GSK’s clinical imaging group is responsible for supporting clinical imaging within GSK’s clinical trials across therapeutic areas and phases of development.

The imaging group’s remit is to anticipate and develop imaging techniques for future R&D needs as well as deliver imaging within the current pipeline.

This is achieved through a balanced external model, working alongside external consultants, academic institutions, niche CROs, and traditional CROs to meet the varied needs of GSK.

This role will complement the existing clinical imaging expertise within the imaging group by bringing in functional and structural imaging expertise to strengthen our ability to deliver a flow of imaging-

based studies. Therapeutic areas supported will be broad, but an initial focus will be on supporting the oncology portfolio including oversight of imaging CROs.

This role will provide YOU the opportunity to lead key activities to progress YOUR career. These responsibilities include some of the following :

  • Be an internal consultant to GSK study teams, providing imaging expertise and a critical evaluation of imaging techniques relative to other candidate biomarkers (both imaging and non-imaging)

  • Promote the efficiency of working with CROs through the delivery of standardized technical documentation (e.g. protocol wording, acquisition manuals, image review charters)
  • Translate advanced imaging techniques from leading academic centers to the multicenter setting ensuring quality and consistency across sites (e.
  • g. semi-quantitative FDG PET)

  • Ensure GSK is working with the best niche and traditional imaging CROs; maintaining close ties with the CROs and working alongside procurement to outsource imaging studies with minimal internal operational involvement
  • Support academic alliances including studentships, embedded scientists, consultant network, and investigator sponsored methodology studies
