If this may be of interest please see the advertisement for this post, which will be based at Guy’s Hospital in London.

In essence, she will be defining the hourly rates and general overall costs to ensure all rates are aligned across the different studies. She will be working in tandem with the Executive Director and Working Party Chairs.
