As a Clinical Trial Administrator (CTA), you will support scientific research in the broadest sense of the word. Roughly speaking, the tasks consist of three components: handling contracts, archiving study documents and supporting the project management team. Depending on your qualities together with the needs within a study, the ratio between the three components can vary greatly.
For the handling of contracts with study sites you make sure they are adequately signed and processed. For this we expect you to process these documents quickly and to be accurate. In addition, the CTA has an important role in archiving all other study documents. It is important that you can process large amounts of documents efficiently without losing overview. In doing so, you make it possible to reproduce a study. This is a prerequisite for high-quality research. Lastly, you support the study team. This can entail anything and offers the opportunity to get acquainted with the project. For example; writing minutes, organizing meetings, communicating with hospitals and following up on outstanding tasks.
You work on multiple clinical trials and report to the senior CTA and/or senior project leaders.
