Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research
Head of Research

Job description: head_of_research_-_pack

Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research is here to stop people dying from blood cancer, to make patients’ lives better and to stop people getting blood cancers in the first place. A major component of how we are achieving this is by funding a comprehensive research portfolio aimed at revealing how blood cancer works, driving smarter faster diagnosis and inspiring new treatments and better care. Our research commitment over the next 5 years is already £60 million with expected further annual investments of up to £30 million.

We are a dynamic and determined charity which truly believes that we will not stop until we’ve beaten blood cancers. You can be part of making this happen by managing and helping develop LLR’s clinical and non-clinical research portfolio to achieve the maximum patient benefit in the shortest possible time. You will also work with our fundraising and communications teams to ensure we maximise the huge opportunities that our research portfolio and other patient activities present.

To do this you will need…

• Experience in the area of clinical trial management/administration or experience of Post-Doctoral research into cancer biology
• An understanding/experience of peer review processes
• Experience of effective public speaking and delivering engaging presentations
• Exceptional oral and written communication skills with the ability to effectively convey research aims and outcomes to a range of audiences including non-scientific groups
• Have the ability to lead and motivate a small research team and, as a member of the organisation’s leadership team, provide leadership and strategic input across functions

If you have the skills and qualities we are looking for we would love to hear from you.  For an informal discussion please contact Prof. Chris Bunce 020 7405 0101.

In return we can commit to actively developing you and offer excellent benefits including a 35 hour week, life assurance, pension, childcare vouchers, ride 2 work scheme, 25 days holiday and interest free season ticket loan.

If you are interested in joining an ambitious organisation committed to beating blood cancers, please apply with a cover letter that explains how you meet the Person Specification requirements, and an appropriate CV.

Please note you must also be a committed non-smoker.
