, but we also perform industry-initiated trials. Ecraid is dedicated to conducting clinical research that is embedded in medical practice and that focuses on patient needs.

Ecraid is an independent research foundation established in January 2022. We are a growing organisation with 60+ staff. Our work started within UMC Utrecht and projects such as COMBACTE and PREPARE. UMC Utrecht is our lead partner, and we continue to collaborate extensively with them and our other international academic partners. We are a results-driven, diverse, professional organisation working in an informal environment. We believe that talented people combined with personal development is essential to achieve excellent results.

As a Senior Project Manager, you are responsible for the planning, preparation, execution, and closure of complex clinical trials within ICH/GCP guidelines and the applicable law and regulations. For most of our future trials, Ecraid will act as a sponsor. This means that you are fully aware of the ICH GCP sponsor requirements that must be adhered to. As a Senior Project Manager, you always provide sponsor oversight, will manage a study team of junior project managers, data managers and clinical trial administrators, and manage key stakeholders. You will report to the Head of Operations.

To succeed in this role, the following knowledge, skills and experience are required:

  • at least six years of experience in international project management within a CRO, academic centre, or pharma company
  • solid knowledge of ICH GCP and applicable laws and regulations
  • a broad experience of all phases of the clinical trial life cycle
  • leading a study team consisting of approximately five team members
  • outstanding communication skills
  • audit and/or health authority inspection experience is advantageous

You are enthusiastic, results-driven, decisive, and bright. You are quick to understand various research designs, you thrive in a fast-changing environment, and you find it rewarding to work in an international setting.

We offer a challenging and meaningful job in an inspiring work environment in Utrecht with intelligent, cooperative, and enthusiastic colleagues. We offer a temporary employment contract for one year initially, with the possibility of an extension. We offer a gross salary of between €4,952 and €6,653 monthly based on a full-time workload of 36 hours weekly and your experience.
