Upsilon Global are looking for an experienced Senior CRA interested in joining a small, close-knit team to monitor key sites across Italy. Working as part of a small team, you will be working dedicated to studies within Oncology or Rare Diseases.

If you’re perhaps working for a large Sponsor/CRO and are becoming frustrated by the multiple communication lines and management layers, or are perhaps frustrated by excessive lengthy processes, with this team you’ll be able to get things done when they need to be done and have the autonomy to make key decisions rather than have to wait days/weeks for answers.

What’s more exciting are the opportunities for progression, the exposure to a variety of operational functions most larger companies restrict to separate business units and the innovative compounds small specialist companies work with. 

Main responsibilities

  • Perform all types of site visits including, but not limited to, qualification visits, initiation visits, monitoring visits, motivational visits, audit support visits, and termination visits
  • To identify potential sites for a proposed study in conjunction with the Project Team, and conduct feasibility assessment of sites as required
  • Ensure that all study related communication including e-mail is tracked, printed and filed as required
  • To track patient recruitment by contacting investigators as specified for the study, and discuss potential study risks and opportunities with the Project Manager and LCRA
  • To liaise with all other appropriate departments to ensure the smooth running of the study
  • Mentor and train other CRA’s as and when required
  • Prove assistance in the submissions procedures
  • To assemble files and ensure documents for the trial master file accurately reflect the progress of the study
  • Other Ad-Hoc CRA duties

Education and Qualifications

  • A BSc or BA degree in a life sciences related field
  • A minimum of 4 years’ experience as a CRA
  • Experience in Oncology is essential
  • Sound knowledge of ICH/GCP and regulatory requirements and proven background in successful regulatory submissions
  • Experience using clinical trial management systems
  • Knowledge of submissions procedures in Italy would be beneficial
