The role holder will contribute to the effective and efficient support of research and innovation at King’s and the Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre through the delivery of robust support of the College’s Research Governance agenda. They will need to develop a broad perspective, engaging positively and proactively with both national, College and NHS research governance requirements and embracing opportunities to support our researchers to ensure research of the highest quality and standard.

The role holder will provide operational support to the responsible team with the primary focus being on Rosalind, the high performance– and hybrid cloud-computing research platform at King’s College London. The role will involve balancing General Data Protection Regulation-specific work and broader research governance support, in order to play a key role in the effective management and processing of research data on Rosalind. The overarching aim will be to ensure that all research is conducted in compliance with the relevant policies and legislation.

The role holder will develop a thorough knowledge of research data governance requirements and engage proactively with a range of stakeholders and associated third parties in order to understand user needs, resolve issues and identify opportunities for improvement.

Rosalind is co-funded and operated by King’s College London (KCL) and the NIHR biomedical research centres (BRCs) at the South London and Maudsley (SLaM), and Guy’s and St. Thomas (GSTT) NHS Foundation Trusts. It offers a uniquely collaborative platform, providing high performance compute, data storage, and infrastructure-as-a-service, accommodating a wide variety of large-scale, compute– and data-intensive workloads across a range of disciplines, such as medical bioinformatics, computational (natural) sciences, health informatics and analytics, biostatistics, economics, and more.

Researchers on Rosalind are drawn from a wide spectrum of departments across KCL and the SLaM and GSTT BRCs, and also often include affiliated collaborators from King’s Health Partners (KHP), the academic health sciences centre which partners the College with three successful NHS Foundation Trusts.

The goal will be to enable novel, high profile research projects and next-generation analytics on Rosalind in emerging fields such as health informatics that involve access to clinical or sensitive data resources.
