The studies include Airwave Health Monitoring Study, the Imperial Health Knowledge Bank (IHKB) and COVID-19 projects such as the Real-time Assessment of Community Transmission (REACT) Study.

The Airwave Health Monitoring Study is an ongoing occupational cohort study among police force employees across all of Great Britain involving 53,000 participants. As a Research Tissue Bank, the Study collects a wide variety of data, including clinical and biological markers, genomics and metabolomics data, and constitutes a valuable research resource. From Nov 2015 the study has been undertaking follow-up assessment and continues to collect rich phenotypic and biological data from cohort participants.

The Imperial Health Knowledge Bank (IHKB) aims to develop a unique biomedical research resource using data and blood samples collected from Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust patients undergoing routine clinical care. As a research tissue bank, IHKB has recruited >400 patients and currently contributing study samples for biomedical research projects tackling COVID-19.

The Real-time Assessment of Community Transmission (REACT) programme is a series of studies that are seeking to improve understanding of how the COVID-19 pandemic is progressing across England.

Duties and responsibilities

Essential requirements

You should have a thorough working knowledge of health screen logistics and organisation. You should be familiar with recruiting participants and patients to health studies and the design of public engagement activities and initiatives. Experience of developing and reviewing standard operating is essential. You should be motivated and extremely organised and detail-oriented with experience of working in multi-disciplinary teams.
