Position overview:


We are expanding our Scientific Affairs group and we are actively looking to recruit a number of Clinical Trial Liaisons to be home based anywhere in Europe - but ideally in the following countries Poland, Russia or Hungary. 


In this exciting role you will be developing relationships with investigators and research site staff to facilitate patient recruitment. You will work in concert with PRA’s Clinical Research Associates (CRAs) to ensure that investigators and site staff have a thorough understanding of the investigational agents being used in the study, the trial’s eligibility criteria and all study procedures. Particular attention will be given to assessing the effectiveness of each site’s strategy used to identify potentially eligible subjects.


The Clinical Trial Liaison will understand how the trial fits into the site’s pattern of treatment for the condition and how any competing clinical trials or upcoming drug approvals may affect the progress of recruitment. Repeated interactions will be needed over the course of the trial to ensure that the trial remains as a priority with investigators and staff. The Clinical Trial Liaison will function as part of the study team and will interact frequently with sponsor companies and their field personnel. Furthermore, the Clinical Trial Liaison will serve as link with key investigators to help ensure that they receive prompt assistance with any queries and that any concerns they have are promptly transmitted to the trial’s sponsor.


Thus, your tasks will include: 


  • Understanding the scientific basis of assigned clinical trials
  • Creating educational materials to effectively communicate the science behind the clinical trial
  • Communicating the scientific basis of the trials to other team members, investigators and site staff
  • Identifying effective prescreening strategies for each trial and recommend improvements
  • Providing detailed reports of interactions with investigators and site staff
  • Serving as a therapeutic expert for internal PRA staff
  • Serving as the team lead for studies employing multiple Clinical Trial Liaisons
  • Provide education and mentoring to other Clinical Trial Liaisons
  • Participating in business development activities 

You are: 


Collaborative, communicative and confident.


The successful candidate must hold an advanced degree (PhD, PharmD or Medical Degree) within life sciences/medical sciences, and must have had several years of experience in a clinical research related field (Medical Science Liaison, Study Coordinator etc). Experience of dealing with clinical trial investigators is a definite plus. 


Strong verbal and written communication skills, along with experience of networking with KOLs, delivering presentations and working on scientific publications is also required.


As you will be required to hold complex medical discussions with clinical trial investigators across Europe, fluency in English is required. 
Travel: 50% across Europe.


Your health, your family, your career, your money — the things that matter to you, matter to us. The benefits of PRA just get better and better.
