This will randomise 2,844 patients with severe but asymptomatic aortic stenosis to early valve replacement or a conventional, guideline recommended, strategy of close observation with valve replacement if symptoms develop.

In addition, you may also have the opportunity to provide support to other clinical research projects being run locally, working with colleagues based at Royal Perth Hospital, other large metropolitan hospitals within Perth and at the Western Australian Health Translation Network (WAHTN) Clinical Trials Centre at Curtin University.

To be considered for this role, you will demonstrate:

  • Relevant tertiary qualification or demonstrated equivalent competency
  • Extensive relevant management experience in the conduct, implementation or management of clinical trials
