Job Description

Senior Clinical Research Coordinator – Liggins Institute

About us

The Liggins Institute was the University’s first Large Scale Research Institute. It is a world leading centre for translational research on maternal, fetal and child health; the impact of nutrition on health throughout life; the determinants of a healthy life, and knowledge translation.

Our research programme focuses on how maternal, fetal and neonatal nutrition and the intrauterine environment affect fetal and postnatal growth, development and long term health. We are also working to understand the causes and consequences of preterm birth and intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR), which together affect more than 8,000 babies born in New Zealand each year. These conditions have long term implications including neonatal and on-going illness, compromised growth and cognitive development, and increased risk of chronic adult conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

We are seeking a highly motivated and experienced Senior Clinical Research Coordinator to join the dynamic research team at the Liggins Institute on a fixed term basis to coordinate a range of clinical studies involving mothers, babies and young children. The successful candidate will be responsible for the effective coordination of all aspects of multicenter trials and cohort studies, including study set up, recruitment, data collection, monitoring, funding, approvals and reporting.

Our ideal candidate

  • You will possess excellent interpersonal and communication skills
  • Experience in trial coordination, working with families and membership of multidisciplinary teams
  • Have the ability to manage multiple priorities in a busy environment
  • Will have excellent organisational and planning skills as well as good written and verbal communication skills.
  • Have a strong passion for research, be self-motivated, enthusiastic and enjoy working as part of a team.
  • A relevant tertiary qualification e.g. nursing, public health, social work or education.
  • Certification/qualification in good clinical practice and human research subject protection.
  • A minimum of 2 years’ experience in clinical research in maternal and perinatal health, including site setup and experimental drug management and distribution

Why work for us?

  • Flexible employment practices
  • Career development programmes
